Teaching Mathematics Visually and Actively
- Tandi Clausen-May - Educational researcher
Accompanying this second edition is a companion website that includes a range of resources for teaching each topic including:
- Dynamic PowerPoint animations which can be used to help learners to develop their understanding of key mathematical concepts
- Posters of each concept
And in addition to all this, each chapter suggests even further links to other useful resources for every topic to enhance your teaching.
With clear explanations and strong visual layout, this is an ideal resource for teachers, SENCOs (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators) and teaching assistants who want to motivate their learners with different and exciting ways of teaching and learning maths.
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.
This book is good at what it does and I think I would consider using the Clock example as a reminder of fractions, before applying it to a scenario more relevant to my course.
I would suggest it to learners who are resitting Maths GCSE alongside my course.
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
