¿This book is about how teachers can use classroom mathematics tasks to support
student learning, and presents data on the ways in which teachers used those
tasks in a particular research project. It is the product of research findings
focusing on teacher practice, teacher learning and knowledge, and student
learning. It demonstrates how teachers can use mathematics tasks to promote
effective student learning.¿
Provides a guide to the effective classroom use of tasks through elaborating appropriate pedagogies Illustrates effective use of tasks by providing examples of lessons that have been trialled, observed and analysed Uniquely presents student responses to tasks and lessons mathematical pedagogy
