An investigatory approach to learning the skills of problem solving with an international focus.
These resources for primary maths are informed by the most up-to-date teaching philosophies based on research from around the world. They aim to support teachers to help all learners become confident and successful mathematicians through a fun and engaging course. Through an investigatory approach, children learn the skills of problem solving in the context of the other mathematical strands in the course (number, handling data, measure and geometry). The course will encourage learners to be independent thinkers with the confidence to tackle a wide range of problems and who understand the value and relevance of their mathematics. Classroom discussion is encouraged to help learners become good mathematical communicators, to justify answers and to make connections between ideas.
