Summary Note "The new edition of Peter Westwood's best-selling 'Numeracy and learning difficulties' addresses recent initiatives around the teaching of numeracy, the increased focus on numeracy standards, and international research around numeracy teaching, learning and pedagogy. Drawing on research from the fields of developmental and cognitive psychology, Peter Westwood presents a case for high-quality 'first teaching' to prevent students failing in the initial acquisition of numeracy skills. '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 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." - Back cover.
