Subject Vision 

The language of mathematics is international. The basic skills of mathematics are a vital tool for the life opportunities of our students. To function in society, we all need to be able to communicate mathematically. Our aim is for all children to think mathematically, enabling them to reason, solve problems and assess risk in a range of contexts. At Ivanhoe, our Mathematics Mastery curriculum has been developed to ensure every child can achieve excellence in mathematics. Children can experience a sense of awe and wonder as they solve a problem for the first time, discover different solutions and make links between different areas of mathematics. 

 

Key Stage 3 Objective Statement

As a Mathematics Department we aim to help students:

  1. Analyse and communicate information and ideas about the world in which they live.
  2. Perform useful and/or interesting tasks both within the school and adult life.
  3. Understand that there are relationships between the various parts of mathematics.
  4. Find an interest and fascination for the subject itself as well as encouraging awe and wonder for the world around them, and how this can lead to personal enjoyment and fulfilment.
  5. Have a creative, flexible and inventive approach to problem solving.
  6. Approach problems in a thorough, systematic and accurate way and to realise that this approach is most likely to lead them to a satisfying and successful outcome.
  7. Show independence and self-confidence when working mathematically.
  8. Learn to co-operate with their peers and to appreciate that such an approach to problem solving can lead to greater success than that of individuals.
  9. Develop qualities of persistence and commitment so that longer and more complex tasks can be approached.
  10. Prepare themselves for the mathematical demands, which will be made of them in the work place or in further education.
