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.
Your child can post an entry for any or all of the questions (participation is optional). The problems/challenges posed take a variety of forms and vary in degree of difficulty. Some of the problems are quite perplexing while others are easier to tease out but hopefully all will prompt your child’s problem-solving and thinking skills and whet their appetite for problem solving.
We hope that you will find this to be another useful way of engaging your child with Maths in an enjoyable and thought-provoking way that is not restricted to the classroom or textbook.
