This is the homepage for Mathematics & Numeracy

Numeracy is the development and application of mathematics across the curriculum and in real life situations. Skills in numeracy should help children to make informed and responsible choices and decisions throughout their lives.

Throughout the primary school, children should engage in a wide range of purposeful activities which should involve them in different modes of mathematical learning, including playing, exploring and investigating, doing and observing, talking and listening, asking questions, reflecting, drafting, reading and recording.

The sections of the programme for Mathematics and Numeracy interrelate. Processes in Mathematics should pervade the entire programme involving children in using and applying mathematics in practical tasks, real-life problems and within mathematics itself.
