Research on 'Problems of Practice' in Mathematics

I am attaching four research articles on a problem of practice identified by teachers in one school around the consistent use of mathematical language.

The following two articles are on teaching mathematics. One article is by Booker on thinking mathematical making sense of problem solving and the other lecture summary notes by Professor Swan on teaching methods. George Booker wrote a book titled "Teaching Primary Mathematics" which is considered a central resource book for all primary school teachers teaching mathematics.

Reports on the teaching of Mathematics

I have attached two reports from Ofsted [UK] to this research page on the teaching of mathematics. The primary report makes interesting reading and I think makes some points we could well take up in our work in the Beachside Network.
