Mathematics Curriculum Overview
Team Vision
Mathematics will deliver a Rigorous Academic Curriculum that aspires to give students a lifelong love for problem solving and numbers. It will provide the skills to find solutions to a wide range of scenarios, give students an understanding of a broad range of Mathematics disciplines in preparation for the world of work; demonstrate how Mathematics is an integral part of everyday life and instrumental across a range of other subjects; and prepare students for their futures by ensuring they have mastered the knowledge they require and have the skill set to apply it.
Curriculum Intent
Every student is challenged to be the best mathematician they can be. Teachers are expected to explain concepts in context, using realworld examples where possible. Mistakes are celebrated routinely as an opportunity for everyone to learn. Students make progress in Number, Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, Probability, Ratio and Proportion by embedding essential knowledge and skills through their knowledge organisers; reinforcing their understanding through the use of targeted home learning; revisiting key ideas before building on them in lessons; exploring the links between different branches of Mathematics and experiencing topics in different contexts. Teachers and students have a transparent set of success criteria for every Unit of Work and should be able to articulate how these can be met. Underpinning our curriculum is the intent of promoting the automaticity of essential skills as they are the buildingblocks to problemsolving.
