Book Description

First Published in 2003. This short series of three books - Number; Shape and Space; and Measures and Handling Data- gives teachers and parents a range of ideas to help children with mathematical learning difficulties get to grips with mathematics. In order to help these children effectively, statements and teaching points need to be rephrased and produced in a variety of ways, using concrete and pictorial aids. The activities in these books will help teachers to offer children a wide-ranging mathematical vocabulary - adding meaning to the words children already use rather than just adding words to their repertoire. these activities are flexible and can be used in any order with children of a range of ages and ability. Activities focusing on number includes: early counting activities; acquisition and use of number bonds; using the 100 square in understanding the four rules of number and number patterns; strategies to help with place value; an introduction to Maths Monster and activities to help memory training.
