Written Calculation Teacher's Guide by Steve Mills, Hilary Koll

Written Calculation comprises six Pupil Books, six Answer Books, a Teacher's Guide and a Teacher's Resource Book and uses methods recommended in the National Curriculum. Designed for use at Key Stage 2, each Pupil Book uses 18 carefully structured steps to guide the learner towards full mastery of each written method, supporting them in their national tests and other areas of the National Curriculum. Written Calculation also helps pupils develop confidence and fluency in their learning by practising and embedding place value, number facts and problem solving skills. The importance of estimating and checking answers is also emphasised. This Teacher's Guide contains everything you need to integrate Written Calculation within your school. The series may be used as part of a whole-school approach to written calculation and includes a clear, concise introduction, enabling you to fully implement the series and utilise the teaching notes and resources. Key features include: a comparison of written methods, demonstrating alignment to the National Curriculum; guidance on working through a step, to help develop pupils' conceptual understanding; photocopiable Assessment tests to allow monitoring and assessment of pupils' progress, and a Mixed calculations test to encourage decisions about which operation to use. Planning sections for each of the six books include: Learning objectives - addressing the National Curriculum requirements; Summary of the steps - outlining the contents of each Pupil Book, and Prerequisites and Teaching notes - accompanying each step of the Pupil Books. Free downloads, available from the Written Calculation page of the Schofield & Sims website, enhance the effectiveness of the series. These are updated as necessary to ensure that Schofield & Sims Written Calculation meets the requirements of the National Curriculum.
