'All the ideas look easy to use and quick to prepare... This is a very interesting and thought provoking book - it manages to ask questions about how we teach able children but also provides some ideas and some materials to help' - The Association of Teachers of Mathematics
Finding stimulating and challenging maths activities for able pupils in a mainstream classroom can be demanding for the busy teacher, especially if maths is not your specialism.
Based on her experience as an Advanced Skills Teacher and LEA Consultant, Anne Price explains the issues and theories surrounding the education of able pupils and links these to practical, creative examples to be used in the classroom.
Useful resources include:
- Photocopiable materials,
- Advice on different teaching styles,
- Activities and tasks for individuals, groups or the whole class
GATCOs, Numeracy Consultants, Learning Support Teachers and Student and class teachers looking for new and creative ways of teaching maths activities to able students will find this book invaluable.
