In this fascinating book, Jenny Houssart draws on close observations with children in lower mathematics sets in primary schools to investigate why some children opt out of mathematics at an early age. After introducing us to the children, she addresses a particular type of mathematical task in each chapter, including: mental work practical work written work calculators and computers assessment tasks. Through the use of stories and quotes, the author shows how the children respond to specific tasks and presents evidence of a range of difficulties that emerge as the children are working. Each chapter ends with discussions and implications for classroom practice. Low Attainers in Primary Mathematics will be a useful resource for primary teachers, student teachers, SENCOs and teaching assistants who will all recognise these children from their own classrooms and draw insights from this highly readable book.

Low Attainers in Primary Mathematics focuses on data from students in Singapore schools. It is widely acknowledged that students from Singapore do well in mathematics in international studies. This book provides readers with a glimpse of students from Singapore who are at the other end of the ability spectrum. The book is based on a study that explored the mathematics content knowledge of Primary 4 low attainers in mathematics, their behaviours, affects and home backgrounds, and learning experiences. Based on the findings of the study, the book has recommendations for teachers of low attainers in primary mathematics. This book serves as a must-have resource for teachers and graduate students in Singapore who are working with or studying low attainers in primary mathematics. It also makes a worthy contribution towards literature on low attainers in the field of mathematics education.

The Initial Teacher Training National Curriculum says that student teachers should be trained to analyse pupil's errors in maths and act accordingly. This is the only book that supports teachers' analysis of mathematical errors and helps them predict potential problems and propose solutions for themselves. Written in an accessible style, Teaching Mathematics with Insight guides the primary and early years teacher, and the student teacher through a series of processes that will enable them to become more effective and enlightened teachers of early mathematics. The processes include: unravelling the complexities of a concept, for example subtraction, by considering its component parts and the knowledge required to acquire understanding; watching children work to observe common mistakes and analyse the underlying misconceptions; discussing the concepts with other adults.

"Fact fluency matters, but timed tests give students more anxiety than they develop students' mathematical fluency. It's time for educators to give timed tests a time out. But, what's the alternative? This book is designed to answer that question. It provides teachers with a wealth of practical ways to teach students the facts, help them understand the facts, and give them strategies to become fluent with their grade level's fact fluency expectations. Time's Up on Timed Tests builds real fact fluency--without a timer! The book covers fluency in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, with practical strategies for purposeful practice, including reproducibles of games and activities. "

More than ever, students need to engage with mathematical concepts, think quantitatively and analytically, and communicate using mathematics. All these skills are central to a young person’s preparedness to tackle problems that arise at work and in life beyond the classroom. But the reality is that many students are not familiar with basic mathematics concepts and, at school, only practice routine tasks that do not improve their ability to think quantitatively and solve real-life, complex problems. How can we break this pattern? This report, based on results from PISA 2012, shows that one way forward is to ensure that all students spend more “engaged” time learning core mathematics concepts and solving challenging mathematics tasks. The opportunity to learn mathematics content – the time students spend learning mathematics topics and practising maths tasks at school – can accurately predict mathematics literacy. Differences in students’ familiarity with mathematics concepts explain a substantial share of performance disparities in PISA between socio-economically advantaged and disadvantaged students. Widening access to mathematics content can raise average levels of achievement and, at the same time, reduce inequalities in education and in society at large.
