Our Curriculum Intent
We believe in a strong, ambitious mathematics curriculum that sparks interest, enthusiasm and curiosity in our students; a curriculum that provides students with the problem-solving skills they need for life, and for future career pathways.
Our curriculum is built with the aims of the national curriculum in mind: that students become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, can reason mathematically and can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems.We aim to develop the skills necessary to enjoy the subject to its full and to maximise their potential in it through:
- Develop conceptual understanding using concrete, pictorial and abstract representations.
- Develop fluency, and the ability to recall and apply knowledge accurately.
- An ability to link different aspects of mathematics to other topic areas, and across the wider curriculum.
- An opportunity to reason mathematically, developing justifications and proof, and making generalisations.
- The ability to communicate their ideas effectively using appropriate vocabulary and mathematical symbols
