Teaching Design and Technology in Secondary Schools begins by providing information on the nature, purpose and development of design and technology in schools. An aptitude for design and technology combines practical skills and theoretical knowledge, and the book addresses what this means in practice. Design and technology takes in work with such diversity as resistant materials, textiles, food and systems and control, so attention is given to connections between these areas and what makes them 'design and technology'. Together, these articles comprise a stimulating and comprehensive overview of the issues and ideas surrounding this new, popular and exciting element of the secondary school curriculum. This book is the companion to Aspects of Teaching Secondary Design and Technology.

If learners in the classroom are to be excited by mathematics, teachers need to be both well informed about current initiatives and able to see how what is expected of them can be translated into rich and stimulating classroom strategies. The book examines current initiatives that affect teaching mathematics and identifies pointers for action in the classroom. Divided into three major sections, it looks at: the changing mathematics classroom at primary, secondary and tertiary level major components of the secondary curriculum practical pedagogical issues of particular concern to mathematics teachers. Each issue is explores in terms of major underpinnings and research in that area, and practical ideas can be drawn from the text and implemented in the reader's classroom practice. Each chapter has been written by a well-respected writer, researcher and practitioner in their field and all share a common goal: to look thoughtfully and intelligently at some of the practical issues facing mathematics teachers and offer their perspectives on those issues.
