'I believe that these approaches are actually beneficial for children of all abilities...I have no hesitation in recommending it.'
I have found this book most useful when supporting Primary BEd and PGCE students who are out on teaching placement and teaching mathematics. I have also recommended it to many teaching friends as there are lots of useful ideas and a very handy CD to support the teaching of some of the more tricky mathematics concepts.
Lots of useful, practical advice which could prove invaluable to trainees, NQTs and experienced teachers. The included DVD is a bonus for downloading resources and powerpoints
A useful reference with some practical application for active and visual mathematics.
full of excellent models for developing mathematical understanding
An interesting an easy to understand text that enables practitioners in settings or, still in training to adopt different methods of teaching mathematics.
This was brimful of activities and approaches in supprting and teaching Maths. The additional information and resources on the CD Rom were an unexpected bonus.
A very good resource for students on the initial teacher programmes.
The author takes what may be unfamiliar and daunting concepts and skills in maths teaching of mathematics and makes them understandable and do-able. Helps to develop confidence.
I liked this book as it gave clear examples of the basics of maths. However, I was looking for ideas of ways to embed numeracy into the lessons I teach on vocational courses and I felt that the book didn't offer many real life situations. Any real life situations would have been more applicable for me embedding into lessons, rather teaching than primarily maths lessons, despite being in a clear visual way.
Interactive and imaginative representatives and activities that can be used to support the development of conceptual understanding in pupils as well as further develop problem solving skils. Many thanks.
Some really good strategies in particular for kinesthetic learners, useful for a wide range of educational and other staff working in inclusive primary school education
Good for students wanting to specialise
An interesting an easy to understand manual that has enabled tutors to adopt different methods of teach mathematics.
This book offers creative and visual resources to support the teaching of mathematics in the classroom. Covers key concepts in mathematical coverage. A stimulating read for both students and experienced teachers alike.
Great book with innovative and creative ideas for teachers/trainee teachers to explore and engage with.
