Counting And Understanding Numbers
Being able to count is an extremely important skill for all pupils to accomplish. Counting forms an essential foundation for all aspects of mathematics. For example, 'counting on' is the first strategy used when learning to add. Counting also helps us to make sense of our number system by ordering not only the whole numbers but all other numbers such as positive and negative integers, decimals and fractions. By understanding and utilizing the relationships between numbers we can calculate mentally more efficiently and accurately.
