Option 4 : Making mathematics part of children's life experiences.

In a mathematics class, students at the primary level enjoy learning, solving problems, develop mathematical curiosity, and become confident in using mathematics to analyze and solve problems.

__Important Points__

The Importance of Mathematics at the Primary Level (NCF 2005): National Curriculum framework, 2005 recommends that teaching of mathematics at the primary level should focus on-

- Helping students to
**connect classroom learning with everyday life**

- Children learn to enjoy Mathematics rather than fear it
- Children pose and solve meaningful problems
- Practical activities related to the environment
- Songs, picture study, games, puzzles, quiz, the narration of events
- Children see mathematics as something to talk about, to communicate through, to discuss among them, to work together, etc.

Hence, we can conclude that **Making mathematics part of children's life experiences** is the most important aspect of teaching mathematics at the primary level.
