Product description

All trainee teachers in England and Wales have to sit numeracy, literacy and ICT skills tests in order to achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) which permits them to continue or start teaching. This book concentrates on the mathematics part of the test, targeting candidates who feel they have weak numeracy skills. "How to Pass the QTS Numeracy Skills Test" starts at a low level and includes a diagnostic test, a maths review, mental and general arithmetic practice, and revision of statistics. It will give you a good grounding in the skills needed to pass the test, particularly if you have had prior lack of success in maths. Each chapter begins with a maths audit so that you can review the exact skills needed for each section of the test. The first chapter teaches quick ways of answering mental arithmetic questions followed by five mock tests. The remaining chapters cover the general arithmetic and statistical skills required for the onscreen questions, followed by two QTS-type tests with worked-through answers. "How to Pass the QTS Numeracy Skills Test" will give you more confidence and reduce exam room stress, helping you to avoid last-minute panic and take another step towards achieving Qualified Teacher Status.
