Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that promotes skills essential to everyday life. Our curriculum ensures the progressive development of mathematical understanding, enabling students to gain fluency in mathematical ideas and connections that aim to provide a foundation for understanding the world. The curriculum aims to develop students’ ability to think logically and systematically alongside conceptual understanding, fluency and rigour in problem-solving. The curriculum also provides all the ingredients to help students appreciate the beauty of mathematics around us.
Our curriculum content is stretching for all students. We use precise and engaging teaching to ensure that students’ mathematical thinking and reasoning are at a consistently high standard. We also implement a range of enrichment opportunities in mathematics to both promote super-curricular knowledge and skills and to develop further students’ understanding of the world of mathematics beyond the classroom.
The curriculum teaches content through the interleaving of topics, which exposes students to the connections between the different areas of mathematics and their problem-solving skills in increasingly complex work. Interleaving also strengthens students’ conceptual understanding and promotes the recall and application of prior knowledge to ensure high mathematical accuracy and fluency levels.
