Other The Trouble With Maths The Trouble With Maths

Winner of the NASEN/TES (National Association of Special Educational Needs and the Times Educational Supplement) Books for Learning and Teaching Award 2004. The book was chosen because it is about children and how they learn and how they don't learn. The Judges said "Thought provoking, fresh, accessible and very thorough with content that hauls the reader in. It moves away from the search for the perfect maths scheme and much more towards individual responses, looking at the reasons why children might arrive at a different answer and the steps that can be taken to prevent difficulties arising. You wouldn't have to be a learning support specialist pickup on its user-friendly strategies."

Detailed Description

What it Says on the Back of the Book "This book is packed with excellent ideas and ways of 'looking' at mathematics that should excite the conscientious teacher who is searching for practical advice." Dr. Sula Ellis, Ellis Dyslexia Consultants What is the trouble with maths? 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 that will become an essential classroom companion to anyone who uses it. Whilst considering every aspect concerning maths and learning, this book provides a perfect balance of advice, guidance and practical activities, enabling the reader to: * develop flexible thinking skills; * use alternative strategies for pupils to access basic facts; * implement effective preventative measures before disaffection sets in; * recognise maths anxiety and tackle self-esteem problems; * make accurate ongoing assessments of pupils' difficulties; * design informal diagnostic procedures. With useful features such as checklists for the 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 coordinators, student teachers, and learning support staff. Steve Chinn is Principal and Founder of Mark College, Somerset, a specialist school for dyslexics awarded 'Beacon school status' by the Department for Education and Skills.
