This book is a practical guide to teaching pupils who have difficulties with basic numeracy. It is written as a suggested script in order to emphasise the importance of language in developing numerical thinking and reasoning skills. Step-by-step instructions show how to teach pupils to use whole numbers, talk about them and reason about them as well as communicating their thinking in verbal, diagrammatic and written form. The authors have structured the book so that each teaching point is clearly stated and then followed by specific teaching instructions, including activities and games which are important for fostering a positive attitude to numeracy. Each new concept builds on previous understanding so that new facts are derived by reasoning from known facts. The book deals with whole numbers and covers the four operations: the place value structure, formal algorithms and word problems. A4, xx pages.
