Part of the best-selling Maths Recovery series, this practical, step-by-step guide to classroom instruction takes an inquiry-based approach to assess children′s knowledge and build on this to develop a firm foundation of understanding and confidence in mathematics. Topics covered range from beginning number and early counting strategies to multi-digit addition and subtraction right through to multiplication and division.

    An invaluable resource for use on pre-service teacher training courses and for all primary classroom teachers and assistants, including experienced Mathematics Recovery instructors, as well as learning support personnel, primary mathematics advisors, numeracy consultants and educational psychologists. 


    • Downloadable extra chapter resources like  print-out grids, worksheets, cards and much more
    • A Facilitator's Guide that can be used either individually or in group study to help you get the most out of the material

    Research informs practice in this easy to access resource. Each chapter gives educators  practical, bite-sized assessments, linked to a host of activities that helps them target teaching and develop the firm foundations which are so vital for confident and competent mathematicians.  Jill Piotrowski, Numeracy Consultant, Wigan Local Authority, UK

    ′The Classroom Instructional Framework in Early Number is research-based and provides a roadmap of not only the what, but the when and the how to teach all aspects of early number. - Vicki Nally, Mathematics Consultant at Catholic Education Office, Melbourne

    The structured approach offers a wealth of rich and easily implemented classroom-based activities that work - thousands of teachers in Ireland attest to this! Noreen O′Loughlin, Director Maths Recovery and Maths Education Lecturer, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, Ireland

    Dr Robert J. (Bob) Wright holds Bachelor's and Master's degrees in mathematics from the University of Queensland (Australia) and a doctoral degree in mathematics education from the University of Georgia. He is an adjunct professor in mathematics education at Southern Cross University in New South Wales. Bob is an inter-nationally recognized leader in assessment and instruction relating to children's early arithmetical knowledge and strategies, publishing six books, and many articles and papers in this field. His work over the last 25 years has included the development of the Mathematics Recovery Program, which focuses on providing specialist training for teachers to advance the numeracy levels of young children assessed as low-attainers. In Australia and New Zealand, Ireland, the UK, the USA, Canada, Mexico, South Africa and elsewhere, this programme has been implemented widely, and applied extensively to classroom teaching and to average and able learners as well as low-attainers. Bob has conducted several research projects funded by the Australian Research Council including the most recent project focusing on assessment and intervention in the early arithmetical learning of low-attaining 8- to 10-year-olds.
