Maths and Money
A guide to assist teachers to identify mathematical skills needed to particiapte in local community and to plan a program for student.
The following package has been developed as a result of numerous requests form teachers for guidance with the mathematics curriculum for the student with Down syndrome. It is envisaged that the continuum should be used as a guide only, giving consideration to: the student's preferred learning style: the students interests and needs: family circumstances and needs: teacher's focus and teaching style. Due to a number of specific learning difficulties that are common to the student with Down syndrome, the acquisition of many mathematical concepts will be delayed. Therefore it is imperative that the student's individual maths program focuses on the life skills needed to participate in their local community. The maths continuum has been developed as a guide to assist teachers to identify these skills and plan a sequential program.
NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
