Abstract:

"This book offers important insights into the often-confusing world of numeracy. By looking at learning difficulties in maths from several perspectives, including the language of mathematics, thinking styles and the demands of individual topics, Steve Chinn delivers a comprehensive text which will become an essential classroom companion to anyone who uses it." "With useful features such as checklists for evaluation of books, software and test materials, this book highlights essential skills that will allow teachers to diagnose and address maths difficulties and improve standards. It draws on tried and tested methods based on the author's years of classroom experience to provide an authoritative, yet highly accessible one-stop classroom resource for all teachers, classroom assistants, Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators, student teachers, and learning support staff."--Jacket.
