You
need to look for opportunities for drawing mathematical
experience out of a wide range of children's activities.
Mathematics contributes to many subjects of the curriculum,
often in practical ways. Activities such as recording the
growth of a plant or an animal, measuring temperature and
rainfall, or investigating the cog wheels in a bicycle can
provide data or starting points for discussion in your
mathematics lessons as well as opportunities to apply and use
mathematics in real contexts

lessons can help to develop and support pupils'
literacy skills: for example, by teaching mathematical
vocabulary and technical terms, 

Almost
every scientific investigation or experiment is likely
to require one or more of the mathematical skills of
classifying, counting, measuring, calculating,
estimating, and 
by asking children to
read and interpret problems to identify the mathematical content, and
by
encouraging them to explain, argue and present their
conclusions to others. Equally,
English lessons can support your mathematics lesson.
For example nonfiction texts can be chosen in which
mathematical vocabulary, graphs, charts and tables
have to be interpreted.

recording in tables and graphs. In
science pupils will, for example, order numbers,
including decimals, calculate
means and percentages,
use negative numbers when taking temperatures,
substitute into formulae, rearrange equations, decide
which graph is the most appropriate to represent data,
and plot, interpret and predict from graphs.

Measurements
are often needed in art and design and technology.
Many patterns and constructions are based on spatial
ideas and properties of shapes, including symmetry.


Children
will apply and use mathematics in a variety of ways
when they solve problems using ICT. For example, they
will collect and classify data, enter it into data

Designs may need enlarging or reducing, introducing
ideas of multiplication and ratio.

interpret and explain their results. Their work in

distance and angle, using uniform non standard then
standard measures. When they use computer models and
simulations they will draw on their abilities to
manipulate numbers and identify patterns and
relationships.

In
history and geography children will collect data by
counting and measuring and make use of measurements of
many kinds. The study of maps includes the use of
coordinates and ideas of angle, direction, position,
scale and ratio.

draw children's attention to the links between
subjects by talking frequently about them, both in
Mathematics and in other lessons.
