Maths

Aims of Maths Curriculum 

 

  •  Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.

 

  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry. Justify and prove using mathematical language

 

  • Solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
