## Strands

The Maths Curriculum is divided into smaller sections called Strands

### Number

Each Strand has smaller sections again called Strand Units

### Algebra

Each Strand has smaller sections again called Strand Units

### Shape & Space

Each Strand has smaller sections again called Strand Units

### Measures

Each Strand has smaller sections again called Strand Units

### Data

Each Strand has smaller sections again called Strand Units

## Skills to be Developed

These skills are to be developed over the course of implementing the Maths curriculum

## Curriculum Objectives

to develop a positive attitude towards mathematics and an appreciation of both its practical and its aesthetic aspects to develop problem-solving abilities and a facility for the application of mathematics to everyday life to enable the child to use mathematical language effectively and accurately to enable the child to acquire an understanding of mathematical concepts and processes to his/her appropriate level of development and ability to enable the child to acquire proficiency in fundamental mathematical skills and in recalling basic number facts

## Maths Games

A selection of the games used throughout the school

### 1, 2, 3 Bang

Two children play against each other. A third child calls out a table with the competing children giving the answer and saying 1, 2, 3 bang at the end. The first to do so wins and carries on against others in the class. The "Quizmaster" calling the tables has the final say in any dispute.

### Buzz

The class makes a circle and start counting. Every third number and any number with three in it must be substituted with the word buzz. Anyone making a mistake is out of the game.

### Numero

A card game building from simple recognition of numbers to incorporating all operations based on the class level. Usually played in groups of about four children at a time.

## Problem Solving

Problems solving is the main area of concern for Maths today. Here in Scoil Niocláis we have adopted the R.O.S.E. approach to help us improve our problem solving skills
