Skills Taught:

There is a renewed emphasis on students acquiring skills   in ; Problem solving , Functionality and Mathematical Thinking.
There will be a much greater focus in teaching skills on applying and using mathematics to solve questions set in the real world. Students might be asked to answer questions on , for instance, decorating a room or designing a garden or perhaps paying bills or sorting out rotas for shop staff.

Students will also develop their ability to communicate the mathematics they have applied in order to solve a question- a requirement called the Quality of Written Communication.

The skills taught, throughout KS3 and KS4, will enable students to:

  • develop fluent knowledge and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
  • acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
  • reason mathematically ,make deductions and inferences and draw conclusions
  • comprehend ,interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context
