Mathematics

Mathematics is used in all aspects of everyday life and provides tools for many of the practical activities associated with business and commerce, architecture, communication, technology and engineering as well as for the exact sciences.

We aim to ensure that all pupils.

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that pupils have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • Reason mathematically.
  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems.

The children are taught and practise basic concepts, skills and operations. There are also opportunities for creative, investigative and problem-solving activities. Mathematical activity offers scope for reasoning and the use of imagination. Children learn that problems may be solved in more than one way and that sometimes there is more than one solution thus fostering a culture of perseverance. It also provides opportunities for speaking and listening using precise language. Thus, skills learnt can be transferred to other disciplines.
