Foundation Phase (Grade R - 3)



Mathematics is the science which defines the world around us in terms of numbers and symbols. It is a language in itself, and it serves us in millions of ways in our daily lives. The mastering of mathematical skills has life-long benefits for children.

Mathematical Skills

The aim of Mathematics is to provide a real understanding of how numbers relate to each other. Thus, it deals with the observing, representing, and investigating of patterns and relationships. Capacities associated with logical and critical thinking, accuracy, problem solving, and decision making are developed.

The practical exercises in Mathematics are very popular with learners. Activities include working with money while shopping, and measuring the children's height.
