During each phase of their learning, children have rich opportunities to reason mathematically. Exposure to daily mental and written calculations, enables children to grow in confidence in trying out their own methods, justifying their thoughts and seeking more elegant solutions to practical problems. In solving real life problems the children become efficient in breaking down problems into a series of simple steps. The children enjoy using ‘Mathletics’ an interactive game, which challenges all learners at home and school in different areas of Maths. The children’s persevering nature for solving problems, enables them to achieve well in their learning, equipping them for life.
