Co-ordinated Approaches

The following exemplars may be useful for schools when adopting a common approach to various areas of numeracy. It is recommended that the common approach be agreed upon by the maths department first, before being implemented at whole-school level. It is envisaged that these approaches should be used across the curriculum to enhance consistency in the teaching and learning of numeracy across all subjects. The common approaches provided can also be printed out as A3 charts thus creating a numeracy rich environment.
