Über diesen Titel


This is a fully revised and updated edition of the authors' successful and much-used book, Understanding Mathematics in the Lower Primary Years: A Guide for Teachers of Children 3 - 8.

It is written for those who teach mathematics, for those who are preparing to teach mathematics to children aged 3 to 8 years, as well as for those who wish to have a clearer understanding of the mathematical ideas behind the material they use in the classroom. This book also shows how children can be helped to develop an understanding of mathematics for themselves.

The revisions introduced in the third Edition reflect recent changes such as the Early Learning Goals for the Foundation Stage and the particular emphasis of The National Numeracy Strategy. Sections on addition and subtraction, multiplication and division have been revised, and the book includes coverage of mental calculation strategies.

This is an essential student text and professional reference work for teachers of children aged 3 to 8 years.

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
