Understanding and Teaching Primary Mathematics in Australia
Written by best-selling author and teacher educator, Tony Cotton, in collaboration with experienced Australian primary maths teachers, Jess Greenbaum and Michael Minas, Understanding and Teaching Primary Mathematics in Australia combines pedagogy and mathematics subject knowledge to build teachers' confidence both in their mathematical subject knowledge and in their ability to teach mathematics effectively.
Adapted for Australian pre- and in-service teachers, the book covers all the key areas of the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics, from teaching number and calculation strategies, to exploring geometry and statistics. Chapters deal with the teaching of mathematics in the Early Years; inclusive approaches to mathematics teaching, teaching mathematics using digital technologies, as well as assessment and how to teach mathematical topics across the curriculum. Learning is scaffolded by a clear chapter structure that includes starting points, big ideas, teaching points, portfolio tasks, chapter summaries and reflections, as well as taking it further sections to extend learning.
Stimulating, accessible and containing a wealth of practical ideas for use in the classroom, Understanding and Teaching Primary Mathematics in Australia is an essential text for graduate and practicing teachers alike.
