Covering all of the areas of the new Curriculum for primary mathematics and offering insight into effective teaching, this book helps students connect what they need to teach with how it can be taught. Exploring opportunities in the new curriculum for creative and imaginative teaching, it shows readers how to capitalize on opportunities to develop children's reasoning and problem solving skills. It explores how to make links between mathematics and children's lived experiences to enhance their learning and enables trainees to develop an ability to plan with discernment, making the most of existing thinking and research as well as building confidence in adapting and customizing ideas.
Includes the full National Curriculum Programme of Study for Maths, key stages 1 and 2 as a useful reference for trainee teachers.
Other books in this series include:
This is a very detailed text that offers the trainee teacher support with subject knowledge but some useful tips on starting points when teaching various mathematical concepts and suggestions of activities to offer the children. It does offer some ideas for AfL however not always the most ground-breaking. I do like how it offers excerpts of research that links to the various ideas and suggestions.
This book goes through the different areas of the curriculum but also has useful chapters for students who wish to delve deeper into mathematics education.
A useful and informative book for trainee teachers.
Excellent support for students who want to answer those
as with the English really helpful for subject and pedagogical knowledge for our students. Will support our face to face sessions and online materials
Highly recommended resource which provides in-depth explanations of key mathematical concepts.
A useful overview of mathematics needed for primary teaching.
