# Mathematics

# What is our curriculum intent?

Our intent is to enable all students to become subject experts by developing across our ‘Big Ideas’:

Number | Algebra | Ratio & Proportion | Geometry & Measure | Statistics | Probability |

# How do we implement our curriculum?

## 1. Through what we teach, when, as laid out below:

Our curriculum is designed so that each year we build on student’s previous learning, continually extending

knowledge and deepening understanding of each topic, and developing reasoning and analytical skills.

Many of these topics require students to be familiar using mathematical equipment. We therefore expect

students to bring to every lesson a pen, pencil, ruler, rubber, protractor, compass and a scientific calculator

(we strongly recommend the Casio FX83GT or FX85GT).

## 2. Through how we group students

In Mathematics we teach our students in three types of group (Extension, Core and Support) to allow our

teachers to plan and deliver lessons that stretch and challenge all students appropriately. We assess

student’s progress regularly to ensure that they are in the most suitable group for their learning.

## 3. Through the homework we set

In Mathematics homework is a vital opportunity for students to permanently learn their mathematical

knowledge. We have therefore created homework for each topic to allow students to:

- practise mathematical skills learned in the lesson
- apply knowledge and understanding to different problems independently
- develop reasoning and analytical skills in increasingly complex contexts
