The primary focus of the teaching of mathematics should be to challenge the student to think, to question, to investigate and to apply knowledge and skills appropriately. Where possible, the schemes of work provide many real life applications and situations that can be used by the classroom teacher.
The essential skills as outlined in the New Zealand Mathematics Curriculum document should also be factored into classroom management and teaching programmes to encourage the cooperative nature of work that many of our students will encounter in the future, whether mathematics based or not. Key competencies are incorporated into all teaching programmes.
