An insightful, myth-busting book based on one core belief: maths doesn’t have to be scary!
Exploring the many myths around teaching and learning mathematics, this book offers practical strategies to dispel false beliefs and inspire teacher and pupil confidence in every primary maths lesson. Whether you’re an NQT finding your way around the maths curriculum, or an experienced teacher looking to boost your practice, this book is full of ideas, advice and activities to make maths enjoyable and accessible for you and your pupils.
From 'maths is always right or wrong' to 'everyone has a mathematical ceiling', Dr Alf Coles and Dr Nathalie Sinclair explain why these common dogmas inhibit learners and contribute to the maths anxiety that many children and even teachers face. Packed full of activities, techniques and concrete strategies, as well as real-life case studies and easy-to-digest theory, this is the perfect book for primary teachers looking to reignite mathematics in their classroom and improve learning for all pupils.
