Mathematics equips pupils with uniquely powerful ways to describe, analyse and change the world. It can stimulate moments of pleasure and wonder for all pupils when they solve a problem for the first time, discover a more elegant solution, or notice hidden connections. Pupils who are functional in mathematics are able to think independently in applied and abstract ways, and can reason, solve problems and assess risk.
Mathematics is a creative discipline. The language of mathematics is international. The subject transcends cultural boundaries and its importance is universally recognised. Mathematics has developed over time as a means of solving problems and also for its own sake.
Teachers aim to give students confidence in their mathematical ability. We also encourage them to enjoy their lessons. With this in mind, different teaching styles are adopted by all teachers. Students are encouraged to discuss their ideas, take part in paired or group work and use the mathematics that they learn and apply it to problem solving activities.
