Numeracy is a core subject in schools, and this book will provide those supporting children in this subject area with tried and tested strategies for working with students, as well as the tools to improve their own subject knowledge. Advice is given on how to: " provide an overview of key maths topics; " introduce students to key issues surrounding the teaching of numeracy; " support learners who find it difficult to understand concepts, and stretch those who have grasped them easily; " show how numeracy links with other areas of the curriculum, and with everyday life. Each chapter covers a different aspect of mathematics, highlighting key teaching points and common misconceptions. Case studies from teaching assistants bring the topics alive, and there are tasks for the reader to try out, which will them develop their own understanding. This book is essential for reading for all teaching assistants and support staff in early years and primary settings. It is particularly useful for those studying for a Foundation Degree.

Dyscalculia experts Patricia Babtie and Sue Dillon present 100 ideas to help students with numeracy difficulties grasp the core skills required in the secondary curriculum, not just in maths but in other subjects including science, design and technology, computing and geography. Around 25 per cent of secondary school students have severe numeracy difficulties. These students are often anxious and fearful about using maths arising from a repeated failure to learn. This impacts their overall attainment. Patricia and Sue show how numeracy difficulties can be overcome using multi-sensory teaching and helping students with their study skills, revision and exam techniques. This dip-in-and-out book provides activities and games to encourage students to explore numerical ideas and discover underlying patterns across the secondary curriculum. These ideas help to develop an understanding of maths concepts and see their relevance in everyday life. 100 Ideas for Secondary Teachers: Supporting Students with Numeracy Difficulties contains adaptable ideas that are relevant across the curriculum. It will help build confidence in learners, making it a must-have resource for all schools.

Recognising that many adults do not seek tuition in literacy, language and numeracy, this Lifeline helps teachers and managers to consider how these subjects can be taught alongside or within other programmes of study. By identifying where literacy, language or numeracy occur naturally it shows how teaching and learning can become more relevant and purposeful. This practical guide offers different models of delivery that can be adapted to suit both the learners and the programme of study. It draws on examples developed by teachers and outlines the challenges and complexities of this approach as well as the opportunities and advantages.

What does it take to achieve lasting improvement in student numeracy? According to the contributors in this volume, high quality teaching - combined with educational leadership at a school's and system's level - can attain just that. Founded upon evidence and research from the Leading Aligned Numeracy Development/LAND project (an Australian government initiative), this groundbreaking book provides a practical framework, as well as guidelines and tools, to develop teacher competence and to enhance leadership systems that support and consolidate student numeracy skills. Divided into sections that build on step-by-step principles and knowledge, the book is designed to address the 'numeracy challenge' from the perspectives of student achievement, teacher quality, school leadership, and system policy. Real-world insights, quotes, and examples are drawn from a range of schools and central offices in remote, rural, and metropolitan regions. A supporting website provides documentation that will assist school/departmental staff in implementing change and facilitating improvements in student numeracy that are measurable, achievable, and sustained. Packed with insights, actions, and expertise from educators who have participated in the project to achieve sustained school and system-wide numeracy improvement, the book provides a framework, the guidelines, and the tools for building alignment across school systems, taking a top-down, bottom-up approach.

This report describes the findings from the first three years of the ACER longitudinal Literacy and Numeracy Study (LLANS). The longitudinal study was established in 1999 in a context in which there was significant national interest in improving achievement in literacy and numeracy for all Australian children, and a particular interest in the development of foundational skills in the early years of school. A nation wide sample of 100 schools was selected in proportion to the population of each state and territory and ten students were randomly selected from each of these schools. This provided a cohort for LLANS of 1000 children who commenced school in 1999. The longitudinal study continued beyond the first three years of school until 2005 when the students in the sample were in year 6.
