520    "What is good mathematics teaching? What is mathematics 
       teaching good for? Who is mathematics teaching for? These 
       are just some of the questions addressed in Transforming 
       Primary Mathematics, a highly timely new resource for 
       teachers which accessibly sets out the key theories and 
       latest research in primary maths today. Under-pinned by 
       findings from the largest research programme into primary 
       mathematics funded in recent years, it offers a clear, 
       practical approach to implementing fundamental change in 
       curriculum, classroom environment and teaching styles. 
       Written by one of the top experts in mathematics education,
       it offers an inspiring, sometimes controversial, and often
       unconventional look at the subject of mathematics, by: - 
       Endorsing the use of a 'new mathematics' - one based on 
       problem solving, modelling and inquiry, not on abstract 
       rules, memorising, and regurgitation - Arguing that there 
       is more to maths teaching than 'death by a thousand 
       worksheets' - Challenging norms, such as the practice of 
       sorting children into sets based on their perceived 
       mathematical ability - Asking whether this mathematical 
       ability is innate or a result of social practices - 
       Upholding the idea that mathematics teaching is an 
       adaptive challenge, rather than a technical problem - 
       Advocating an environment where teachers are encouraged to
       take risks - Looking at how best to prepare learners for 
       an unknown future - Encouraging reflection on teachers' 
       own beliefs and values about mathematics. Transforming 
       Primary Mathematics is for all primary school teachers who
       want to make mathematics welcoming, engaging, inclusive 
       and successful"--
