Primary Mathematics for Trainee Teachers

Primary Mathematics for Trainee Teachers

Edited by:

December 2014 | 304 pages | Learning Matters
With chapter sequencing following the new Curriculum, this book supports trainee Primary school teachers to make use of the opportunities presented in the new National Curriculum for effective and engaging Mathematics teaching. 

Covering all of the areas of the new Curriculum for primary mathematics and offering insight into effective teaching, this book helps students connect what they need to teach with how it can be taught.  Exploring opportunities in the new curriculum for creative and imaginative teaching, it shows readers how to capitalize on opportunities to develop children's reasoning and problem solving skills.  It explores how to make links between mathematics and children's lived experiences to enhance their learning and enables trainees to develop an ability to plan with discernment,  making the most of existing thinking and research as well as building confidence in adapting and customizing ideas.

Includes the full National Curriculum Programme of Study for Maths, key stages 1 and 2 as a useful reference for trainee teachers.

Other books in this series include: Primary Science for Trainee Teachers and Primary English for Trainee Teachers

A useful overview of mathematics needed for primary teaching.

This is a very detailed text that offers the trainee teacher support with subject knowledge but some useful tips on starting points when teaching various mathematical concepts and suggestions of activities to offer the children. It does offer some ideas for AfL however not always the most ground-breaking. I do like how it offers excerpts of research that links to the various ideas and suggestions.
