In Maths we try to engage all our students. We focus on students working with different groups and encourage them to form new ’working’ relationships within lessons.
Students will not only be learning the Maths skills needed but will focus on other skills, such as communication, presentation and listening. These skills are widely used outside the classroom and will be needed for future development and employment.
Topics covered in Years 7 and 8
Maths topics are extremely varied in Years 7 and 8, covering over 20 different topics, such as;
Forming and solving equations
Reading and interpreting graphs
Stating properties of shapes and calculating area and volume.
In their maths lessons students learn how the methods work, how to apply them and practice problem solving skills.
Topics covered in Years 9, 10 and 11
GCSE is very different to previous years. The new curriculum has started and the year 9 and 10 students are covering the new Maths qualification using the AQA board which involves more problem solving elements and the application of Maths. Due to these changes our Students should expect to learn how to communicate their Maths skills, through clear working out and proof in order to demonstrate a deeper understanding in the topic.
