Description - Supporting Mathematical Thinking by Anne Watson

To what extent do curriculum subjects, particularly highly abstract ones such as Mathematics, have their own unique special needs? This book celebrates the work done by subject specialists in mainstream classrooms to promote inclusive practice. It describes new and creative ways of developing mathematical thinking among pupils. Each chapter demonstrates reflective minds at work, close observation of learners, willingness to understand the students' thinking process and patient commitment to students over long periods of time. Features of the book include: * how low-attaining students can think mathematically * numeracy recovery * task refusal in primary mathematics * progression in written calculation strategies for division * using graphic calculators with low-attaining pupils * generalising arithmetic: an alternative to algebra * learning support assistants in mathematics lessons * inclusion and entitlement, equality of opportunity and quality of curriculum provision.
