Maths is not just about number problems and building an in depth understanding and strong foundation in numbers and concepts such as capacity, weight and shape is very important to us here at NSAIS Pudong. We do this through teacher input and play and ensure to set up mathematical learning opportunities throughout our environment.
Children learn mathematical concepts in role play areas for example in the shop or the bakery. There may be mathematical challenges in the sand or water trays. At home, you too can make maths fun through everyday activities such as setting the table or cooking and baking. Bath time is also another great opportunity for mathematical learning.
