In this publication Steve Chinn has used both his knowledge and research to describe successful approaches and practices that will help children succeed in mathematics. This booklet has focused on all the important elements that are fundamental to supporting these children allowing them to understand basic concepts in mathematics. His thoughts on cognition and meta-cognition, coupled with his comprehensive views of maths skills and cognitive style, clearly show how his methods have had such positive results.

Each chapter has given special attention to vital key factors that all children struggling with mathematics will find helpful. Every factor is explained clearly, reinforced with illustrations and where appropriate described under the following headings, ‘Vocabulary and language’, Images, Symbols and concepts’, ‘Meta-cognition’, often followed by a specific task to practise the concept just taught. Steve has sought to assist and enhance the knowledge of those struggling with mathematics and has produced an excellent publication that will be greatly welcomed by teachers and educationalists working within this specialist field.

  1. Useful help for parent 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jan 2017

    As a parent of a child struggling with maths this book has really helped me to understand different ways that I can help him. I do think this should be required reading for all Maths teachers. I'm not a teacher and did find some of the terminology used in the first couple of chapters a bit out of my depth but once into the practical stuff it was very well explained. I would have given 5 stars but the book was full of typing errors which in some cases made following it harder than it was.

  2. Just started but seems excellent so far.... 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Dec 2016

    As per the title. It's a new venture for me personally, I've never had any form of testing but an online set of questions lead to the purchase of this book. I think it's a little daft/shooting yourself in the foot by not attempting to work something out about yourself for as little as a few pounds (It's a packet of cigs/few pints less)........when the value added at the other end could be greater.

  3. A good starting point 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Nov 2016

    Neat clear chapters in easy language and good references

  4. Dyscalculia advice - all in one place 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Oct 2016

    It is so difficult to find practical strategies to use with students. This book provides this clearly using step by step illustrations. Useful for both students / parents and professionals.

  5. Excellent service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jan 2016

    Excellent book summarising key information by an authoritive author. Arrived promptly

  6. Help, At Last! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2015

    As a retired teacher, latterly of pre-school children, and now grandma to a dyscalculia child (in Oz!), I found the book both informative and instructive and extremely clear. Maths teaching was never included in my original training! and although I became a good basic Maths teacher (I understood what the pupils could not understand), I had a re-training course for Pre-Schoolers to thank for my ultimate grounding in Maths.
    Oh, that this book had been available years ago.
    My pre-school Maths problems came largely from parents who think that an ability to count out loud to 20 foretells another Einstein .......... so my 'concrete' Maths was probably regraded as way-out.
    The book has now arrived in Australia. Thank you so much.

  7. Clear and succinct 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Mar 2015

    This book gives an interesting and succinct introduction to dyscalculia and demonstrates how to help children children acquire basic numeracy skills. It is easy to read and has clear diagrams to illustrate each step in mathematical calculations. I bought the book in order to help my grandson who really struggles with maths. I only wish that it had been available whilst I was still working as a teacher. Every school should have a copy!
