Key Ideas in Teaching Mathematics

21 February 2013

A new book published today sheds light on teaching key ideas in mathematics to 9- to 19-year-olds.

Based on a research synthesis funded by the Nuffield Foundation, Key Ideas in Teaching Mathematics shows how students learn, why they sometimes get things wrong, and the strengths and pitfalls of various teaching approaches.

The book provides QR codes and URLs to connect readers to a website that brings together relevant classroom activities. The website, developed and hosted by the Foundation, also serves as a standalone resource for teachers looking to find online activities and guidance for their mathematics lessons.

Key Ideas in Teaching Mathematics was written by Anne Watson (University of Oxford), Keith Jones (University of Southampton) and Dave Pratt (Institute of Education). The publisher is Oxford University Press.
