Using resources effectively is key to supporting children's mathematical learning. This idea is supported by the Primary Strategy, recent initiatives such as Excellence and Enjoyment and the growing emphasis on the need to develop children's thinking skills. This book explores how teachers can use resources effectively and so aid children in their mathematical problem-solving, reasoning and communication.
