Overview

Using and applying mathematics has been a central component of the National Curriculum in mathematics. However, the National Numeracy Strategy has adopted a new approach, in which 'using and applying' is integrated throughout the mathematics curriculum. This book aims to help teachers develop their understanding and practice in this crucial area. It is based on the findings of a major research study, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, in which a group of primary teachers worked closely with the research team to develop their thinking and practice. The book provides a clear conceptual analysis of the problem of application, together with extensive examples of ways in which teachers can address it in their classrooms at Key Stages 1 and 2. A novel feature of the book is that it includes first-hand accounts of practice in Japanese classrooms, and outlines what teachers in the UK and elsewhere may learn from Japanese methods.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The National Numeracy Strategy is the British version of the international concern about standards of mathematical achievement in schools. The authors diagnose knowledge application as the root of math literacy problems; but rather than prescribing best practices, they study a dozen primary school teachers as they developed ways of teaching math for application<-->in the context of theories of learning. Lessons are also taught from the whole class teaching approach used in Japan. Hughes is an education professor at the U. of Bristol; his coauthors are with the U. of Exeter. Distributed in the US by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
