Maths
Subject overview
Our aim is to develop students as Mathematicians through the study of number, ratio and proportion, algebra, shape and measures and data handling.
Students develop their abilities to use and apply standard techniques,
 recalling facts, terminology and definitions,
 using and interpreting notation and accurately carrying out procedures or tasks requiring multi step solutions.
Students also develop their ability to reason, interpret and communicate mathematically,
 Making deductions, inferences and drawing conclusions
 Interpreting and communicating information accurately
 Presenting arguments and proofs
Students also develop problem solving skills within mathematics and other contexts
 Translating problems in mathematical or nonmathematical contexts into a process or series of processes
 Making connections between different areas of mathematics
 Interpreting results within the context of the problem
 Evaluating the methods used
