March 2023 | 184 pages | Corwin UK
This book expands upon the guiding principles at the heart of Math Recovery® instruction, exploring their connections with learning theory, practical application in the classroom and their wider links to agreed concepts of high-quality mathematics teaching.

It provides a well-rounded overview of all major aspects of mathematics teaching including inquiry-based and constructivist approaches, planning and assessment, and strategies that offer children opportunities for reflection, satisfaction and increasing challenge.

Particular focus is placed on equitable and inclusive practices in mathematics and how we can develop teaching that connects with the abilities, cultures, and lived experiences of all children.

This is essential reading for all teachers familiar with the Math Recovery® approach and classroom mathematics teachers in elementary and primary schools everywhere seeking to enhance their own professional knowledge and understanding.
