Necessary book to have with help in achieving QTS
on 22 February 2017
My daughter is doing a PGCE and this book was recommended to her by the school where she currently works as a teaching assistant. The book is thorough and has proved to be very helpful to her for her upcoming QTS. She is friends with a few other people that are doing both the QTS and PGCE and they all seem to have this book too.
There are 101 pages and the text is neatly and clearly printed on white paper. The index is broken up into Acknowledgements, About the author, series of introductions and introduction. The chapters are :- key knowledge, mental arithmetic, solving written arithmetic problems, interpreting and using written date, practice mental arithmetic and on-screen tests, answers and key points. There are also further reading and a glossary section at the back of the book.
The author until recently was a senior lecturer in mathematical education.
