Increasingly maths, unlike its partner core curriculum subjects, is becoming an isolated activity. Both the Cambridge Primary Review and Primary Curriculum Review suggest that it should remain an independent subject. While there is a good argument for this, the reality is that maths, more than most subjects, has the potential for real-life application. It is when maths is translated into real terms that it suddenly moves from theoretical understanding to one of useful application. Learning the time, for example, is quite tricky if there is no particular focus other than the mechanics of learning. However, if you place this classroom objective into a real-life situation, such as marking break times during the day, then children understand the purpose of the activity and give it due consideration.
