Five Acres High School

Maths

Our vision in Maths is that students will have the knowledge to make logical connections, with the confidence to approach any problem with resilience and determination in order to achieve and be successful. Students are taught how to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, developing conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. Students will be able to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language. 

Students should be able to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions. 

The vision is to develop students' character, including resilience, confidence and independence, so that students contribute positively to the life of the school, their local community and the wider environment. Through Maths, we shall build fluent learners through representation, variation and structure, which they will achieve through mathematical thinking and coherence.
