Why take this course?

  • Be able to employ a range of maths resources and non-standardised assessment tools in a dynamic appraisal process
  • Construct an assessment report and intervention plan for a learner that effectively appraises maths-related difficulties
  • Deliver a tailored teaching intervention that effectively addresses the individual study requirements of a learner with maths-related difficulties
  • Strategically support the development of higher-order reasoning skills in maths learners
  • Critically reflect on observations and experiences of professional practice making links to theory and research
Content overview
  • Selected readings on mathematical development (including dyscalculia) and teaching strategies
