Overview

This book is for teachers who are looking for interesting and practical ways to incorporate ICT into their daily lesson plans. It shows how ICT can be used as a tool for mathematics, but more importantly how its proper use can enhance the mathematics being taught. The authors cover all current aspects of ICT and mathematics, including:

  • databases
  • spreadsheets
  • logo and the use of floor turtles and control technology
  • handling of resources including interactive whiteboards
  • management of ICT within the classroom
  • how ICT can be used to present mathematical topics and links to other areas of the curriculum.

With plenty of suggestions on how to use the software and hardware described in the book, this is a useful resource for all primary teachers, particularly subject co-ordinators for ICT and mathematics. It will also be of interest to students on PGCE and Initial Teacher Training courses.
