This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of teaching mathematics at secondary school level.It features a dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to targeted education related media & organisations.During the past 15-20 years, educational policymakers the world over have been calling for significant changes to the way mathematics is taught is secondary schools. They want teaching to go beyond the traditional emphasis on facts, skills and formulae to include mathematical reasoning, problem solving and real world applications.

Teaching Secondary Mathematics incorporates recent developments in research, practice and applications to show that, if learners are to develop mathematically powerful forms of thinking and habits, teachers need to immerse them in the authentic practices of the discipline by supporting a culture of collaboration. Filled with tried-and-tested examples, and thoroughly illustrated throughout, this excellent volume will become an invaluable resource for teachers everywhere.
