Being always strongly grounded in the classroom, it develops in a non-intimidating way teachers' own understanding of the mathematics they are teaching. Many insightful examples of children's thinking and appropriate activities help to illustrate the points. This is an essential book for teachers of Early Years and Key Stage 1' - Margaret Brown, Professor of Mathematics Education, King's College London, UK

They also show how children can be helped to develop an understanding of mathematics for themselves, rather than just learning recipes and routines with little meaning.
Major themes are:
- Understanding through making connections
- Equivalence and transformation
- Using and applying mathematics
