Mathematics

“Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about understanding.” –William Paul Thurston

Our aims are to:

 

  • Develop a positive attitude towards mathematics, through the delivery of interesting, enjoyable and challenging lessons, homework and other tasks
  • Develop competence and confidence in mathematical knowledge, concepts and skills
  • Encourage children to think logically and work systematically and accurately in order to solve problems
  • Enable children to work independently and collaboratively
  • Enable children to apply what they know and understand in unfamiliar and real-life situations
  • Encourage children to seek help when required, ask and answer questions and communicate effectively with both peers and adults

 

Helping your child with maths

 

Try to make maths as much fun as possible - games, puzzles and jigsaws are a great way to start. It's also important to show how we use maths skills in our everyday lives and to involve your child in this.

 

Identifying problems and solving them can also help your child develop maths skills. If you see your child puzzling over something, talk about the problem and try to work out the solution together.

 

Don't shy away from maths if you didn’t like it at school. Try to find new ways to enjoy the subject with your child.

 

Tips for helping your child to enjoy maths:

  • Point out the different shapes to be found around your home.

  • Take your child shopping and talk about the quantities of anything you buy.

  • Let your child handle money and work out how much things cost.

  • Look together for numbers on street signs and car registration plates.

  • Give your child real life problems to solve e.g. bus timetables, TV schedule
