This fourth book in the Mathematics Recovery series equips teachers with detailed pedagogical knowledge and resources for teaching number to 7 to 11-year olds.

Drawing on extensive programs of research, curriculum development, and teacher development, the book offers a coherent, up-to-date approach emphasizing computational fluency and the progressive development of students' mathematical sophistication. The book is organized in key domains of number instruction, including structuring numbers 1 to 20, knowledge of number words and numerals, conceptual place value, mental computation, written computation methods, fractions, and early algebraic reasoning.

Key Features:

  • Fine-grained progressions of instruction within each domain
  • Detailed descriptions of students' strategies and difficulties
  • Assessment tasks with notes on students' responses
  • Classroom-ready instructional activities
  • An accompanying CD with extensive instructional resources

This book is designed for classroom and intervention teachers, special education teachers, and classroom assistants. The book is an invaluable resource for mathematics advisors and coaches, learning support staff, numeracy consultants, curriculum developers, teacher educators, and researchers.

 

'This is the must-have resource our teachers have been waiting for! Developing Number Knowledge transforms an extensive body of research and field testing into a practical guide of assessments and instructional activities designed especially for older elementary students. As an instructional support teacher, I will use this guide when helping teachers plan developmentally appropriate lessons for their struggling students' -
Jackie Amato, District Math Recovery Leader

'Essential reading for every teacher of mathematics in primary or early secondary education, 'Developing Number Knowledge' is a professional development tool with detailed assessment and instructional content for the classroom. It is for teachers working one-to-one, with small groups or whole classes who want their children to make sense of mathematics and become confident, successful mathematicians. With its foundations in research and extensive classroom practice, it will challenge the way you teach! Maths Recovery teachers will welcome this addition to their 'tool kit'' -
