I have recommended this book to both my Primary BEd and PGCE students. The layout and ideas in the book are easy to access and well laid out. I particularly like how it offers students support with appropriate questioning and even some lesson plan ideas with assessment opportunities.
Chapters are broken down in specific mathematical content related to the teaching of number and place value that is year group specific. This book provides good examples of lessons and activities that are supported with theory. This clearly written and well-presented text provides all trainee teachers with the confidence, knowledge and understanding of how to teach number and place value throughout the primary school in key areas of the mathematics national curriculum.
Some useful examples.
Very accessible. Lesson plans are clear and give examples of challenges that may be faced. A good 'dip in' book for students to get a feel for what a good maths lesson could look like.
