Ineson, Gwen – Perspectives in Education, 2008
The mathematics curriculum in the United Kingdom (UK) has undergone radical changes, placing a particular focus on mental computation. Pupils are not taught written methods of computation until they are able to add and subtract any pair of two digit numbers mentally. Teacher education programmes in the UK have required adaptation to reflect these…

Rowlands, Stuart – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2008
Mechanics has never been the most popular subject in A-level mathematics, the UK's public examination for 16-18-year olds, either with students, teachers or educators. The attempts to popularize mechanics have failed and it is conceivable that the subject will be dropped from the A-level syllabus in the foreseeable future. This article argues the…

Iannone, Paola; Nardi, Elena – Journal of Mathematical Behavior, 2005
In this paper, we draw on a 16-month study funded by the Learning and Teaching Support Network in the UK and entitled "Mathematicians as Educational Co-Researchers." The study's aims were two-fold. Primarily we intended to explore mathematicians' reflections on issues identified in the literature as highly topical in the area of teaching…

English, Lyn D.; Humble, Steve; Barnes, Victoria E. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
A recent study in the United Kingdom provides strong evidence that well-organized activities outside the classroom contribute significantly to the quality and depth of children's learning, including their personal, social, and emotional development. Outdoor math trails supply further evidence of such enhanced learning. This article focuses on the…

Teasdale, Rebecca – Mathematics Teaching Incorporating Micromath, 2008
The new program of study for KS3 and the proposed changes in Y11 assessment for 2012 are now demanding teachers to focus again on the processes of learning. Teachers are being told they must "allow students to select the mathematics to use", "allow students to explore connected problems" and encourage them to work with real…

Steel, Wayne – Mathematics Teaching Incorporating Micromath, 2008
General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) mathematics assessment previously included a piece of coursework that required learners to develop a general equation to describe the relationship between two groups of numbers on a number grid. In this author's experience, it became clear that Year 10 students often struggled to form a link…
