Mathematics development involves providing children with opportunities to practise
and improve their skills in counting numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction
problems, and to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.
|ELG 11||Numbers: Children count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in
order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using
quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and
count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling,
halving and sharing.
|ELG 12||Shape, space and measures: Children use everyday language to talk about size,
weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and
objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They
explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical
language to describe them.
