STEM: Using Mathematics

STEM Incentivising Innovation: Using Mathematics

This resource follows on from the success of our Incentivising Innovation programme in previous years. We worked with seven teachers from a variety of post-primary schools to find new and innovative ways to promote teaching and learning in Mathematics across the curriculum.

The main aim was to affect change in the classroom, creating a shift in behaviours by making learning Mathematics more relevant and enjoyable, and to share this with teachers across Northern Ireland.

Using Mathematics Today’s world is rapidly changing, not least because of advances in technology. This means that the demand for the M in STEM continues to increase. The Northern Ireland curriculum is cognizant of this and has the use of Mathematics as a cross-curricular skill right across the various Areas of Learning that make up the curriculum.
