' I purchased a copy of your book over the holidays-it is my bebtime reading at the moment but it is far too stimulating'- Philippa Cook, Nursery Teacher, Clifton High School, Bristol 'Children's Mathematics: Making Marks, Making Meaning is essential reading for students of Education and Early Childhood Studies, as well as for those practitioners working in the Foundation and Primary stages of education' - Anne Cooper, Mathematics Association 'Thought-provoking and inspirational throughout. If you want to expand your understanding upwards and outwards then get a copy soon' - John Dabell, Education Consultant, Former Numeracy Consultant & Ofsted Inspector Praise for the First Edition: 'Children's Mathematics: Making Marks, Making Meaning is essential reading for students of Education and Early Childhood Studies, as well as for those practitioners working in the Foundation and Primary stages of education' - Anne Cooper, Mathematics Association 'The writers make a very convincing case for the usefulness of exploring children's marks in order to understand their mathematical cognition. The examples of children's written representations provide fascinating insights into how different children think about mathematics' - Katherine Canobi, University of Melbourne
