This practical book provides teachers in primary and secondary schools with advice and resources to develop a visual and active approach to teaching mathematics. It includes, specific examples of teaching strategies and ideas for lesson activities to support teaching mathematics to learners who take information and ideas visually and actively.
Accompanying this second edition is a handy CD that includes a range of resources for teaching each topic including:
- Dynamic PowerPoint animations which can be used to help learners to develop their understanding of key mathematical concepts
- Posters of each concept
And in addition to all this, each chapter suggests even further links to other useful resources for every topic to enhance your teaching.
With clear explanations and strong visual layout, this is an ideal resource for teachers, SENCOs (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators) and teaching assistants who want to motivate their learners with different and exciting ways of teaching and learning maths.
