Building Numeracy by George Booker


ISBN 9780190330347


Classroom intervention strategies to build confidence and competence

Building Numeracy has been designed to assist all teachers, at all levels, to develop expertise and confidence in diagnosing student difficulties.

This book uses evidence-based, peer-reviewed intervention strategies that help teachers to:

  • understand how mathematical concepts and processes are constructed and connected
  • overcome mathematical misconceptions and inappropriate ways of thinking
  • plan and implement appropriate intervention programs to build students’ competence and confidence.

In addition to the numeration, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions screening tests from the first edition of Building Numeracy, this second edition also includes an early number screening interview and problem solving tests.

Building Numeracy is an Oxford Teacher Reference title.
