Ethos & Aims
The mathematics team is passionate about inspiring and challenging pupils in lessons and committed to all pupils achieving their absolute potential.
We aim to:
- Set challenging targets with high expectations for all pupils.
- Offer a variety of approaches to teaching and learning to engage and motivate pupils and demand their active participation.
- Smooth the transition for pupils between Key Stages and ensure progression in teaching and learning throughout their time at School.
- Explore enrichment opportunities outside the curriculum to enhance pupils’ enjoyment of mathematics
Mathematics is the means of looking at the patterns that make up our world and the intricate and beautiful ways in which they are constructed and realised. Numeracy is the means of making that knowledge useful.
Mathematics contributes to the school curriculum by developing pupils’ abilities to calculate; to reason logically, algebraically, and geometrically; to solve problems and to handle data. Mathematics is important for pupils in many other areas of study, particularly Science and Technology. It is also important in everyday living, in many forms of employment, and in public decision-making. As a subject in its own right, mathematics presents frequent opportunities for creativity, and can stimulate moments of pleasure and wonder when a problem is solved for the first time, or a more elegant solution to a problem is discovered, or when hidden connections suddenly manifest.
It enables pupils to build a secure framework of mathematical reasoning, which they can use and apply with confidence. The power of mathematical reasoning lies in its use of precise and concise forms of language, symbolism and representation to reveal and explore general relationships. These mathematical forms are widely used for modelling situations; a trend accelerated by computational technologies.
The subject transcends cultural boundaries and its importance is universally recognised. Mathematics helps us to understand and change the World.
At The Coseley School every maths teacher has a class set of calculators for use in lessons.
If you choose to buy your child their own calculator it would benefit them if you purchased the same model, it usually cost’s around £5.50 - buy them from here.
