Mathematics

Mathematics provides more than opportunities to calculate, it enables information to be handled and communicated and problems to be solved. Mathematics is used in all aspects of everyday life, allowing us to make sense of the world around us.
Furthermore children need to be confident and competent in their numeracy skills to be able to function responsibly in everyday life and contribute effectively to society.
The mathematics outcomes in A Curriculum for Excellence are outlined within the following organisers:


Number, money and measure
• Basic number processes
• Measure
• Patterns and relationships
• Expressions and equations


Shape, position and movement
• Properties of 2D shapes and 3D objects
• Angle, symmetry and transformation


Information Handling
• Data and analysis
• Ideas of chance and uncertainty

Our main resources in school are Scottish Heinemann Maths and TJ Maths.
We have recently added RM maths , which is an individualised maths program which gives pupils 15 minutes of individualised Maths support a day, exactly matched to their ability, with focus on core skills and Mental Maths.
Our maths learning and teaching is enhanced by the use of EDpaX Interactive software for the whiteboards.
