We teach Maths to
- Develop logical thought processes in our learners so that they are better able to select the most appropriate method to solve a mathematical problem.
- Develop critical thinking skills, in that students are able to question the presentation and validity of data around them, to not take newspaper headlines or social media headlines that use statistics at face value, allowing learners to see that mathematics is a part of everyday life.
- Equip learners with the functional skills that will be used every day, such as financial skills, so that our learners can make financially responsible decisions allowing learners to see that mathematics is a part of everyday life.
- Tackle misconceptions within mathematics through deeper understanding of mathematical concepts.
- Regularly revisit and extend mathematical skills and concepts so that mathematical fluency is developed.
- To allow our learners to be able to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including unfamiliar contexts and to model real-life scenarios.
- To allow our learners to reason mathematically. Following a line of enquiry to develop and present a justification using argument or proof supported by mathematical language.
