Numeracy and Learning Difficulties

Approaches to Teaching and Assessment (2nd Edition)

By Peter Westwood

Numeracy and Learning Difficulties provides guidance on how to develop flexible teaching methods and strategies to improve mathematical skills of students. It discusses common areas of learning difficulty in mathematics, and it looks at ways teachers can determine gaps in students' knowledge, as well as how to develop curricula and problem-solving strategies to address these gaps. Peter Westwood has been presented with awards for excellence in teaching from Flinders University in South Australia, as well as from the University of Hong Kong. In the Learning Difficulties series, he evaluates, summarizes, and presents research, strategies, and best-practice methodologies for working with students that have learning difficulties in particular subject areas. Rigorous, yet accessible, the titles in this series provide teachers with the knowledge, data and direction they need to develop their skills and meet student needs.
