Hi. I'm on a final year trainee teacher placement after easter, with a year five class. I've seen the resources the school uses but I'm allowed to branch out and use other things as well. A lot of people on my course have recommended investing in a copy of the maths on targets books. Can anyone who has used this before, advise me on this please? How effective is it and what kind of approach does it take to learning mathematics? My placement school adopts a problem solving based approach and like the pupils to be provided with opportunities to learn independently so will the maths on target books fit in nicely please or not? I'm in a class where there is such a wide range of abilities and as a trainee teacher, I'm always on the lookout for new and effective resources I can use to enhance my own practice. Thanks in advance for your replies.
