Numeracy

Mathematics teaches us how to make sense of the world around us through developing a child’s ability to calculate, to communicate, to reason and to solve problems.

Teaching and Learning

Maths across the Curriculum

Although the mathematics curriculum is organised as a discrete subject, there are many potential cross-curricular activities.  Making links between areas of learning deepens children’s understanding by providing opportunities to reinforce and enhance learning.  Learning is enhanced by:

  • Giving further opportunities to practise taught skills in a purposeful way in other areas of the curriculum.
  • Providing real experiences, context and meaning for the development of core mathematical skills.
  • Assisting memory through providing opportunities for children to use skills in a different context.
  • Providing opportunities for the application of knowledge in new contexts, to involve children in higher order thinking skills, such as reasoning and problem solving.
  • Providing opportunities for learners to recognise and develop key aspects of learning, e.g. looking for patterns and relationships, problem solving and reasoning.
