In this fascinating book, Jenny Houssart draws on close
observations with children in lower mathematics sets in primary
schools to investigate why some children opt out of mathematics at
an early age. After introducing us to the children, she addresses a
particular type of mathematical task in each chapter,
- mental work
- practical work
- written work
- calculators and computers
- assessment tasks.
Through the use of stories and quotes, the author shows how the
children respond to specific tasks and presents evidence of a range
of difficulties that emerge as the children are working. Each
chapter ends with discussions and implications for classroom
Low Attainers in Primary Mathematics will be a useful resource
for primary teachers, student teachers, SENCOs and teaching
assistants who will all recognise these children from their own
classrooms and draw insights from this highly readable book.
