The Clemsons' clear and readable book takes the reader from debates about how children learn and what children know and can do when they start school, through to a discussion of how mathematics can be managed in school and classroom, and how it can be assessed and evaluated. Linking these two parts of the book is a section on the subject of mathematics itself, from which the non-specialist reader can gain a view of what mathematics is, what needs to be thought about in planning and offering a curriculum and the special dilemmas faced in teaching and offering mathematics as a subject. A bank of case studies offers an opportunity to see mathematics in action in a variety of classrooms, and a final chapter makes suggestions for stimulating in-service training.
