Video Resources for Mathematics


Learning the four operations, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are extremely important.  They form the foundation not only of mathematics, but so much of the world around us.

There is often more than one way to calculate an answer, and in school we allow a child to compute in different ways.  In order to ease this learning though, all teachers in this school will teach the four operations according to our agreed format, as shown in the following videos. We have ‘started’ the videos when the child is ready to begin a more formal recording approach, so it does not show all the necessary learning that needs to take place beforehand to get them to this stage, e.g. counting real things, practising one more or one less from any number.

Obviously we can not possibly demonstrate every stage of each operation, but the following videos, produced by the children themselves, explain how we calculate each operation.  We hope it will help you to understand a little better what we teach.  Perhaps you could use them to help your child understand the methods at home!

If you have any questions, just pop in and ask Mr Flaxbeard, our mathematics subject leader.
