The aim of Mathematics education is to develop a belief in the value of Mathematics and to develop in students the skills, concepts, understandings and attitudes that will enable them to cope confidently with the Mathematics they will encounter in the future. We need to help students achieve the mathematical and statistical literacy necessary in a society which is technologically orientated and information rich.
In keeping with the curriculum, the emphasis is on a balanced approach to Mathematics learning, incorporating problem solving with the mastery of basic skills. Mathematics is for all students regardless of ability, background, gender or ethnicity and the School provides programmes that acknowledge these important factors.
Mathletics is an online learning platform that helps students explore mathematical concepts, enjoy maths and improve their results. All students receive a Mathletics login and tasks are set each week to support curriculum learning.
