Teaching Mathematics in the Primary School sets out the nature of the subject, how it is catered for in the early years and primary curricula and offers guidance and suggestions on good practice using a series of generic categories such a planning, classroom organisation, teaching and learning strategies, Special Educational Needs and equal opportunities. Whether you are beginning a teacher-training course or embarking on a career in teaching, this introductory textbook provides comprehensive information on how to meet the standards for effective teaching in early years and primary settings. Teaching Mathematics in the Primary School provides the reader with an understanding of how mathematics works as a subject and why it is included in the National Curriculum. It shows how a comprehensive range of strategies can be employed to teach mathematics and how to plan and resource high-quality teaching and learning. The chapters cover key issues such as: how to monitor, assess and report on children's learning; how to provide equal opportunities; how to meet special educational needs; how to co-ordinate the subject; and, above all, how to teach mathematics effectively. Numerous examples from early years and primary classrooms are included as well as checklists and helpful advice. There are also suggestions for further reading to assist trainee and newly qualified teachers in meeting the Standards for Initial Teacher Training and Induction.
