Informed by seminal and current research, and recent developments in education policy, the book also explores:
- the role of mathematics within the primary curriculum
- the development of mathematics as a subject of study
- the knowledge that can be gained from considering international approaches to mathematics.
This is essential reading for all students on primary initial teacher education courses including undergraduate (BEd, BA with QTS), postgraduate (PGCE, SCITT), and School Direct, and employment-based routes into teaching.
