Supporting SMSC through Mathematics
The Spiritual Child
Mathematics supports spiritual development by engaging children with depth of thinking and problem solving.
The Moral Child
Mathematics supports moral development by encouraging children to look, discuss and evaluate a range of social and moral issues found in the world. This can sometimes draw upon other areas of study, such as history or geography.
The Social Child
Mathematics supports social development by requiring verbal reasoning. Children have opportunities to discuss their learning with their peers.
The Cultural Child
Mathematics supports the cultural development of a child by exposing them to a range of different approaches to solving problems and reasoning skills.
