This best-selling text has been fully updated to include developments and refinements brought about by widespread international application of the assessment tools in the acclaimed Mathematics Recovery Program. This revised version of Early Numeracy: Assessment for Teaching and Intervention helps teachers identify children's difficulties and misconceptions, and become more skilled and confident in planning programs for intervention and monitoring children's progress.

This new edition includes:

  • Integrated frameworks of tasks for assessing children's knowledge and strategies
  • Four separate and revised diagnostic assessment interviews
  • Assessments for addition and subtraction strategies, base ten arithmetical strategies, early grouping strategies, and advanced grouping strategies

Dr Robert J. (Bob) Wright holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in mathematics from the University of Queensland (Australia) and a doctoral degree in mathematics education from the University of Georgia. He is an adjunct professor in mathematics education at Southern Cross University in New South Wales. Bob is an inter­nationally recognized leader in assessment and instruction relating to children’s early arithmetical knowledge and strategies, publishing six books, and many articles and papers in this field. His work over the last 25 years has included the development of the Mathematics Recovery Program, which focuses on providing specialist training for teachers to advance the numeracy levels of young children assessed as low-attainers. In Australia and New Zealand, Ireland, the UK, the USA, Canada, Mexico, South Africa and elsewhere, this programme has been implemented widely, and applied extensively to classroom teaching and to average and able learners as well as low-attainers. Bob has conducted several research projects funded by the Australian Research Council including the most recent project focusing on assessment and intervention in the early arithmetical learning of low-attaining 8- to 10-year-olds.
