- Overcoming Difficulties with NumberStrategies for teaching numeracy skills through a progression of practical activities & visualisation techniques
Age Range: 9 to 16
In writing this practical book, Ronit Bird has drawn on her teaching and training experience to create teaching plans for key numeracy topics, aimed at those working with students aged 9-16.
She provides detailed strategies for teaching numeracy skills through a progression of practical activities and visualisation techniques which build the self-esteem of students who need extra help and give them a basic foundation in number. While the plans cover the National Numeracy Strategy, they can also be used in any setting where maths is being taught.
Topics covered include:
- games and puzzles for learning number components
- reasoning strategies
A bank of accompanying resources, games, activities and Su-Doku puzzles is available on the CD included with this book.
This is an ideal resource for both class teachers and maths subject teachers, , and is equally useful for teaching assistants and learning support assistants
