- DescriptionLightbulb moments for teachers and pupils This book explores the 'big ideas' in maths to help teachers confidently teach the curriculum in a way that engages children and focuses on understanding, rather than memory, for those lightbulb moments. Covering the major concepts in simple terms, whilst carefully linking to the National Curriculum, it shows how they can be used to enable learning and support mathematical mastery. A focus on explaining misconceptions and errors strengthens trainee teacher's mathematical subject kwledge, while also giving them confidence to deepen their understanding of the children they teach. Key topics include: * Problem-solving, reasoning and developing fluency in maths * Place value and counting systems * Measuring money, time, and weight * Geometry, and understanding space and shape * Fractions and statistics for the primary classroom
- Author BiographyRobert Newell has worked at the Institute of Education for twelve years; full time for the last four. He works with Primary PGCE trainees and Teach First participants. His career started as a primary school teacher, taking responsibility in maths in several schools before progressing to two deputy head posts and then a headteacher role. Primary maths teaching, though, has been his biggest passion. He has worked as a numeracy consultant and also delivered a PGCE Maths programme to a London SCITT for three years. He is now part of a small maths team serving several hundred trainees at the IOE, now merged with UCL. He has two passions that underpin his work. One is ensuring that primary maths children are taught in a way that is engages them and focuses on understanding. The other is the belief that, in the main, it is only anxiety that stops more trainees feeling comfortable about teaching maths. Part of his working role at the IOE is linked to supporting trainees with less secure understanding and allowing them to see how much they can offer. Many realise that although anxiety has affected their self-perception about mathematical understanding, this process can be reversed. His dissertation focused on the different ways trainee teachers can learn to use different levels of understanding effectively in their primary school maths teaching. Here, he commits to print a range of ideas and activities, refined over many years and linked to ensuring all primary teachers can teach for understanding.
