#### How I wish I'd Taught Maths

This is the story of an experienced and successful maths teacher’s journey into the world of research, and what it looks like in the classroom. Along the way we meet practical, easy-to-implement strategies including Supercharged Worked Examples, Silent Teacher, SSDD problems, low-stakes quizzes, diagnostic questions, Purposeful Practice, self-explanations, harnessing the power of the hypercorrection effect, how to (and how not to) teach problem-solving and much more. No matter your experience, teaching style or favourite number, every maths teacher will find something to think about in this book.

#### Elephant in the Maths Classroom

This offers concrete suggestions on ways to teach maths well, and ways to help children in the home, that will offer new and more effective ways of learning maths. The book offers an exciting way forward, a new approach to teaching maths that excites and motivates children, teaching them to reason and problem solve, that can help children, even those who think that they are maths failures and that they could never enjoy maths. ISBN-10: 0285638475, ISBN-13: 978-0285638471

#### Reflect, Expect, Check, Explain

This is Craig Barton's second book where he offers an approach to help all our students think mathematically. It requires the careful sequencing of questions and examples, the role of the teacher, and the mathematical behaviour of our students. It has transformed his teaching. Drawing upon research into the Self-Explanation Effect, the Hypercorrection Effect and Variation Theory, together with two years of developing this approach with teachers and students around the world, Craig describes exactly what this looks like in the classroom.
