Maths Policy

 

 

“Mathematics equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world.  Mathematics is a creative discipline. It can stimulate moments of pleasure and wonder when a pupil solves a problem for the first time, discovers a more elegant solution to that problem, or suddenly sees hidden connections.”

 

Aims of Mathematics teaching

 

  • To develop a positive attitude towards numeracy.
  • To develop the perception that numeracy is useful because it provides a means of communication which is powerful, concise and unambiguous.
  • To develop the ability to express ideas clearly, logically and with confidence; verbally, numerically, in writing, using pictures and graphs across all areas of numeracy.
  • To develop an appreciation of the structure of number, together with the acquisition of the necessary strategies and computational skills.
  • To encourage co-operative and collaborative work as well as the ability to work independently.
  • To see relationships and patterns and apply numeracy to practical situations and other areas of the curriculum.
  • To develop pupils’ skills of reasoning, problem solving and fluency in Maths.
  • To develop mastery of Maths, so that children have a good understanding of mathematical skills and concepts and are able to apply these independently in contexts.
