Teaching Number in the Classroom with 4-8yr olds

Part of the best-selling Maths Recovery series, this practical, step-by-step guide to classroom instruction takes an inquiry-based approach to assess children’s knowledge and build on this to develop a firm foundation of understanding and confidence in mathematics. Topics covered range from beginning number and early counting strategies to multi-digit addition and subtraction right through to multiplication and division.

An invaluable resource for use on pre-service teacher training courses and for all primary classroom teachers and assistants, including experienced Mathematics Recovery instructors, as well as learning support personnel, primary mathematics advisors, numeracy consultants and educational psychologists.
