Mathematics: Year 1 • Year 2 ~ Stand-alone lessons

ICT can support the learning and teaching of mathematics throughout the daily mathematics lesson. In this section you will find examples of teaching and learning activities which exploit the potential of the interactive whiteboard and other forms of technology. Resources include:

  • Example lesson plans
  • Electronic resource files eg MS Word, Excel files
  • Electronic whiteboard files
  • Examples of planning adapted to incorporate the use of ICT

In all lessons including the use of interactive technology, emphasis should be placed upon:

  • Speaking and listening – ensuring that children discuss and explain their reasoning, justify their conclusions and have the opportunity to talk both with the teacher and other adults and with their peers
  • Problem solving skills and strategies – ensuring that these are modelled and that children have the opportunity to develop and consolidate them in their independent work
