### Measures Handbook - PDST Numeracy

This manual has been designed by members of the Professional Development Service for Teachers. The aim of this Teacher’s Handbook is to assist teachers in teaching the strand of Measures (infants to 6th

intended to complement and support the implementation of the Primary School Mathematics Curriculum
(PSMC) rather than replace it.
