Description 

This is for No. 7 of the series: Understanding Number Development and Difficulties

Edited by Richard Cowan, Matthew Saxton and Andrew Tolmie

Proficiency with numbers is important for everyday life, employment, and the study of natural and social sciences. Understanding what promotes number development and why children differ are important for achieving national goals for primary education and because difficulties at primary school predict difficulties in adulthood. Differences between children in their mathematical attainment are not decreasing and some evidence suggests they are increasing. Understanding this diversity involves considerations of the roles of the environment, general cognitive factors and specific number skills.

This monograph features contributions from eminent developmental psychologists who have been concerned to make connections between developmental psycholgy and the theory and practice of education, particularly in mathematics. Their research is advancing understanding of the factors responsible for diversity in children's mathematical attainment and interventions that are effective in supporting mathematical development.

No 9: Psychology and antisocial behaviour in schools
Edited by Pam Maras, Jim Demetre, Amy Moon and Andrew Tolmie
Whilst antisocial behaviour in schools is a topic of major international concern, there is a surprising dearth of work focused on psychological explanations for its occurrence, or on interventions founded on such explanations. This monograph is intended to address this deficit.

No 10: Self-regulation and dialogue in primary classrooms
Edited by David Whitebread, Neil Mercer, Christine Howe and Andrew Tolmie
This monograph aims to bring together two important current lines of research investigating the processes of teaching and learning in Primary classrooms: how adults help children develop new ways of thinking and learning, and the role of spoken dialogue between adults and children in learning and development.
