Additional Book Details

Numeracy is a core subject in schools, and this book will provide those supporting children in this subject area with tried and tested strategies for working with students, as well as the tools to improve their own subject knowledge.



Advice is given on how to:



" provide an overview of key maths topics;


" introduce students to key issues surrounding the teaching of numeracy;


" support learners who find it difficult to understand concepts, and stretch those who have grasped them easily;


" show how numeracy links with other areas of the curriculum, and with everyday life.



Each chapter covers a different aspect of mathematics, highlighting key teaching points and common misconceptions. Case studies from teaching assistants bring the topics alive, and there are tasks for the reader to try out, which will them develop their own understanding.



This book is essential for reading for all teaching assistants and support staff in early years and primary settings. It is particularly useful for those studying for a Foundation Degree.
