it is very current in that it links mathematical learning and understanding to the mastery approach that we now use in schools and also Carol Dweck’s mindset work which is also currently a focus in schools.
Its main focus is what children (and teachers) can learn from the errors they make and it gives very clear examples of common mistakes made by children and what can be done to unpick their errors and move towards understanding of the concept.
An excellent supporting handbook, particularly useful for Teaching Assistants who often work with groups of children who may be struggling with certain concepts. Lots of useful and practical approaches for encouraging more independent learning whilst challenging and overcoming misconceptions in Maths. Not just for children's errors - useful for adults too.
This book was circulates among my mathematics education undergraduates as a resource book on errors and misconceptions
