# Big Maths at Our Lady of the Missions

Big Maths at Our Lady of the Missions Workshop for Parents and Carers 24th August 2017 Aim of Big Maths To support the raising of attainment in mathematics and

numeracy across all stages. Confidence To face the challenges of the 21st century, each young person needs to have confidence in using

mathematical skills. Numbers in Society Football match Planning a holiday Supermarket shopping Mobile phone tariffs Sales Pocket money

Bills Time What is Big Maths? It is a daily programme of mental maths with a strong emphasis on learned facts and developing the mental agility to do something with

these facts. CLIC Four core skills lie at the heart of numeracy. The acquisition of these basic skills allow children to use and apply their knowledge in all areas of Mathematics. This process is known as CLIC

Counting Learn Its Its Nothing New Calculations Counting Children learn to count and to count on. Count round the room from 0 in 1s When one person claps, count backwards

On the next clap, count forwards Make this harder count in 2s, 5s, 10s, 4s Try this at home Count Learn Its A Learn It is a number fact that is learnt so well that it can be recalled instantly,

e.g. 4 + 3 = 7 They are number facts that we need again and again in all areas of numeracy There are 72 number facts pupils should know by the end of Primary 7 Learn Its 72 total recall facts Its Nothing New

Pim is an alien from the planet CLIC. He is used to support the principle that it is irrelevant what the thing is when applying knowledge. Therefore, if we know that 3+4=7, then 3 things + 4 things must be 7 things. There

is no need to count, we can just learn it. Its Nothing New There is no new maths involved when we add multiples of ten together. 30 + 40 = 70 3 tens and 4 tens = 7 tens

So its nothing new that 3 things and 4 things = 7 things 3+4=7 Jigsaw Numbers Jigsaw numbers are just

number bonds. They total a special number in I know the missing our number system, decimal piece e.g. 10, 100 or 1000. I know the missing I know the missing piece to 1000

I know the missing piece to 100 I know the missing piece to the next multiple of 10 I know the missing piece to 10

Jigsaw Numbers Multiplying by multiples of 10 Switchers/ Fact Families What is a switcher? 3+4=7 So what is 4 + 3 = ? What is a fact family?

3 x 4 = 12 4 x 3 = 12 12 3 = 4 12 4 = 3 Big Maths Characters Meet Squiggleworth! Squiggleworth, the

Place Value Pet! What is that squiggle worth? 3 300 6

7 60 7 Wheres Mully? Meet Mully Multiple! He likes to explore and to hide behind the biggest multiple of a

number he can find. Wheres Mully? significantly enhances the pupils knowledge of multiples and how known multiples can be added to find new multiples. At the same time, pupils are actually becoming proficient at division! Poms Words

Pom is an alien. He lives with Pim on the planet CLIC. Pom has several features that help children learn 4 key mathematical words: multiple, factor, square and prime. Beat That! Time for a test.

What Can I Do to Help My Child? Talk to your child about their experiences, e.g. a trip to the shops how many numbers? Fun maths tasks e.g. Dividing chocolate bars Help with recipes/ TV guides/ newspapers/ magazines Have fun with numbers (websites) Number puzzles e.g. Sudoku Websites to support numeracy
