"Children and adults with Down syndrome vary widely in their interest and achievements in number skills and mathematics.. Typically, the achievements of individuals with Down syndrome in number are at a lower level than their achievements in literacy. However, there is a wide range of progress and while some children find number difficult, other children with Down syndrome enjoy mathematics. When a child is interested, motivated and taught well, he or she may achieve at an age appropriate level in primary school... This module describes the steps in learning about number so that children with Down syndrome receive sufficient teaching and practice for learning these skills while they are at primary school and it includes examples of children's work and achievements. After basic skills have been mastered, a selection of activities for learning more advanced skills are described... Inclusion in the mathematics curriculum and the necessity for language teaching are emphasised. This module links with the overview module (ID 31032) which presents and discusses on number for children with Down syndrome and the implications for teaching and learning." - SUMMARY
