Primary Mathematics Across the Curriculum

Second Edition

© 2012 | 200 pages | Learning Matters
This book supports trainee teachers working towards primary QTS in teaching primary mathematics across all areas of the curriculum. This Second Edition is linked to the 2012 Teachers' Standards.

Focused on teaching a more integrated and inclusive curriculum, the text draws out meaningful cross curricular links and embraces the latest thinking and current good practice in mathematics teaching. It begins with a section on teaching mathematics, covering all strands of the curriculum, and goes on to offer guidance on the use and application of mathematics more generally across subjects. A chapter on using mathematics to enahnce learning highlights the importance of being able to use mathematics effectively in other aspects of the teacher's role. Interactive activities and case studies link theory to practice and encourage the reader to rethink how mathematics is taught in primary schools.

A lot of good ideas for teaching Maths creatively. I liked the chapter on how to use assessment data to improve learning.
