The "Maths Chest" series enables teachers to teach mathematics in a way which will meet the requirements of the National Curriculum, the Northern Ireland Curriculum and the 5-14 Mathematics Guidelines. Consisting of eight comprehensively resourced "Maths Chests", the scheme provides a detailed and supportive scheme of work. Other features of the series are: written by teachers, for teachers, to support primary school "good practice"; provides a series of spirally structured teacher's files for the teacher to plan lessons to meet a realistic variety of needs; caters for differing levels of achievement through built-in enrichment and reinforcement material; describes and resources classroom activities - both teacher-led and teacher-independent; is packed in plastic crates for easy storage; and offers support for individual and class teaching. Written for pupils who are working at Level 5 or above (Level E in Scotland), "Maths Chest 8" provides practically-based activities presented in the tried-and-tested form of the "Maths Chest" series.
The authors have recognized the potential need for additional support for non-specialist teachers who have pupils working at this level and this has been built into the teacher's file. This pupils' book is an important core pupil component which develops recording off the page in exercise books or on sheets.show more
