### PDST Data & Chance Handbook for Primary Schools

https://www.pdst.ie/sites/default/files/PDST%20Data%20Manual.pdf Added: 31 Mar 2020 Contributor: PDST Resource type: Guide/notes

The following teacher handbook is intended to complement and support the implementation of the Primary School Mathematics Curriculum (PSMC). By providing additional guidance in the teaching and learning of mathematics, the publications attempt to illuminate an instructional framework for enhancing mathematical thinking. This instructional framework advocates methods of eliciting, supporting and extending higher-order mathematics skills such as reasoning; communicating and expressing; integrating and connecting; and applying and problem solving.
