`Comprises a very helpful resource for students who are obliged to succeed in passing the QTS numeracy test in order to gain QTS. It should provide a valuable resource for students to increase their confidence as well as their competence' - Mathematics in Schools `The stated aim of this book is to help teacher-trainees prepare for the numeracy test all new entrants to the profession now have to pass. Any trainee worried about the test should find this a useful resource.... As in similar books by Derek Haylock, the mathematical content is written in a clear and accessible style' - Mike Askew, Times Educational Supplement Quotes from the author's students `The book is excellent. I think it will present students and others with a valuable resource, not only to help with the QTS test, but also for teaching. I could see myself using it on "dip-in-as-necessary" basis'. `The practice questions were really helpful for checking and consolidating learning. The material was useful for the QTS test, particularly the mental calculations. Many thanks for letting me work through your sample material. I cannot begin to tell you how much more I have learnt! This has definitely made me feel more confident about passing the QTS numeracy skills test! I have definitely demonstrated to myself from this material that my ability to complete calculations mentally has increased. I can calculate faster and with some accuracy now!' `Comprises a very helpful resource for students who are obliged to succeed in passing the QTS numeracy test in order to gain QTS. It should provide a valuable resource for students to increase their confidence as well as their competence' - Mathemtics in Schools This book is designed to help teacher-trainees prepare for the Qualified Teaching Standards numeracy test that must now be passed by all entrants to the teaching profession. The author focuses especially on weaknesses in numeracy often observed in adults, and in teacher-trainees in particular. As far as possible, this mathematics is set in the professional context of teaching, drawing on statistics and other data from individual schools, the DfEE and the Qualifications and Curriculum Agency (QCA).

Transform mathematics learning from “doing” to “thinking” American students are losing ground in the global mathematical environment. What many of them lack is numeracy—the ability to think through the math and apply it outside of the classroom. Referencing the new common core and NCTM standards, the authors outline nine critical thinking habits that foster numeracy and show you how to: Monitor and repair students’ understanding Guide students to recognize patterns Encourage questioning for understanding Develop students’ mathematics vocabulary Included are several numeracy-rich lesson plans, complete with clear directions and student handouts.

By understanding why children struggle with maths, teachers are better equipped to provide effective support and nurture confidence in low-achievers. Numeracy and Learning Difficulties includes how to tackle common learning difficulties by following different teaching practices and principles, identifying gaps in students' knowledge and developing curricula that bridges these gaps, improves numerical literacy using problem-solving strategies and skills, and a handy checklist of benchmarks in achievement.

Numeracy in Early Childhood covers all the topics which are important for students studying to become early childhood practitioners. This Australian text focuses on using everyday language and objects, and predominantly play-based pedagogy in teaching, and provides practical models and guides to facilitate numeracy education. By framing a subject such as mathematics within a sociocultural perspective, the book shows how these everyday interactions can shape young children's mathematical thinking.

This handbook is intended to help craft lecturers in further education colleges teach students who have difficulties with basic communication skills, including reading, writing, and calculation. It gives suggestions on how craft lecturers can help students improve their literacy and numeracy in the workshop and classroom. Examples based on specific crafts that can be relatively easily adapted and applied to other craft subjects are given. Introductory materials discuss determination of reading, writing, and calculations tasks required in courses and teaching the theory of a craft subject. The next section concerns reading tasks with which craft students are faced, including the blackboard and overhead projectors; reading instructions, handouts, and worksheets; and textbooks. It considers the difficulties these pose and examines ways in which the craft tutor can help students improve their learning of the literacy and numeracy skills of the craft. The following section deals with access skills--library and research skills. Students' writing is the focus of the next section. It suggests ways of dealing with the wide range of written ability. The section on numeracy focuses on needs identification, instructional methods, and areas of numerical work. The final section suggests testing methodology. (YLB)

'Unlike many books based on research work this book doesn't just let teachers know what is going wrong with children's learning it actually gives some practical advice about what to do next. The whole book is based upon extensive observation and recording of individual children and their difficulties with mathematics. These children are the most difficult to plan for in a busy classroom and the authors appreciate the small steps and the different learning styles approaches needed for these children. This approach fits well with the NNS wave and springboard materials but takes the analysis of the individual's difficulties to a more detailed level. The book brings together research carried out across a range of countries and therefore shows the versatility of the approaches taken. This will be a very useful book for trainee teachers as it exemplifies how to use assessment to feed into teaching. It will be helpful for class teachers and mathematics co-ordinators as well as SENCOs to assist in improving the teaching and learning for specific children in our schools' - Mary Briggs, Primary and Early Years PGCE Co-ordinator, Institute of Education, University of Warwick 'This is a highly practical resource that will be appreciated by classroom and specialist teachers alike. It will provide teachers new to the Math Recovery program with practical help and support to diagnose errors and misconceptions in early numeracy. Practicing Math Recovery Specialists will be thrilled with the addition of four new highly focused assessments and an elaboration of the Learning Framework in Number. Early Numeracy is admirably grounded in international research and well-established theory, characteristics that are much sought after in the current data driven educational environment. Like many others, I was drawn to Math Recovery after reading the first edition of Early Numeracy. This second edition is a treasure - it is exciting to consider the impact it will have on children and teachers, and to the growth of the Math Recovery program' - Audrey Murray, Lead Teacher, Midwest Math Recovery Training Center, Minneapolis This text has been fully updated to include developments and refinements brought about by widespread international application of the assessment tools in the Mathematics Recovery Programme. The book will help practitioners to identify and provide detailed analyses of all children but especially those who are able and those who underachieve in early numeracy. It will enable teachers, learning support personnel, numeracy consultants and educational psychologists to advise colleagues and parents on children's number knowledge and strategies for early numeracy. The Mathematics Recovery Programme has been successfully applied in Australia, the United Kingdom and Ireland, the United States and Canada, both in specialist interventions and classroom settings. The revised version shows how familiarisation with, and understanding of, the diagnostic assessment tools has allowed teachers to become more knowledgeable in understanding children's difficulties and misconceptions, and more skilled and confident in planning programmes of intervention and monitoring the children's progress. This new edition includes: - Integrated frameworks of useful tasks for assessing children's number knowledge and strategies; - Four separate and revised diagnostic assessment interviews; - Assessments for addition and subtraction strategies, Base Ten Arithmetical strategies, Early Grouping strategies, and Advanced Grouping strategies in the four operations; - How the assessment process has impacted significantly on teachers' professional development and contributed to the raising of standards in early numeracy.
