Product Description

Review

'Unlike many book based on research work this book doesn't just let teachers know what is going wrong with children's learning it actually gives some practical advice about what to do next. The whole book is based upon extensive observation and recording of individual children and their difficulties with mathematics. These children are the most difficult to plan for in a busy classroom and the authors appreciate the small steps and the different learning styles approaches needed for these children. This approach fits well with the NNS wave and springboard materials but takes the analysis of the individual's difficulties to a more detailed level. The book brings together research carried out across a range of countries and therefore shows the versatility of the approaches taken. This will be a very useful book for trainee teachers as it exemplifies how to use assessment to feed into teaching. It will be helpful for class teachers and mathematics co-ordinators as well as SENCOs to assist in improving the teaching and learning for specific children in our schools' - Mary Briggs, Primary and Early Years PGCE Co-ordinator, Institute of Education, University of Warwick

'This is a highly practical resource that will be appreciated by classroom and specialist teachers alike. It will provide teachers new to the Math Recovery program with practical help and support to diagnose errors and misconceptions in early numeracy. Practicing Math Recovery Specialists will be thrilled with the addition of four new highly focused assessments and an elaboration of the Learning Framework in Number.

Early Numeracy is admirably grounded in international research and well-established theory, characteristics that are much sought after in the current data driven educational environment.

Like many others, I was drawn to Math Recovery after reading the first edition of Early Numeracy. This second edition is a treasure - it is exciting to consider the impact it will have on children and teachers, and to the growth of the Math Recovery program' - Audrey Murray, Lead Teacher, Midwest Math Recovery Training Center, Minneapolis

About the Author

Dr Robert J. (Bob) Wright holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in mathematics from the University of Queensland (Australia) and a doctoral degree in mathematics education from the University of Georgia. He is an adjunct professor in mathematics education at Southern Cross University in New South Wales. Bob is an internationally recognized leader in assessment and instruction relating to children’s early arithmetical knowledge and strategies, publishing four books, and many articles and papers in this field. His work over the last 20 years has included the development of the Mathematics Recovery Program which focuses on providing specialist training for teachers to advance the numeracy levels of young children assessed as low-attainers. In Australia and New Zealand, Ireland, the UK, the USA, Canada, Mexico and elsewhere, this program has been implemented widely and applied extensively to classroom teaching and to average and able learners as well as low-attainers. He has conducted several research projects funded by the Australian Research Council including the most recent project focusing on assessment and intervention in the early arithmetical learning of low-attaining 8–10-year-olds.



Jim Martland is a member of the International Board of Mathematics Recovery and Founder of the Mathematics Recovery Council (UK and Ireland). He was a Senior Fellow in the Department of Education at the University of Liverpool. In his long career in education he has held headships in primary and middle schools and was Director of Primary Initial Teacher Training. In all the posts he continued to teach and pursue research in primary mathematics. His current work is with local education authorities in the UK and Canada, delivering professional development courses on assessing children’s difficulties in numeracy and designing and evaluating teaching interventions.

I used this book as a reference for sums the children were having difficulty with. I thought there were some good ideas. I didn't use the whole system as I just don't have the time to teach children individually. If only I had that luxury. However, there are some good pointers in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Assessing Young Children in Numeracy 25 Jun. 2008
By Math E. Matters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Early Numeracy: Assessment for Teaching and Intervention is based on research about and work in the Math Recovery program. Since most American teachers will not have had training in Math Recovery, many will find this book difficult to use. It is worth the time one spends, however, because the book is filled with performance assessment tasks that can be used to help teachers uncover gaps in young children's early number sense. While the small font size and technical jargon are somewhat tedious, the book is well written and informative. I would recommend this book to teachers already somewhat familiar with children's number sense development who wish to further their learning.

By Kerry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book clarifies what children really need to know. It gives testing tools and methods of intervention. It helped me to be more specific and set individual goals for the children in my class. I think it is a great resource.

This book is great especially if you have Math Recovery Training, or needing extra help in the classroom assessment. It arrived on time and in great condition.
