Mathematics

Curriculum Intent

‘Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.’ – Albert Einstein

It is the intention of the St Cuthbert’s Mathematics department to deliver a curriculum that will develop the skills set out in the National curriculum and promote an appreciation of Mathematics as a creative and highly interconnected discipline. Aiming to provide students with a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject together with an appreciation of the beauty and power of Maths in different cultures. We endeavour to provide support across a range of subjects with an emphasis on problem-solving and developing Mathematical fluency through a mastery approach, making sure that all learning is embedded in long-term memory. This will enable students to recall information to use in a variety of new learning opportunities as well as real life situations. We also aim to narrow gaps that students may have with the basic numeracy skills essential within everyday life.
