Abstract

This article reports on a joint three year project between Haringey LA and NRICH, which aimed to develop reasoning and creativity in the learning of mathematics. During the first year project, working with with two teachers from each of 11 primary schools, several themes emerged, both in terms of classroom practice and professional development. These were:

Classroom culture;
Mathematical games;
teachers' own mathematics;
Collaborative professional development.

The article discusses these key issues by sharing some of the participating teachers' comments and insights.
