May 2019 | 248 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This book explores how mathematical mastery, influenced by East Asian teaching approaches, can be developed in a UK context to enhance teaching and to deepen children's mathematical knowledge. It gives guidance on using physical resources to demonstrate key concepts, extended examples on how to teach different curriculum topics and how to plan for small-step progression.

Key coverage includes:

- Key terminology in mastery-style teaching
- The challenges in implementing a mastery approach
- The use of manipulative resources for deeper understanding
- An analysis of mastery and related schemes of work currently available
- Assessing mastery
- How to apply mastery concepts in the early years
Chapter 1: The context for mathematics teaching
Chapter 2: What is mastery teaching at primary level?
Chapter 3: Key terms and features of mastery teaching
Chapter 4: Manipulatives: their purpose and use in a mastery approach to teaching
Chapter 5: Planning for small-step progression
Chapter 6: Mastery in the UK
Chapter 7: Teaching for mastery
Chapter 8: Planning and schemes of work
