Professional Development for Teachers: Teaching and Assessing Skills in Mathematics

Audrey Simpson

Professional Development for Teachers is a series of handbooks that offer accessible guidance for teachers around the world.

Teaching and Assessing Skills in Mathematics provides clear practical and up-to-date advice on teaching and assessing skills across a range of core subject areas for IGCSE and O Level; the book can also be used by teachers delivering local syllabuses in the subject. Teaching and Assessing Skills in Mathematics offers ideas and strategies for effective classroom practice, the setting of coursework, assessing students' work and the integration of different skills. Readers can 'dip into' the book to read up on a particular topic or approach and the material is relevant to both new and experienced teachers alike. All authors in the Professional Development for Teachers series are experienced teachers, teacher trainers and examiners.
