Mathematics is all around us. We use it every day for a wide range of purposes; from deciding on the sequence in which we dress ourselves, to calculating how much time we have available for an activity.

Number is just one component of mathematics but the ability to use it confidently and competently is essential to life in the 21st century; from managing one’s finances, to calculating time and distance, to knowing how many followers one has on social media.

The views that people hold of themselves as mathematicians, and their attitudes to mathematics in general, are formed early in life. It is important that we early childhood teachers provide children with mathematical experiences that are meaningful, engaging, and in context.

readilearn mathematics activities are designed to support you in doing so by providing a range of digital and printable resources that encourage mathematical thinking and discussion alongside hands-on experiences.

    This is so very true. Mathematics is such a beautiful subject, if introduced as a practical way of living. Often it ends up mugging formulae , tables , shortcuts to speed up calculations ….all with singular aim to pass exams. It is important to push the concepts keeping real life scenarios during the early age for the children to develop a love for it.
    It is great that readilearn is focussing towards the same.
