"This book is the third in an important trilogy of edited collections on the teaching and learning of primary mathematics. To each book the editor, Ian Thompson, has attracted a team of expert contributors, and himself set the characteristically high standard of writing and clarity ... When, in 10 or 20 years' time, people want to know about the state of English primary mathematics at the turn of the 21st century, they will turn to this volume. You would do well to read it now."--"Mathematics in Schools". "This is the third book in the popular series edited by Ian Thompson that brings together an impressive array of contributing authors. Current issues are discussed in an informed but concise way that makes research accessible to the wider community of mathematics educators."--Julia Anghileri, University of Cambridge. This book explores the effect that the National Numeracy Strategy and its successor, the Primary Strategy, have had on the way in which mathematics is taught in primary schools.; Prominent contributors examine the Strategies' recommendations from the perspective of their own research areas or interests, and discuss the issues involved, including: ideas for extending current practice, suggestions of important aspects of mathematics teaching that are being given little or no emphasis, alternative approaches that could be integrated into current practice, and aspects of current practice that need to take account of recent research findings or emerging issues. Each chapter discusses implications for teaching and learning primary mathematics. The book will be particularly useful for trainees, practising teachers, mathematics coordinators and numeracy consultants. Contributors include: Mundher Adhami, Mike Askew, Carol Aubrey, Margaret Brown, Ann Dowker, Rosemary Hafeez, Steve Higgins, Keith Jones, Lesley Jones, Valsa Koshy, Alison Millett, Claire Mooney, Laurie Rousham, Malcolm Swan, Ian Thompson, and Helen J Williams.
