This course will outline ways in which maths education can be made accessible, relatable and enjoyable for children. The Action Research Model will be used to outline the key areas of maths that children do not find enjoyable and from this a comprehensive action plan will be designed. A journey of self-discovery will ensue as teachers and facilitators reflect on their own educational values and the impact they have on their practice.
There will be an outline of methodologies, skills and knowledge that can be applied to help develop children’s attitude towards maths and their enjoyment of the subject.
This will be done while enabling children to build confidence in themselves and their mathematical ability along the way.
1.) Recognise the importance of agency in the primary classroom, its role in promoting a positive attitude towards mathematics and an appreciation of both its practical and its aesthetic aspects.
2.) Establish key methodologies that develop problem-solving abilities and facilitate the application of mathematics to everyday life.
3.) Implement an action plan in the classroom that aids the development of a positive attitude towards maths education.
