Mathematics: Year 1 • Year 2

This section provides guidance on how ICT can be used effectively to support interactive whole class teaching during the daily mathematics lesson.

ICT can enhance mathematical modelling and improve the quality of interactions during whole class teaching. Using ICT enables the teacher to increase the pace of the lesson when appropriate and can help redress the balance in making resources and planning for teaching.

It is important to note that although ICT can be used effectively to support interactive whole class teaching it should only be used when it contributes to the specific development of mathematics objectives. ICT should be used to complement alternative teaching and learning strategies such as the use of practical apparatus, digit cards, number fans, counters dice.
