Primary Mathematics: Integrating Theory with Practice provides a comprehensive introduction to teaching and learning mathematics in today's classrooms. Closely aligned with the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics, this text covers the core learning areas of measurement, space and geometry, early number concepts, data and statistics, chance and probability, and patterns and algebra. The text also addresses key considerations for teachers, such as planning, assessment, differentiation and teaching outside traditional contexts. The third edition has been thoroughly revised and features three new chapters focusing on the General Capabilities and Cross-Curricular Priorities, implementing STEM strategies in the primary setting, and the transition to practice. Each chapter highlights how the theory of teaching mathematics can be put into practice effectively and includes new guided reflective questions and student tasks. Written by an expert author team, Primary Mathematics remains an essential resource that will prepare and excite pre-service teachers for their future as mathematics educators.
