What is the purpose of the booklet?
This booklet has been produced to give guidance to pupils, parents and teachers on how certain common Numeracy topics are taught in mathematics and throughout the school. Staff from all departments have been consulted during its production and will be issued with a copy of the booklet. It is hoped that using a consistent approach across all subjects will make it easier for pupils to progress.
How can it be used?
If you are helping your child with their homework, you can refer to the booklet to see what methods are being taught in school. Look up the relevant page for a step by step guide. Pupils have been issued with their own copy and can use the booklet in school to help them solve number and information handling questions in any subject.
The booklet includes the Numeracy skills useful in subjects other than mathematics. For help with mathematics topics, pupils should refer to their mathematics textbook or ask their teacher for help. If you would like to know what your child is studying in mathematics, please ask to see the Mathematics Pupil Handbook which was issued to your child at the start of the session.
