Mathematics and Numeracy
Mathematics and Numeracy is an Area of Learning in the curriculum. It gives children a wider understanding of how the world around them works and prepares them for making decisions, solving problems and processing everyday information.
Teachers should enable children to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in:
- Processes in Mathematics
- Shape and Space
- Handling Data.
All of these are connected, but Processes in Mathematics should be at the heart of all Mathematics and Numeracy learning. These processes focus on how children learn rather than on the content that they cover.
