Primary Mathematics

by Claire Mooney Alice Hansen Mary Briggs Mike Fletcher Judith Mccullouch

This book supports trainees on primary initial teacher training courses where a secure knowledge and understanding of mathematics is required for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). A rigorous test enables trainees to identify their strengths and weaknesses in mathematics and this can be revisited in order to monitor and evaluate progress towards QTS. Trainees are able to direct their studies more usefully and quickly develop confidence in topics they find difficult. This edition is fully up to date with the 2007 QTS Standards.

Primary Mathematics: Teaching Theory and Practice

by Claire Mooney Alice Hansen Mary Briggs Mike Fletcher Judith Mccullouch

Mooney, Fletcher (both U. of Southampton), Briggs (U. of Warwick), Hansen (St. Martin's College, Lancaster), and McCullouch (U. of Winchester) present a revised text for primary trainee teachers working towards Qualified Teacher Status in the UK, also suitable as a reference for Newly Qualified Teachers, mentors, curriculum coordinators, and other education professionals. The text addresses the management of mathematics learning as well as progression and misconceptions in primary mathematics. The third edition includes new reflective tasks, greater reference to the role and use of ICT in mathematics teaching, more emphasis on the National Curriculum and new Primary Framework for mathematics, and new material on assessment for learning, using and applying mathematics and developing thinking skills.
