Did you know that talking about maths problems is beneficial for students learning maths?

When children enjoy writing or doing maths, they actually grow in confidence and enjoy learning more. They feel comfortable thinking and talking about maths.
Talking about mathematics improves reasoning skills and helps children understand why a solution works, rather than just memorising and rote learning. Structured group work develops individuals' competence in solving problems.
