Third Edition

56 pages | Learning Matters
This book supports trainees on primary initial teacher training courses where a secure knowledge and understanding of mathematics is required for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). A rigorous test enables trainees to identify their strengths and weaknesses in mathematics and this can be revisited in order to monitor and evaluate progress towards QTS. Trainees are able to direct their studies more usefully and quickly develop confidence in topics they find difficult. This edition is fully up to date with the 2007 QTS Standards.

"Slim, accessible and constructive...a good choice for anyone wishing to [identify] his or her strengths and weaknesses when starting an ITE course" (Maths in School)

This area was highlighted as a particular area of need and support for our students. I have used the text extensively to support our students and build confidence.

This has some very useful self test questions which students can refer to in order to check their own competence across several concepts taught in the primary classroom.

I thought the examples of questions were thin on the ground. I felt this was no more comprehensive than is available on student teacher websites.
