Mathematics is a core subject and using and applying mathematics in problem solving activities is crucial in enabling children to use their knowledge and skills in a range of situations. Mathematics Across the Curriculum shows how to teach mathematical concepts through different subjects and discussing the reasoning and research behind using problem solving and investigation teaching techniques. Best practice for planning and assessment, classroom organisation and practice, and use of resources are all discussed, with clear links to recent research and government standards and initiatives. Case studies from practicing teachers enable readers to easily relate the theoretical information to their classroom and teaching.
Mathematics Across the Curriculum is essential reading for all trainee and newly qualified teachers seeking to teach engaging, inspiring and challenging mathematics lessons. It will also be a useful resource for established teachers embarking on their Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL).
