This is a fantastic resource for primary teachers as it explains the links and connections in maths and suggests the clearest way to teach concepts to children. I am able to follow the explanations as everything is made clear, the video guidance helps too along with knowledge checks. This is the perfect companion to Mathematics Explained for Primary Teachers, 6th edition and now comes with over 800 questions!Throughout this book, there is a clear sense of the importance of preserving children’s understanding of mathematics rather than resorting to ‘tricks and recipes’. Major teaching points in number have been missed and the emphasis of using Dienes material and money for exploring place value and pre-partitioned shapes for fractions is unhelpful. With over 700 tested questions endorsed by primary PGCE trainees, along with detailed solutions and explanatory notes, the Student Workbook helps you gain the confidence you need to understand, apply and teach the primary maths curriculum. Ralph led the mathematics and physical education programmes for the Primary PGCE at the University of East Anglia until 2013.

Of particular use are the ‘teaching points’ sections and links to video explanations and further practice. Haylock approached mathematical concepts in very approachable language and if it's not your strong point (like me), this is a great way of bettering your understanding. His work in mathematics education has taken him to Germany, Belgium, Lesotho, Kenya, Brunei, India and Sweden. This Student Workbook reinforces and applies concepts introduced in Derek Haylock's Mathematics Explained for Primary Teachers. Including six sections: Grammar and Punctuation, Spelling, Comprehension, Multiplying, Dividing and Times Tables.

Haylock emphasises the importance of teaching written methods with understanding and one key strategy he exemplifies to achieve this is the use of representation. The essential book of times tables activities for the primary classroom, perfect for turning all pupils into Grand Masters of Times Tables! As part of my PGCE I purchased many books - this one being 1 of 3 that I actually use for my teaching.

I have found this book to be interesting but not necessarily the most helpful to figure out certain methods.

This user-friendly interactive book makes concepts simple and gives you the confidence and knowledge to learn and teach mathematics to primary children. Haylock and Manning's latest edition of this publication is still not improved enough in the numeracy section for me to recommend this to students. Fully aligned to the primary National Curriculum for maths, Times Tables Ninja features an introduction for teachers explaining the Concrete Pictorial Abstract (CPA) approach and the vocabulary to use when teaching times tables. I like to recommend this for this group to help them with mathematics pedagogy in training and beyond. Since working in a primary school I have referred to this book many times to develop my knowledge and understanding further and aids me to be able to offer more to the children I work with.

Join a cast of entertaining bugs as they explore maths through everyday examples, from handling numbers and times tables to weighing ingredients and telling the time.I particularly found the chapter on mental strategies useful for explaining how the laws of multiplication and division work and for encouraging ad hoc approaches to multiplication. Every chapter integrates children’s learning, classroom practice, and teacher’s own requirements for subject knowledge, making this the ideal text to guide you through your studies and beyond. Easily understood for someone who didn't like maths at school and has to now teach it (and it's my favourite subject to teach! Links to the National Curriculum specify the statutory requirements for primary schools in England that relate to the mathematical content of each chapter.
