The underlying philosophy of Maths Eyes is that mathematics is everywhere. The omnipresence of mathematics provides glorious opportunities for human beings at all stages of their lives. The description of mathematics as a “most useful, fascinating and stimulating division of human knowledge” in the Primary School Curriculum 1999 is most appropriate. Children have the capacity to luxuriate in the creative activity, in the investigative nature, in the sense of awe, wonder and excitement of mathematics when they are permitted to imbibe its essence and to experiment with its everyday possibilities.
Using a resource pack such as Maths Eyes in conjunction with the primary school curriculum will enable Irish children to engage in critical thinking, to develop problem solving skills and to become rigorous investigators on a par with their contemporaries anywhere in the world.
