If you are a primary trainee, you must demonstrate a knowledge of mathematics to be recommended for QTS. This popular, widely recommended text helps you audit your knowledge of mathematics and understand what learning you need to pass your course. A rigorous test helps you identify your strengths and weaknesses and can be revisited at key stages in your course as a tool to monitor and evaluate progress. The fourth edition has been updated in line with the new National Curriculum, includes more information on expanding and developing your knowledge of mathematics and is linked to the newest Teachers’ Standards.
