The Mathematics Curriculum: Number
This Mathematics Curriculum book was first published in 1978 in a response to the many changes in the mathematics curriculum and resources available. It was intended to help teachers make sense of the changes and choose appropriate resources. The book provides a historical context for mathematics education at the time as it reviews the resources and books available to teachers.
It discusses the place of arithmetic in contemporary school mathematics as three principal headings under which to organise the teaching:
(a) the study of reckoning, (b) the study of number, and (c) the study of method (algebra).
Methods of teaching and engaging students are also covered, which are relevant today even if many of the materials and resources used are out of date.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
