Description

The third edition of Reys’ Helping Children Learn Mathematics is a practical resource for undergraduate students of primary school teaching. Rich in ideas, tools and stimulation for lessons during teaching rounds or in the classroom, this edition continues to provide a clear understanding of how to navigate the Australian Curriculum, with detailed coverage on how to effectively use Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in the classroom.

This is a full colour printed textbook with an interactive ebook code included. Great self-study features include: auto-graded in-situ knowledge check questions, video of teachers demonstrating how different maths topics can be taught in the classroom and animated, branched chain scenarios are in the e-text.
