School Based Numeracy

Piaget (1965) states that many second level students still need to be provided with opportunities to engage with suitable experiential resources and supports to consolidate, improve and expand their understanding of mathematics and Numeracy.

This JCSP Numeracy Initiative enables schools to acquire age- appropriate experiential resources and games in mathematics and Numeracy and to use these materials to develop creative approaches to the teaching of mathematics and numeracy to JCSP students.  The following support materials are available: “LUVE 2C You” bookmarks and posters, “Computational Clocks” posters and folder-inserts and maths achievement certificates.

As with all initiatives schools are required to evaluate the activities undertaken in the running of the initiative and are also invited to upload any relevant photographs.
