The book lets teachers identify where their students are in terms of number skills, and sets out a strategy for developing their knowledge. The authors show how to advance children's learning across five stages of early arithmetical learning - emergent, perceptual, figurative, initial number, and facile number. This provides for increasingly sophisticated number strategies across addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, as well as developing children's number word and numeral knowledge, and their ability to structure number and have grouping strategies. The approach used nine guiding principles for teaching. Each chapter has clearly defined teaching procedures which show how to take the children onto the next more sophisticated stage. The teaching procedures are organized into key teaching topics, and each includes: o a clearly defined purpose o detailed instructions, activities, learning tasks and reinforcing games o lists of responses which children may make o application in whole class, small group and individualised settings o a link to the Learning Framework in Number (see Early Numeracy- second edition, 2005) o how the guiding principles for teaching can be used to allow teachers to evaluate and reflect upon their practice Primary practitioners in Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada have tested the teaching procedures which can be used in conjunction with each country's numeracy strategy. Primary teachers, especially of the early years, mathematics co-ordinators, heads of school, mathematics advisers, special educationalists, learning support personnel, teacher assistants, lecturers in initial teacher training and educational psychologists will all find this book invaluable.

'All the ideas look easy to use and quick to prepare... This is a very interesting and thought provoking book - it manages to ask questions about how we teach able children but also provides some ideas and some materials to help' - The Association of Teachers of Mathematics Finding stimulating and challenging maths activities for able pupils in a mainstream classroom can be demanding for the busy teacher, especially if maths is not your specialism. Based on her experience as an Advanced Skills Teacher and LEA Consultant, Anne Price explains the issues and theories surrounding the education of able pupils and links these to practical, creative examples to be used in the classroom. Useful resources include: - Photocopiable materials, - Advice on different teaching styles, - Activities and tasks for individuals, groups or the whole class GATCOs, Numeracy Consultants, Learning Support Teachers and Student and class teachers looking for new and creative ways of teaching maths activities to able students will find this book invaluable.

Special education is the individually planned and systematically monitored arrangement of teaching procedures, adapted equipment and materials, accessible settings, and other interventions designed to help learners with special needs achieve a higher level of personal self-sufficiency and success in school and community than would be available if the student were only given access to a typical classroom education. Students with special needs, such as learning differences, mental health issues, specific disabilities (physical or developmental, and giftedness are those whose needs are addressed within the classroom setting. Generally however, the term "special education" refers specifically to students with learning disabilities, mental conditions, and other disabling conditions. This new book presents the latest research in the field.
