ST JOSEPH’S Primary School students were last week left pondering the question – “who knew maths could be so fun?”
Both infants and primary school students participated in the hands on learning program – World of Maths.
The circuit program had them heading from station to station solving a variety of problems.
St Joseph’s targeted maths teacher Sue Flagg said there were several purposes behind the day.
“It’s all problem-solving, they are working together to discover the answers,” she said.
“We want maths to be hands on and engaging, but also fun and challenging.”
St Joseph’s has been working to improve numeracy at the school for some.
The idea has also been to turn maths into a subject students want to learn about and one teachers want to teach.
“Nationally it’s been identified as a subject people don’t like so much,” Mrs Flagg said. “We’re finding our approach is really making a difference for students and teachers.”
