Engaging in Mathematics in the Classroom: Symbols and experiences  By Alf Coles

What comes first, class management or student engagement? How can the ‘real world’ be used to engage learners? What is the role of technology in engaging students? And is ‘understanding’ or ‘exam success’ more engaging?

In the modern world, success in school mathematics can determine life chances. It is therefore vital to engage children and young people in learning mathematics.

Engaging in Mathematics in the Classroom brings together the debates concerning mathematical engagement and draws on first-hand experience and key research to promote successful classroom practice. It considers what engagement looks like at different ages and the implications of this for the classroom.

This timely text will be essential reading for all trainee and practising teachers of mathematics.

All welcome

Following a reading from the book by the author there will be a wine reception. Discounted copies of the book will be available for sale.
