The studying of Mathematics is very important at the Primary level. These are the foundation years on which the future skills will be based. There are certain objectives which we aim to achieve by teaching Math at the Primary Level. They are-
- Numbers and Basic Function
The basic or the primary form of calculations like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are taught to enable the children to form a proper base.
At the end of the Primary education they will be able to recognize the numbers, write their number names, do forward, backward and skip counting with the numbers and compare them in quantities.
- Measurement and Estimation
The students will be able to measure in different capacities of length, weight, height, etc using the different mediums of measurement. They will also be able to measure time, money, days, hours, minutes, etc.
They are exposed to basic shapes and their recognition. Basic construction is also taught. They also become aware of the three dimensional shapes. They also learn about the spatial concepts of under, over, next to and beyond.
- Data Collection and Interpretation
They are able to collect and then sort the data at this age. They learn to plot it on the graph also. They also learn to compare the objects.
- Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
Mathematics should be used to develop critical thinking and problem solving. Presented with a problem or situation, primary students should be able to identify the proper strategies needed to come to conclusions and carry out calculations. Throughout primary school, students should progress from using concrete objects and written calculations to carrying out operations mentally. Children in primary school should also have the ability to identify and continue patterns, provide examples and non-examples of mathematical statements, and form and test hypotheses.
The Major Aims and Objectives
Harmonious development of child’s personality and social efficiency etc. are the general aims of education. If environmental science teaching is to be made effective, then its aims should be in consonance with the general aims of education. We deal with the following main objectives of science teaching.
A. Knowledge. This aim has received the top priority as compared to other aims. Pupils studying general science should acquire the knowledge of:
(i) Fundamental principles and concepts useful in daily life.
(ii) Facts for science study.
(iii) Inter-dependence and relationship of different branches of science.
(iv) Knowledge of plants and animals.
(v) Natural phenomena going on.
(vi) Knowledge of general rules of health and human body etc.
Middle to High School
- Fluent while conversing and at ease with the use of language.
- Uses the syntax properly.
- Has a well developed command over the written language.
- Can convert creative ideas into written essays.
- Can draft all formal means of communication-eg: letter, notice, etc.
- Can participate in debates, extempore and other mediums of expression.
- Through studying biology, chemistry or physics, students should become aware of how scientists work and communicate with each other. While the scientific method may take on a wide variety of forms, it is the emphasis on a practical approach through experimental work that characterizes these subjects.The aims enable students, through the overarching theme of the Nature of science, to:
- Appreciate scientific study and creativity within a global context through stimulating and challenging opportunities.
- Acquire a body of knowledge, methods and techniques that characterize science and technology.
- Apply and use a body of knowledge, methods and techniques that characterize science and technology.
- Develop an ability to analyse, evaluate and synthesize scientific information.
- Develop a critical awareness of the need for, and the value of, effective collaboration and communication during scientific activities.
- Develop experimental and investigative scientific skills including the use of current technologies.
- Develop and apply 21st century communication skills in the study of science.
- Become critically aware, as global citizens, of the ethical implications of using science and technology.
- Develop an appreciation of the possibilities and limitations of science and technology.
- Develop an understanding of the relationships between scientific disciplines and their influence on other areas of knowledge.
- The aims of teaching and learning mathematics are to encourage and enable students to:
- Recognize that mathematics permeates the world around us
- Appreciate the usefulness, power and beauty of mathematics
- Enjoy mathematics and develop patience and persistence when solving problems
- Understand and be able to use the language, symbols and notation of mathematics
- Develop mathematical curiosity and use inductive and deductive reasoning when solving problems
- Become confident in using mathematics to analyse and solve problems both in school and in real-life situations
- Develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to pursue further studies in mathematics
- Develop abstract, logical and critical thinking and the ability to reflect critically upon their work and the work of others
- Develop a critical appreciation of the use of information and communication technology in mathematics
- Appreciate the international dimension of mathematics and its multicultural and historical perspectives.
This subject helps the children to develop-
Awareness of The World and Environment: Lessons in Social Studies related to topics like – My Family, My Neighbourhood, Community Helpers, Early Man, Indus Valley Civilization, Modern Period in Indian History, The French Revolution, Great World Leaders, etc teach students about the various civilizations, movements and renaissances that occurred over the years. This knowledge enables the students to understand how the world and different societies have evolved, the important events that have occurred in the past, enduring ideas and eminent personalities that have created an impact and affected the lives of people both locally and globally. It also helps students to understand how different societies are structured, managed and governed. This in turn helps students to understand their place in the world.
