Development of Mathematical Abilities in Children

Course Duration:  44 hours

Numeracy is a core skill that children need to attain during primary and secondary schooling.
At the Primary level, teachers should use different methods and approaches when teaching mathematics, since the students' capabilities vary.
This diversity is institutionally acknowledged by the existence of the Maths support team within the Department of Curriculum. This team aims to aid students since “no single textbook or scheme can ever be the only resource used in class to be able to provide a quality mathematics education.” (Casha Sammut)
With all of this in mind, LSEs are required to know these different methodologies. In collaboration with the teacher, they should provide opportunities for students to explore the world of numeracy and mathematics at their own pace.
