Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. (National Curriculum 2014).

At Harworth Church of England Academy, we aim to help all pupils to reach their full potential in mathematics by increasing their knowledge and understanding so that pupils learn to understand and apply their knowledge to solve real life problems.

 

Aims and objectives:

  • to meet the statutory requirements of the New National Curriculum 2014
  • to develop positive attitudes towards mathematics and life- long learning
  • to embed a consistent approach to the teaching of mathematics
  • to develop competence and confidence in mathematical knowledge, concepts and skills
  • to develop the ability to think logically and solve problems
  • use the ‘language’ of maths
  • to develop the ability to use and apply mathematics across the curriculum and in real life To stimulate interest in the subject, to be aware of the fascination of mathematics and to encourage the study of it for its own sake.
  • to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down.
  • to give pupils the attitude, skills and adaptability needed to apply their mathematics in situations across the curriculum and in their everyday lives.
