Book Description

This stimulating text shows how primary mathematics can be creative, exciting and enjoyable. Offering teachers a dynamic and different perspective, it enables them to see and teach in creative ways that will develop their pupil’s mathematical thinking potential.

Creative Teaching: Mathematics in the Primary Classroom encourages students, trainees and practicing teachers to envision and develop a classroom where children can take risks, enjoy and experiment with mathematical thinking, and discover and pursue their interests and talents in an imaginative yet purposeful way. This second edition contains key updates to reflect the changes to the primary curriculum and includes:

    • new sections on: specialist teaching, parental engagement and approaches to homework;
    • creative classroom environments;
    • working walls, displays and outdoor settings;
    • links to assessment, speaking, listening and learning theory;
    • use of media, film, news and stories for creative learning;
    • cross-curricula work.

Featuring reflective tasks in every chapter, this book will prove essential and inspiring reading for all trainee and practising teachers looking to develop their creative practice.

Aimed at primary and early years trainee teachers, NQTs and experienced teachers, this is a timely publication for teachers and schools seeking to broaden their maths curriculum, making it more creative and appealing to young minds.
