Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by salsouthernsoftie, Aug 23, 2011.

  1. I have been advised to purchase and read the fourth edition of Mathematics Explained for Primary Teachers Dr Derek Haylock. I have been given for free the third edition and was wondering what the differences are. I do not want to spend money unnecessarily.

    Any advice or knowledge would be very much appreciated.
    Thank you

    With most maths books, the main difference between one edition and the next - unless there is a major change in syllabus content - is a reduction in the number of typos and incorrect solutions.
    I would very much doubt that there would be a great difference between the two editions.
  3. As the proud borrower of both editions I would say def get the 4th ed

    This is what the publisher says about the differences
    Some of the changes in the new edition include:

    • Two new chapters on mathematics in the primary curriculum and learning to learn mathematics

    • More prominence given to using and applying mathematics

    • Sections matching the attainment targets for mathematics

    • More learning and teaching points highlighted throughout the text

    • Further material on number, risk, use of ICT, graphs and data-handling.

    • A research focus in every chapter.

    The companion website (www.sagepub.co.uk/haylock) provides a glossary
    and additional material to enable primary trainees to prepare with
    confidence for the ITT Numeracy test, and provides details of how each
    chapter of the book is linked to the National Curriculum. This will be
    updated to reflect any updates to the National Curriculum as they are
