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.
If you are a primary trainee, you must demonstrate a knowledge of mathematics to be recommended for QTS. This popular, widely recommended text helps you audit your knowledge of mathematics and understand what learning you need to pass your course. A rigorous test helps you identify your strengths and weaknesses and can be revisited at key stages in your course as a tool to monitor and evaluate progress. The fourth edition has been updated in line with the new National Curriculum, includes more information on expanding and developing your knowledge of mathematics and is linked to the newest Teachers' Standards.
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.

The Sixth Edition of this popular core text provides the essential teaching theory and practice for primary mathematics. It promotes effective teaching through secure pedagogical knowledge, covering the key skills of planning, monitoring and assessment and class management, and relating these specifically to primary mathematics. This Sixth Edition is linked to the 2012 Teachers' Standards. With full coverage of the theory and practice required for effective and creative mathematics teaching, this text is an essential guide for all trainees working towards QTS. Throughout, practical guidance and features support trainees to translate this learning to the classroom, embed ICT in their lessons and to understand the wider context of their teaching. Trainees will find it helpful to use this book alongise Primary Mathematics Knowledge and Understanding. About the Achieving QTS series All the books in this successful series support trainees through their initial teacher training and guide them in the acquisition of their subject knowledge, understanding and classroom practice. All new titles within the series link to the 2012 Teachers' Standards and take into account recent changes in Initial Teacher Training.
