PDST and DEC August Support

Infant Maths (drawing on Ready, Set, Go Maths ideas)

These two workshops target teachers of junior and senior infant classes in addition to support teachers.

The workshops support teachers in the exploration of:

  • The development and acquisition of mathematical skills in the Number strand
  • Mathematical language as central to instruction
  • Use of appropriate mathematical equipment for infants
  • Problem-Solving as a central methodology
  • Self-reflection on existing practice.

The above elements were explored through the lens of the following areas: Sorting, Counting and Numeration, Relationships and Operations, Understanding Number and Addition.
