Project Overview. Mathematics and I.C.T. Learning Areas. Levels. Primary 1 – Primary 3 (Levels A and B). Objectives. To provide children with interactive opportunities, to become more adept at mental calculations.
Mathematics and I.C.T.
Primary 1 – Primary 3 (Levels A and B)
The project involves the use of CC3, internet and easi-teach materials to promote daily interactive and mental mathematics for children in P1 – P3. It encourages a questioning, enquiring and formative mind within these children and in turn, it is hoped to give the children transferable skills, to be used across all areas of the curriculum.

At Mossneuk, we recognise the importance of Mental Mathematics within the maths curriculum and curriculum as a whole.
We knew that I.C.T. would be a very beneficial way of developing this, as the HMIE state (within their Use of ICT in Learning and Teaching document),
“Pupils consistently displayed high levels of interest, motivation and enjoyment when involved in ICT-related activities”
As the project is currently underway there has been no evaluation or assessment as yet.
As the project progresses, it will be evaluated through the assessment of children’s skills and work in I.C.T. – formally, informally and formatively.
The project’s success should also be evident through National Assessment results in mathematics – particularly in levels of attainment within the mental sections of the papers.
Teachers will also be questioned on the success (or not) of the use of interactive whiteboards, both within mathematics and other curricular areas.
