Great introductory book for anyone looking at Mastery
This is an important book because moving to mastery approaches to mathematics is a government policy in England and yet is contested and complex. This book provides a useful range of perspectives on aspects of mastery as a concept and as an approach within the context of teaching mathematics. The editors and authors are almost entirely working as university based teacher educators and this perhaps does limit the perspectives represented to some extent but offers a useful resistance and critique of some of the myths of mastery.
A well-structured and comprehensive overview of the aspects and issues of teaching for mastery. Very useful for the specialist maths pathways for our BA students.
