Mr S Norris
Mathematics provides a way of viewing and making sense of the world. It is used to analyse and communicate information and ideas, and to tackle a range of practical tasks and real-life problems. Mathematics also provides the material and means for creating new imaginative worlds to explore. Our focus is on understanding the processes being performed, which allow the pupils more independence when dealing with mathematical problems.
Our main aims are to be fluent, to reason mathematically and to solve problems. We will do this by:
developing mathematical knowledge and understanding;
developing oral, written and practical skills in a manner which encourages confidence and an ability to apply them in other subject areas and real life situations;
developing a feel for number and an appreciation of mathematical principles;
applying mathematics to everyday situations and by developing an understanding of the part which mathematics plays in the world;
using mathematics as a means of communication with the emphasis on the use of clear and logical expression;
developing methodical working, problem solving and reasoning skills.
