The aims of teaching maths at Newbridge Junior School are in line with the three main aims of the maths curriculum
- To develop fluency and mathematical efficiency. Children should be able to work carefully through year group appropriate calculations and be able to select the most efficient method to do this.
- To develop problem solving. Once skills have been established, children should be able to apply this in a problem solving context. This offers children a real life example of the mathematics they are learning and ensures a deeper understanding.
- To develop reasoning. The ability to explain the mathematics they are using is a true evidence of a child’s understanding of a mathematical concept. Children should be able to explain their thinking, make connections between different ideas and hypothesis based on their mathematical knowledge.
