Primary and Middle Years Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally
This text is targeted towards teaching primary and middle years mathematics units in the Bachelor of Education degree.
Illustrates how children learn mathematics, and then shows pre-service teachers the most effective methods of teaching mathematics through hands-on, problem-based activities.
Serves as a go-to reference for the mathematics content suggested for Foundation to Year 9 as recommended in the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics (ACARA, 2016), and for the research-based strategies that illustrate how students best learn this content.
Presents a practical resource of robust, problem-based activities and tasks that can engage students in the use of significant mathematical concepts and skills.
Reports on technology that makes teaching mathematics in a problem-based approach more visible, including access to ready-to-use activity pages and references to quality websites.
