Mathematics teaches us how to make sense of the world around us through developing a child's ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems. It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives. Through their growing knowledge and understanding, children learn to appreciate the contribution made by many cultures to the development and application of mathematics.
The aims of mathematics are:
- To develop, maintain and stimulate pupils' curiosity, interest and enthusiasm for learning through practical activity, exploration and discussion;
- To promote confidence and competence with numbers and the number system;
- To develop the ability to solve problems through decision-making and reasoning in a range of contexts;
- To develop a practical understanding of the ways in which information is gathered and presented;
- To explore features of shape and space, and develop measuring skills in a range of contexts;
- To enable all pupils to have equal access to mathematics and to experience success in their work.
