Variety is vital to the success of individuals with teaching jobs
, it has been argued.
The claims were made by Allison Terry, a consultant from the Personal Finance Education Group (PFEG), who was responding to research that said female teachers who fear maths could pass their anxiety on to their pupils.
Ms Terry rubbished the findings saying that the most important thing when it came to teaching the subject was variety.
She highlighted the different learning styles that boys and girls have and said that in order to teach effectively individuals had to accommodate for them.
"A good teacher will incorporate all those elements into a lesson and will make sure that they've got the variety in terms of that kind of aspect and also about different learning styles," she said.
"As ever it is about the effectiveness of the teacher in having that variety."
She also stated that a teacher's use of personal finance, or functional skills as a way to teach mathematics, would benefit school children in the future, because it represents a question that they "want to know the answer to".
Schools secretary Ed Balls has recently stressed the need for children to study money matters so that they can learn the best way to save money and how to pick financial products.
