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.

Targets for further development

Teachers are constantly engaged in target setting, for example when assessing and marking children's work, when keeping records and when evaluating their own performance. Target setting is seen as a positive step towards ensuring progress and raising attainment. As your own training gets under way, you might well be asked to set targets for yourself. Targets will almost certainly be set for you!

Formally record your targets for further development below. Make clear and specific reference to areas within your self-audit and mathematics test that require attention. Don't forget to indicate where, when and how the targets will be achieved.
