Incentivising STEM Innovation: Using Mathematics Today’s world is rapidly changing, not least because of advances in technology. This means that the demand for the M in STEM continues to increase. The Northern Ireland curriculum is cognizant of this and has the use of Mathematics as a cross-curricular skill right across the various Areas of Learning that make up the curriculum.

Following the success of CCEA’s Incentivising STEM Innovation programme in previous years, in 2015/16 we worked with seven teachers from a variety of post-primary schools to seek new and innovative ways to promote teaching and learning in Mathematics across the curriculum. The main aim was to affect change in the classroom, creating a shift in behaviours by making learning Mathematics more relevant and enjoyable, and to share this with teachers across Northern Ireland.
