About the Author:

Dr Robert J. (Bob) Wright holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in mathematics from the University of Queensland (Australia) and a doctoral degree in mathematics education from the University of Georgia. He is an adjunct professor in mathematics education at Southern Cross University in New South Wales. Bob is an internationally recognized leader in assessment and instruction relating to children’s early arithmetical knowledge and strategies, publishing four books, and many articles and papers in this field. His work over the last 20 years has included the development of the Mathematics Recovery Program which focuses on providing specialist training for teachers to advance the numeracy levels of young children assessed as low-attainers. In Australia and New Zealand, Ireland, the UK, the USA, Canada, Mexico and elsewhere, this program has been implemented widely and applied extensively to classroom teaching and to average and able learners as well as low-attainers. He has conducted several research projects funded by the Australian Research Council including the most recent project focusing on assessment and intervention in the early arithmetical learning of low-attaining 8–10-year-olds.



Garry Stanger has had a wide-ranging involvement in primary, secondary and tertiary education in Australia. He has held positions of Head Teacher, Deputy Principal and Principal, and has been a Mathematics Consultant with the New South Wales Department of Education. He has also taught in schools in the USA. He has worked with Robert Wright on the Mathematics Recovery project since its inception in 1992 and has been involved in the development of the Count Me In Too early numeracy project. His last project before finally retiring was working with Jenny Bednall, Head of Junior School, Trinity South and the thirty teachers at the Trinity College schools in South Australia. 



Jim Martland is a member of the International Board of Mathematics Recovery and Founder of the Mathematics Recovery Council (UK and Ireland). He was a Senior Fellow in the Department of Education at the University of Liverpool. In his long career in education he has held headships in primary and middle schools and was Director of Primary Initial Teacher Training. In all the posts he continued to teach and pursue research in primary mathematics. His current work is with local education authorities in the UK and Canada, delivering professional development courses on assessing children’s difficulties in numeracy and designing and evaluating teaching interventions.

Review:

Teaching Number in the Classroom successfully fuses thinking, learning and assessment together in pragmatic and extremely helpful ways. Written by internationally recognised leaders in the field of maths recovery (see www.mathrecovery.com) this book is an outstanding resource that will fill you with a range of ideas and insights into how you can make a lasting impact on children’s maths progress′ - Times Educational Supplement

′This book ‘Teaching Number in the Classroom with 4-8 year olds’ is an absolute "must-have" for all educators involved in early number. Based on sound theoretical foundations, it offers a wealth of down-to-earth, tried and tested, effective approaches to teaching early number concepts and skills. It is a clearly a book written by teachers for teachers. Every single activity in the book is a nugget. Engaging with these activities will change your whole approach to teaching early number′ - Noreen O’Loughlin, Associate Vice-President/Lecturer in Maths Education, Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick, Ireland.

′The authors prove it is possible to write a teacher friendly/teacher useful mathematics book that connects theory and practice. This book may become the primary teacher′s "Math Bible"′ - Angela Giglio Andrews, Primary Intervention Specialist and Coordinator, and Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education, National Louis University.

′At last a book is written by teachers for teachers based on sound research that will generate enquiry based learning. It is essential for every classroom with lots of mathematical activities. These will purposefully engage children and allow for differentiation for those who require additional support to understand the number system and the more able children who require to be challenged. Mathematical standards in our schools will improve tremendously following these instructional activities′ - Carole Cannon, Development Officer for Mathematics Recovery

′Teaching Number in the Classroom translates years of research into a very understandable and comprehensive approach for teaching children how the number system is structured and how to think like a mathematician.

For too many years there has been the perception that children who are struggling with mathematics don′t know the basic facts. The reality is that these children lack number knowledge and skills. Teaching Number in the Classroom will guide the educational professional through the steps of understanding the development of "number sense", identifying the current levels of knowledge and providing instruction that helps children use the "framework of mathematics" to solve number problems.

Teaching Number in the Classroom is a thinking skills approach to mathematics. Children are taught a variety of strategies for solving mathematical problems. The teacher using this book will be able to help all children develop a strong foundation of mathematical understanding′ - Carol Meland, K-3rd Grade Principal for the School District of Milton Wisconsin, USA
