The author, an internationally recognised authority, provides teachers with a clear explanation of these principles, and explains the relation between understanding and skills, and describes their application to the teaching of mathematics. The book contains numerous activities to show how mathematics can be learnt in the primary classroom with understanding and enjoyment, including:

* formation of mathematical concepts

* construction of knowledge

* contents and structure of primary mathematics
