“ Mathematics is the study of the properties, relationships and patterns in number and shape, and the application of this knowledge to analyse, interpret, simplify and solve problems. “ Mathematics Covering Paper What is Mathematics?

Number, money and measure • Basic number processes • Measure • Patterns and relationships • Expressions and equations Shape, position and movement • Properties of 2D shapes and 3D objects • Angle, symmetry and transformation Organising the Mathematics Outcomes Information Handling • Data and analysis • Ideas of chance and uncertainty

“ To emphasise that problem solving is fundamental to good learning and teaching in all aspects of mathematics and its applications, problem solving will be addressed within all lines of development rather than appearing as a separate element.” Building the Curriculum 1

Problem Solving in Mathematics Flaubert, Gustave (1821-1880) Since you are now studying geometry and trigonometry, I will give you a problem. A ship sails the ocean. It left Boston with a cargo of wool. It grosses 200 tons. It is bound for Le Havre. The mainmast is broken, the cabin boy is on deck, there are 12 passengers aboard, the wind is blowing East-North-East, the clock points to a quarter past three in the afternoon. It is the month of May. How old is the captain?

I have discussed the important part that numbers play in the world and explored a variety of systems that have been used by civilisations throughout history to record numbers. MTH 114N

Having explored more complex number sequences, including well-known named number patterns, I can explain the rule used to generate the sequence, and apply it to extend the pattern. MTH 221P

Making the best use of CPD time—How much of it genuinely focuses on learning & teaching issues and sharing practice? [“Leaders provide staff development which has a central focus on learning, teaching and meeting needs and their impact on pupils’ achievement. Staff learning is collaborative & collegiate, and led by valued and respected practitioners”] (Dimension 4 Leading Learning : Improving Scottish Education 2006)
