Recommended Posts


Given im not from Clydebank and I'm talking about teachers from Dumbarton then your 'witty' response really isnt very 'witty'.

Long division isn't taught anymore. I was taught it in P4. There is a division algorithm used in AH, and it takes a bit of explaining given that they've barely been taught what division is these days.
The courses nowadays have been dumbed down to a shadow of the exams sat a generation ago. I doubt that the Universities have dumbed down the path to being a doctor or whatever, so where are the gaps filled in?


Judging what you and others have posted, primary sounds pretty grim in Scotland.

I have taught long division in Year 3/4. As for division itself - I would expect a child in Year 1 to be secure in the concept and apply it. This was pretty standard when I taught Year 1.

A question for teachers, my Maths teacher says if we get how surds work then we should do well in Nat 5, is this true?

I feel like some of the other people in my maths who need it explained a bit more sometimes don't get the help they need although this could be due to higher expectations as we're the top class.

Do we have a maths teacher at hand to check the working? (Or has someone at least got the back page of the book where the bloody answers are)

Agree with the shouts that an extraordinarily high number of posters here are teachers. A job that I don't think I could do, after seeing family members work their arses off. Kudos to yous.

No surprise that Tony boy chucked it though.

Don't bother with that shite.
Maths is useless in real life.

I've got four skipping ropes but it has never occurred to me to use any of them to garrot a child. Honest.

Maths is fantastic and useful and should be taught to the exclusion of pointless subjects like art, history, music, RE, modern studies etc. etc.


STEM degrees are fascism.
