Did you know that a circle has more than one side? Are you aware of the difference between 1:2 and 1/2? Could you spot when a 2D shape is actually 3D? Tackling Misconceptions in Primary Mathematics is a practical guide based on the principles that sound subject knowledge is key to fostering understanding, and addressing misconceptions is central to pupil progress. With an emphasis on preventing as well as unpicking misconceptions in the classroom, it offers trainee and practising teachers clear explanations, practical strategies, and examples of the classroom language and dialogue that will help pupils successfully navigate tricky topics. The book demonstrates the importance of preventing misconceptions through what is said, done and presented to children, giving a variety of examples of common misconceptions and exploring how they can be addressed in a classroom environment. Proper intervention at the point of misconception is regarded as a key skill for any outstanding classroom practitioner and the author stresses the value in understanding how the pupil got there and explaining that it s okay to make mistakes. Misconceptions are only one step away from correctly formed concepts if harnessed with care and skill. This comprehensive text is designed to be read as either a short course introduction, or dipped into as a guide to assist teaching. It is essential reading for trainee primary school teachers on all routes to QTS, as well as mathematics subject leaders and practising teachers looking to inspire the next generation of confident and inquisitive mathematicians.

Mastery in Primary Mathematics contains clear, practical guidance for both teachers and leaders on how to implement a mastery approach in the classroom that transcends any particular context, school type or scheme currently being used. Filled with research-based evidence, case studies and concrete examples of teaching for mastery used successfully, this is the ideal toolkit to implementing a mastery approach across a school, regardless of expertise. Moulding pupils into confident and successful mathematicians is one of the most important jobs of a primary school. It can also be one of the most difficult. Teaching for mastery gives pupils the best possible understanding of mathematics and implementing it involves a two-pronged approach: mastery must be embedded in the classroom, but will only work with the full support of the school's leadership team. Based on educational research and school case studies, Mastery in Primary Mathematics gives practical advice on introducing and sustaining teaching for mastery, with sections for both class teachers and school leaders. In this must-have guide, Tom Garry, NCETM Maths Mastery Specialist Teacher, covers the areas of variation theory, mathematical reasoning and the use of correct mathematical language, and equips leaders with the necessary tools to make the mastery approach work across a school. With a view to planning at three levels – curricular, unit and lesson – in order to fully arm educators with the means to plan effectively, Tom draws on cognitive science as current developments in this field are crucial to understanding how children learn.

If the last decade focused on what works, the decade ahead must focus on what matters. In his second book, Tierney argues that the purpose of education must move to the heart of the educational debate. Purpose will significantly influence what schools and the education system as a whole will do next. Why we educate is a question from which all other aspects evolve. A question for all times, it will resonate with those who have experienced the Great Pause. Using four main philosophies of education - personal empowerment, cultural transmission, preparation for work and preparation for citizenship - he provides the underpinning theory and seminal works alongside a powerful critique. Using the impact of these different philosophies on a school's curriculum he challenges the current orthodoxy, allowing the reader to consider alternative views and approaches. Proposing that the telos of education must be a life well lived, he argues for a re-purposing of education, with a preferential option for the poor at its heart. Educative and challenging this will be read by all those interested and involved in education.
