Mathematics Curriculum Intent

The mathematics curriculum is built to ensure that all students have the mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills to fulfil their hopes and dreams in the world beyond.    The aim of the mathematics curriculum is to develop students’ knowledge, skills and understanding of the following mathematical concepts:

• number;
• algebra;
• geometry;
• statistics;
• probability.

By studying these concepts students will become fluent, be able to reason mathematically making deductions, inferences and conclusions in order to solve increasingly complex problems over time.

It is important that pupils develop both conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately, as confidence with mathematical reasoning is essential for all pupils’ future
