## Teaching Mathematics in Primary SchoolsThe book focuses on learning outcomes and the general principles that underlie educational practices rather than any specific curriculum. current approaches to mathematics education are explained and critiqued, and insights into why some students have difficulties with mathematics are provided. Teachers are shown how to encourage their students to develop deep learning in mathematics, and to relate mathematics to the rest of the curriculum. [Back cover] |
