Product Description


'Teaching Number in the Classroom successfully fuses thinking, learning and assessment together in pragmatic and extremely helpful ways. Written by internationally recognised leaders in the field of maths recovery (see this book is an outstanding resource that will fill you with a range of ideas and insights into how you can make a lasting impact on children’s maths progress' - Times Educational Supplement

'This book ‘Teaching Number in the Classroom with 4-8 year olds’ is an absolute "must-have" for all educators involved in early number. Based on sound theoretical foundations, it offers a wealth of down-to-earth, tried and tested, effective approaches to teaching early number concepts and skills. It is a clearly a book written by teachers for teachers. Every single activity in the book is a nugget. Engaging with these activities will change your whole approach to teaching early number' - Noreen O’Loughlin, Associate Vice-President/Lecturer in Maths Education, Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick, Ireland.

'The authors prove it is possible to write a teacher friendly/teacher useful mathematics book that connects theory and practice. This book may become the primary teacher's "Math Bible"' - Angela Giglio Andrews, Primary Intervention Specialist and Coordinator, and Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education, National Louis University.

'At last a book is written by teachers for teachers based on sound research that will generate enquiry based learning. It is essential for every classroom with lots of mathematical activities. These will purposefully engage children and allow for differentiation for those who require additional support to understand the number system and the more able children who require to be challenged. Mathematical standards in our schools will improve tremendously following these instructional activities' - Carole Cannon, Development Officer for Mathematics Recovery

'Teaching Number in the Classroom translates years of research into a very understandable and comprehensive approach for teaching children how the number system is structured and how to think like a mathematician.

For too many years there has been the perception that children who are struggling with mathematics don't know the basic facts. The reality is that these children lack number knowledge and skills. Teaching Number in the Classroom will guide the educational professional through the steps of understanding the development of "number sense", identifying the current levels of knowledge and providing instruction that helps children use the "framework of mathematics" to solve number problems.

Teaching Number in the Classroom is a thinking skills approach to mathematics. Children are taught a variety of strategies for solving mathematical problems. The teacher using this book will be able to help all children develop a strong foundation of mathematical understanding' - Carol Meland, K-3rd Grade Principal for the School District of Milton Wisconsin, USA

I am a Learning Support Teacher and so have not taught maths in a class for a few years. I did, however, use some of the techniques to teach the children how to deal with some problem sums.

4.0 out of 5 stars Diagnosing Student Strengths and Difficulties with Number Sense 25 Jun 2008
By Math E. Matters - Published on
Teaching Number in the Classroom with 4-8 Year Olds contains highly detailed performance tasks that teachers can use to determine young children's strengths and weaknesses in number sense. It is a bit difficult to read this book cover-to-cover because the print size is small, and the language is quite technical. It is, however, worth the time spent reading it, as one would probably be hard pressed to find a source with more high-quality mathematics performance tasks than this book. The research and tasks come from the Math Recovery project, but teachers could make use of these tasks without having had Math Recovery training. I would recommend this book to early childhood teachers who are looking for ways to determine next teaching steps in number sense with their students.

Just the book I was looking for helping me with those students who are still having trouble with one-to-one correspondence as they count. Great practical and easy ideas and assessments to implement immediately, in a user-friendly format.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teaching Number in the Classroom with 4-8 year-olds 23 Feb 2008
By Allan M. Lawson - Published on
Already in it's fifth reprint in it's first year of publication attests to the popularity of this fascinating, research-based book, which is a 'must' for all concerned with the teaching of primary mathematics. Prof. Bob Wright continues to lead the way in this emerging 'New Times' field of early numeracy education. This book is truly inspirational and should be included in every university and teachers' training courses on primary mathematics education.
