Overcoming Dyscalculia and Difficulties with Number

Second Edition
Additional resources:


November 2021 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

This practical book draws on Ronit Bird’s teaching experience to create detailed strategies and teaching plans for students aged 9-16 who have difficulties with number. Activities and games are used to teach numeracy skills in these key areas: number components, bridging, multiplication, division and reasoning strategies.

 

New to this edition:

  • An updated Part I, improving the clarity and flow of the teaching ideas, including a table mapping games against specific teaching points

  • More activities and guidance for multiplication and division

  • A new Part V, consolidating new and existing teaching games in one place

  • 4 new videos added to the online resources

This is an ideal resource for class teachers, SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) and maths subject leader, and is equally useful for teaching assistants and learning support assistants.
