  • The Basic Number Diagnostic test by Bill Gillham, profiles key aspects of developing numeracy - from reciting and writing numbers to simple addition and subtraction. Its main purpose is to show what a child can and cannot do, to determine specific teaching objectives and to follow up those children identified as needing learning support. To this end, the test provides a standardised, diagnostic assessment which will help teachers to:
    • pinpoint the bottom 20% before problems become severe;
    • diagnose and profile each child's strengths and weaknesses in early numeracy;
    • match teaching activities and strategies to each child's needs.
  • This book aims to introduce the reader to imaginative mathematics activities that maximise the brain's learning potential. Demonstrating instructional principles discussed in David A. Sousa's best seller 'How the Brain Learns Mathematics', this resource provides brain-friendly, ready-to-use mathematics lessons for grades 4-5. Teachers will find step-by-step guidance and all the necessary reproducible resources for mathematics instruction that involves group work, reflection, movement and visualisation.

  • This publication is a result of collaboration between Mike Ollerton, Simon Gregg and Helen Williams. The ideas arose from a workshop exploring the use of Cuisenaire with learners from early years to adult. This book develops the tasks discussed  in the workshop, starting from Early Years. Suggestions for starting points with Cuisenaire rods begin this book. Following this, ideas focus on specific themes such as Counting, Sequences, Patterns and Algenbraic Reasoning, Fractions, Ratio and Proportion, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, and finally problems that help learners to see the interconnectedness of mathematics.
