We are launching Stockbridge Counts this year with the aim of increasing mathematical mental agility across the school.
Rationale for Mental Agility
‘The ability to calculate in your head is an important part of mathematics. It is also an essential part of coping with society’s demands and managing everyday events.’
~ City of Edinburgh Council Mental Agility Guidelines 2014
- Stockbridge Counts will focus on daily 10 to 15 minute mental agility at the start of every maths lesson.
- The whole school will focus on each aspect at the same time.
