    The Authors

    Dr Derek Haylock is an education consultant and author, working particularly in the field of mathematics education. He is a Senior Fellow in Education at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, where he taught for over 20 years, undertook research in mathematics education and headed up the primary initial teacher training. He has had published a number of single-authored, co-authored and edited books, and chapters in books. His book Mathematics Explained for Primary Teachers has been a leader in the field for many years, with a third edition published in 2006.

    Dr Fiona Thangata is a Lecturer in Mathematics Education at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, where she teaches on the primary Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE). She has contributed a number of articles to journals and chapters in books. She has worked in England, Scotland, Namibia and the USA as a classroom teacher, curriculum developer, in-service provider and teacher trainer.
