Primary maths is stereotypically loved by a few hairy oddballs, tolerated by most sane primary practitioners; loathed by many. With the right approach, however; the right mindset and sense of the impossible being achievable, maths can be moulded into the diamond in the rough of the primary curriculum. Enter Nick Tiley-Nunn: Britain's most imaginative, most exciting primary maths specialist. Over years of practice he has generated ideas about the teaching of maths that are so distinct, so far out and so utterly brilliant that any primary teacher struggling to grasp the nettle of teaching long division will emerge from communing with his ideas not just with some clichéd sense that 'maths can be fun', but that it can be brilliant, life-enhancing and truly hilarious. This book presents ideas for primary maths teaching so wildly creative and so full of the joy of life that any classroom of kids will be grateful you read it.
Active Maths Teacher Resource 2 contains the teaching framework. It describes a range of classroom activities and practice, provides additional worksheets and is cross-referenced to the student activity pages, the Quality Teaching Framework and relevant cards in the Maths-in-a-Box series.
Arranged by the content strands - Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, Statistics and Probability - giving teachers independence and flexibility in constructing a week-by-week maths program. Practical and hands-on activities encourage students to develop their own strategies as confident learners. Graded activities provide effective scaffolding for students and allow teachers to cater for mixed ability classes. Discussion icons are indicated throughout the books to highlight areas where class or small group discussion can take place. Revision boxes contain information to help students recall past learning, or offer hints and further explanation of difficult concepts. Full-colour photos and illustrations link learning activities to every day contexts to help make maths meaningful. Activities are related to Cambridge Maths-in-a-Box, which enriches the program with contextual activities and saves teachers time with planning.
Active Maths Practice & Homework 6 is arranged in units, which provide an open-ended task for the week, exercises in mental computation, review of concepts tackled in the previous week, and ample practice of the current week's work. Active Maths Practice & Homework 6 is ideal for homework or extra practice in the classroom.
