What is Maths4All?

The Maths4All project, funded by Science Foundation Ireland, presents high-quality activity plans and video examples of mathematics teaching in Irish preschool and primary classrooms.

These activities were designed to align with the content of the draft specification of the new mathematics curriculum which was released for consultation in 2017/2018. The proposed curriculum suggests that the four elements of:

understanding and connecting

communicating

reasoning

applying and problem-solving

are central to mathematical learning. Each of the activity plans is structured to facilitate children’s engagement with these processes and elements.

The video clips provide opportunities for teachers to see good practice in action and also to facilitate reflection on teacher practices that are relevant across all mathematics activities and all age groups. Professional development materials relating to the use of tasks and talk in mathematical activities are also provided.
