Approaches and methodologies

Changes in the maths curriculum

The main changes in methodology are:

  • More emphasis on guided discussion
  • Hands-on-approach from infants to sixth class

    Discussion skills:

    • Turn taking
    • Active listening
    • Positive response to the opinions of others
    • Confidence in putting forward an opinion
    • Ability to explain clearly their point of view

      Teachers will notice that the changes in the maths curriculum covered both content and methodology. New topics have been introduced and other topics have been omitted, repositioned or given a new emphasis in the curriculum. It is hoped that these new emphases will lead to an enhancement of the child’s mathematical education and to a heightened pleasure and interest in the subject.
