Maths Recovery Instruction

Maths Recovery Instruction is problem-based and from a constructivist perspective thus fitting with Ireland’s Maths curriculum. Emphasis is placed on students reflecting on their own mathematical thinking. Direct and intensive teaching is a key feature of the instructional approach.

Maths Recovery instruction focuses initially on developing

  • a facility with number words and number word sequences,
  • the ability to recognise, identify and write numerals,
  • emerging strategies for adding and subtracting,
  • emerging knowledge of hundreds, tens and ones,
  • emerging methods of notation in arithmetic, and,
  • early multiplication and division.
