“IF YOU WANT TO TAKE PART IN TOMORROW’S WORLD, YOU’LL NEED MATHEMATICS JUST AS MUCH AS GRAMMAR AND SYNTAX” – Prof. Robert Winston
Our aim in the Mathematic Department is to give every pupil the opportunity to experience success in learning and to achieve as high a standard as possible.
We set mathematic throughout the school according to ability, so that each child can work at an appropriate level. Staff try to make the teaching and learning of mathematics as enjoyable and purposeful by linking to the outside world, as much as possible, in order to make it relevant.
Mental strategies play an important part in mathematics and most children will have mental maths prep each week. This will give them confidence when it comes to answering questions in the classroom.
At Moor Park we believe every child should be given the chance to succeed, whatever their individual ability, and we feel the curriculum that we have in place gives them this opportunity.
