  • More Trouble with Maths

This book acknowledges that there are many reasons why children and adults are unable to function mathematically. Difficulties include problems with rote learning basic facts and procedures, debilitating anxiety, poor working and short-term memories, and mathematics vocabulary.

Central to this new edition is a range of standardised tests and diagnostic activities, including a 15-minute test of basic mathematics, a thinking style test, tests of basic fact retrieval and maths anxiety. Guiding the reader in the interpretation of tests, this new edition shows how identifying the barriers to learning is the first step in a programme of intervention.

Written in an engaging and user-friendly style, Steve Chinn draws on his extensive experience and expertise to:

  • show how to consider and appraise the many factors relating to mathematical learning difficulties
  • explain how these factors can be investigated
  • explore their impact on learning mathematics

Emphasising the need for a clinical approach when assessing individuals, this book shows how diagnosis and assessment can become integrated into everyday teaching. This highly practical and relevant resource is crucial for anyone who wants to accurately and effectively identify the depth and nature of mathematical learning difficulties and dyscalculia.
