helpful for filling in the gaps in knowledge and understanding
This text has always been useful but in its updated form it now retains currency. Students have found this book very helpful - especially those who may have found Maths challenging in their own school days!
Very clear and easy to use. Well laid out. Good explanations of maths
Haylock is so good when it comes to explaining maths to those who are having challenges in preparing to teach it.
A fantastic reference guide for those needing to brush up as well as those needing a bit more.
Very comprehensive and clearly set out. The self-assessment questions enable those students who lack confidence to develop their skills. The online materials are a very useful extra support.
An excellent text that is essential for all primary teaching students.
Clearly set out chapters with self assessments that allow students to keep track of their own developing subject knowledge.
A very accessible and clearly written text that provides a good insight into Mathematics for aspiring and qualified teachers.
An invaluable text for trainee teachers delivering Maths in the primary classroom.
This updated version of an old favourite which is both accessible and interesting version will be welcomed by students on our BA Education and PGCE courses as the useful guide to support them in understanding the requirements of good subject knowledge which they will need to become effective practitioners.
Really clear and easy to use. Using it to develop secure mathematical subject knowledge and like the way it is organised into the various topics.
Would now like to see the student workbook and how it will complement it. (Have ordered an inspection copy)
This text provides students with a good overview of teaching and learning content and methodology in the primary school.
"It does exactly what it says on the tin" or exactly as the title implies - simple and effective mathematics for primary teachers.
Very easy to read and understand. Clear relationship between mathematical theory and practice. Good reference book for teacher trainees, NQTs and non-specialist mathematics teachers. I would also recommend it for MaST teachers in training.
A good supplemntary text for our teacher trainers.
This book is listed as a core reading text for the students. It is clearly laid out and helps the students clarify their understanding of the subject/topic, in preparation for teaching.
Still the best option for mathematics subject knowledge and pedagogy in our opinion.
Forms the basis of course materials for its in depth analysis of the primary mathematics curriculem.
This book provides general students with a solid foundation for building up their maths knowledge and understanding for teaching at primary level. The research focus at the end of each chapter provides an added level of interest and the self-assessment questions aid the student in gauging their understanding. The learning and teaching points will also help students put their understanding into the classroom context.
This is such a valuable book for students' own subject knowledge that I encourage them to invest in a copy for themselves
