This short series of three books - "Number", "Shape and Space" and "Measures and Handling Data" - gives teachers and parents a range of ideas to help children with mathematical learning difficulties get to grip with mathematics. In order to help these children effectively, statements and teaching points need to be rephrased and produced in a variety of ways, using concrete and pictorial aids.
The activities in these books aim to help teachers to offer children a wide-ranging mathematical vocabulary - adding meaning to the words children already use rather than just adding words to their repertoire. These activities are flexible and can be used in order with children of a range of ages and ability levels.
Activities focusing on measure and handling data include: the language of measure; the use of measuring equipment and estimation; formulae; digital and analogue clocks; passage of time, 24-hour clock and timetables; using and constructing graphs; and probability.
