The maths curriculum aims to develop our students into becoming natural problem solvers. They will understand the application of mathematics beyond the classroom. Our curriculum enables us to think more deeply and intuitively about the wider world.
Mathematics is an important creative discipline that helps us to understand and change the world. We want all students to experience the beauty, power and enjoyment of mathematics and develop a sense of curiosity about the subject and it’s application throughout each learners life.
We strongly believe that all students can achieve in mathematics, and teach for secure and deep understanding of mathematical concepts through manageable steps. We use mistakes and misconceptions as an essential part of learning and provide challenge through rich and sophisticated problems. Students develop as true masters of content, applying and being creative with new knowledge in multiple ways.
The study of mathematics is not just about learning the core content, but also about supporting students to think logically and approach problems with resilience and a variety of strategies. A firm grasp of the key concepts and processes in mathematics is essential to equip our young people to flourish in day-to-day life by providing them with the skills and confidence to carry out everyday tasks with greater ease, from budgeting to computing.
Students who are comfortable and confident with mathematics are able to develop critical thinking skills, enabling them to effectively problem solve and to arrive at logical solutions. Young people who leave school with these skills are better equipped to be numerate in multiple settings across society and are able to flourish in a variety of fields.
Curriculum Theological Underpinnings
“This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high. Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit high all round. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.”
The construction of the ark was mathematically explained to Noah before the actual building of it.
