Developed from the authorâ€™s experience working with practising and pre-service primary teachers, this book explains the concepts and processes of the mathematics taught in primary schools in a straightforward, practical and comprehensive way. It aims to equip teachers with the confidence to explain mathematical ideas and processes to their pupils, with an emphasis on the development of understanding in preference to the application of rules.

Each chapter covers a particular mathematical topic and is organised into short accessible sections, with learning and teaching points highlighted, an extensive glossary of terms, and self-assessment questions with answers.

A very valuable reference for both teachers and teachers in training.
