demonstrates how SOLO Taxonomy can be used easily and effectively to help students think mathematically
details reliable classroom-based strategies that move students through progressively more complex levels of understanding
is founded firmly in practice, with examples drawn from teachers and students who have used and gained from SOLO in the mathematics classroom
includes SOLO maps and self assessment rubrics to scaffold learning and make success criteria clearly visible.
In view of the research indicating that approaches to teaching mathematics vary in their effectiveness, choosing the appropriate pedagogy is critical to students' mastery of essential skills and ability to apply them.
Looking through the lens of SOLO, mathematics educators and students can focus firmly on the complexity of the learning outcome - differentiating surface, deep and conceptual levels of understanding.
This knowledge then helps to identify explicit next steps and to prompt for understanding.
