Numeracy

Putting mathematical knowledge and understanding to constructive use has been one of the decisive factors in shaping societies. Engineering, science, technology and business rely upon mathematics and continue to find new applications for mathematics. Cultural development and artistic endeavour are influenced by mathematics. Each of us uses mathematical skills and concepts in everyday life. To face the challenges of the 21st century, each young person needs to have confidence in using mathematical skills, and Scotland needs both specialist mathematicians and a highly numerate population. We teach mathematics in such a way that children understand through activity. The workbooks and textbooks provide practical, relevant examples incorporating real life situations as well as allowing pupils to progress at their own level. Continuous assessment is also carried out.
