Solve a Problem

Here in Scoil San Treasa, we are justifiably proud of our high standards in numeracy.

As per our consultation process with parents after the National Strategy for Literacy and Numeracy was launched, we are continuing to give added focus to aspects of the Maths programme right throughout the school - on an ongoing basis - including the following areas: problem-solving, boosting further the positive attitude to Maths, oral and mental Maths, the language of Maths and linking Maths with the real world and practical, everyday activities.

With this in mind, intermittently throughout the year, we post three ‘problems’ on the school website.

  • one for Juniors (restricted to pupils from Infants to Second Class),
  • one for the Whole School (open to all pupils) and
  • one Challenge (a particularly ‘challenging’ problem, as the name suggests, for any pupil to try!)
