'Unlike many books based on research work this book doesn't just let teachers know what is going wrong with children's learning it actually gives some practical advice about what to do next. The whole book is based upon extensive observation and recording of individual children and their difficulties with mathematics. These children are the most difficult to plan for in a busy classroom and the authors appreciate the small steps and the different learning styles approaches needed for these children. This approach fits well with the NNS wave and springboard materials but takes the analysis of the individual's difficulties to a more detailed level. The book brings together research carried out across a range of countries and therefore shows the versatility of the approaches taken. This will be a very useful book for trainee teachers as it exemplifies how to use assessment to feed into teaching. It will be helpful for class teachers and mathematics co-ordinators as well as SENCOs to assist in improving the teaching and learning for specific children in our schools' - Mary Briggs, Primary and Early Years PGCE Co-ordinator, Institute of Education, University of Warwick 'This is a highly practical resource that will be appreciated by classroom and specialist teachers alike. It will provide teachers new to the Math Recovery program with practical help and support to diagnose errors and misconceptions in early numeracy. Practicing Math Recovery Specialists will be thrilled with the addition of four new highly focused assessments and an elaboration of the Learning Framework in Number. Early Numeracy is admirably grounded in international research and well-established theory, characteristics that are much sought after in the current data driven educational environment. Like many others, I was drawn to Math Recovery after reading the first edition of Early Numeracy. This second edition is a treasure - it is exciting to consider the impact it will have on children and teachers, and to the growth of the Math Recovery program' - Audrey Murray, Lead Teacher, Midwest Math Recovery Training Center, Minneapolis This text has been fully updated to include developments and refinements brought about by widespread international application of the assessment tools in the Mathematics Recovery Programme. The book will help practitioners to identify and provide detailed analyses of all children but especially those who are able and those who underachieve in early numeracy. It will enable teachers, learning support personnel, numeracy consultants and educational psychologists to advise colleagues and parents on children's number knowledge and strategies for early numeracy. The Mathematics Recovery Programme has been successfully applied in Australia, the United Kingdom and Ireland, the United States and Canada, both in specialist interventions and classroom settings. The revised version shows how familiarisation with, and understanding of, the diagnostic assessment tools has allowed teachers to become more knowledgeable in understanding children's difficulties and misconceptions, and more skilled and confident in planning programmes of intervention and monitoring the children's progress. This new edition includes: - Integrated frameworks of useful tasks for assessing children's number knowledge and strategies; - Four separate and revised diagnostic assessment interviews; - Assessments for addition and subtraction strategies, Base Ten Arithmetical strategies, Early Grouping strategies, and Advanced Grouping strategies in the four operations; - How the assessment process has impacted significantly on teachers' professional development and contributed to the raising of standards in early numeracy.

The book lets teachers identify where their students are in terms of number skills, and sets out a strategy for developing their knowledge. The authors show how to advance children's learning across five stages of early arithmetical learning - emergent, perceptual, figurative, initial number, and facile number. This provides for increasingly sophisticated number strategies across addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, as well as developing children's number word and numeral knowledge, and their ability to structure number and have grouping strategies. The approach used nine guiding principles for teaching. Each chapter has clearly defined teaching procedures which show how to take the children onto the next more sophisticated stage. The teaching procedures are organized into key teaching topics, and each includes: o a clearly defined purpose o detailed instructions, activities, learning tasks and reinforcing games o lists of responses which children may make o application in whole class, small group and individualised settings o a link to the Learning Framework in Number (see Early Numeracy- second edition, 2005) o how the guiding principles for teaching can be used to allow teachers to evaluate and reflect upon their practice Primary practitioners in Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada have tested the teaching procedures which can be used in conjunction with each country's numeracy strategy. Primary teachers, especially of the early years, mathematics co-ordinators, heads of school, mathematics advisers, special educationalists, learning support personnel, teacher assistants, lecturers in initial teacher training and educational psychologists will all find this book invaluable.

This book is borne out of a collaborative research project (2004-8) between Math Recovery and CEM (Catholic Education Melbourne) funded by the Australian Research Council focusing on intervention in the number learning of low-attaining students in the first five years of school. This has involved developing new pedagogical tools (PTs) for assessment, instruction and intervention including a coherent, research-based framework for understanding the key aspects of students’ developing number knowledge. It also offers guidance on innovative video-based assessment and an overview of principles of intervention instruction. This book will be a useful guide for all primary and elementary school classroom teachers and assistants, and specialist teachers, including experienced Mathematics Recovery instructors. It will also be of significant interest to teacher educators and researchers.

Ein zentraler Aspekt von Toughs Untersuchung sind die Zukunftschancen von Kindern aus der unteren Skala der Gesellschaft. Wenn wir die richtigen Eigenschaften fördern, kann die soziale Schere geschlossen werden. Psychologen, Neurowissenschaftler und Ökonomen, die sich mit der Frage von Erfolg und Persönlichkeit beschäftigen, belegen: Charaktereigenschaften wie Ausdauer, Optimismus, Neugier, Mut und Gewissenhaftigkeit sind ausschlaggebend für späteren Erfolg. Aber wie kann man diese Eigenschaften fördern? Und warum sind sie so sichere Vorhersagemerkmale? Tough zeigt am Beispiel einer Brennpunktschule, wie die Förderung benachteiligter Schüler gelingt. Dieses kluge und provokante Buch wird den Leser fesseln – und es wird unser Verständnis von Kindheit, Schule und Ausbildung verändern.

Excerpt from Genie und Vererbung Die Bucherei hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, einerseits dem deutschen Publikum die Hauptwerke der auslandischen Philosophie und Soziologie in guten Ubersetzungen nahezubringen, andererseits auch wertvolle deutsche Originalarbeiten in ihren Rahmen aufzunehmen. Wie ihr Erscheinen von den Fachgenossen aufgenommen wurde, zeigt eine Zuschirift Rudolf Euckens der dem Verleger folgendermassen schreibt: "Ich wunsche von Herzen Gluck zu den bedeutenden wissenschaftlichen Unternehmungen, die sie beginnen. Ich glaube, dass hier in Wahrheit eine Lucke besteht, welche dringend der Ausfullung bedarf: wir Deutschen haben zu wenig Beziehung zu den inneren geistigen Bewegungen der anderen Kulturvolker, und wir konnten daraus doch manches gewinnen." Es sollen ausser deutschen Philosophen zunachst die bedeutendsten Vertreter der auslandischen Philosophie mit charakteristischen Werken zu Worte kommen, daneben wird Ruck sieht darauf genommen, dass nicht nur fur den Fachmann interessante Werke zur Verdeutschung kommen, sondern auch solche, die fur ein grosseres philosophisch und soziologisch interessiertes Publikum Wert haben. Die beste Auskunft uber Plan und Ab sichten des Unternehmens gibt ein Blick auf die Titel der schon erschienenen und vorbereiteten Bande. Ein ausfuhrlicher Spezialprospekt uber die Gebiete Philosophie-Soziologie steht jederzeit umsonst zu Diensten.
