* Why do some students achieve more than others? * Do we have to wait until pupils are ready ? * Can children discover math for themselves? * Does language interfere with the learning of math? This classic text, written from the viewpoint of the math teacher, provides answers to these and many more questions. Each chapter explores a particular issue that illustrates the interaction between theory and practice. New chapters have been included on cognition, pattern, and ICT.
