Reflective practice is at the heart of effective teaching, and this book helps you develop into a reflective teacher of mathematics. Everything you need is here: guidance on developing your analysis and self-evaluation skills, the knowledge of what you are trying to achieve and why, and examples of how experienced teachers deliver successful lessons.

The book shows you how to plan lessons, how to make good use of resources and how to assess pupils` progress effectively. Each chapter contains points for reflection, which encourage you to break off from your reading and think about the challenging questions that you face as a new teacher.

If you are training to teach mathematics this book will help you to improve your classroom performance, by providing you with practical advice, but also by helping you to think in depth about the key issues. It also provides examples of the research evidence that is needed in academic work at Masters level, essential for anyone undertaking an M-level PGCE.
