The Math Department Mission Statement

The Mathematics Department aims to provide all students with a rewarding and enjoyable experience of mathematics. We will prepare students to become confident, numerate problem-solving individuals who are able to deal with all aspects of mathematics in their chosen career and in all aspects of their adult life.

This will be accomplished through our commitment to excellent teaching, a well-designed scheme of learning with an interesting variety of lessons to motivate and engage all students. We have high expectations of all students so that they will recognise and achieve their full potential. We hope that students will develop their own skills in analysis, reasoning, creativity, collaboration and self-evaluation so that they can meet the mathematical problems they face with thoughtfulness and enthusiasm.

Mathematics is essential for everyday life and understanding our world. It is also essential to science, technology and engineering, and the advances in these fields on which our economic future depends. It is therefore fundamentally important to ensure that all pupils have the best possible mathematics education. They need to understand the mathematics they learn so they can be creative in solving problems, as well as being confident and fluent in developing and using the mathematical skills so valued in the world of industry and higher education.

Drivers (Intent)

Implement

Impact

  • High Challenge for All
  • Pitching to the top of the class
  • Scaffolding support for less able
  • Same question with different starting point
  • Concrete-pictorial-Abstract
  • Hard copies of questions in books
  • Setting Memri quizzes on HegartyMaths

 

  • All students will be able to access the learning
  • Reducing anomalies
  • Encouraging progress for all
  • Increasing the less able confidence in their maths ability.
  • Improving stickability of maths skills.
  • Subject scholars
  • Encouraging academic reading/liaise with the library
  • Questioning techniques
  • Sentence starters
  • Student teachers – having students deliver Do Now or entire lesson.
  • Confident independent learners
  • Better problem solvers of questions that are in or out of context.
  • Stickability / learning pit-stops
  • Diagnostic questions
  • Structured group work
  • Exit tickets
  • Low stakes quizzes
  • Mastery (cross-curriculum)
  • Confident Independent Learners.
  • Better problem solvers of questions that are in or out of context.
  • High Expectations
  • Meet and greet
  • Do now
  • Least invasive strategies
  • Disciplined dismissals
  • 6 a day
  • Improved behaviour in department
  • Improved culture for learning
  • Reduction of sanctions
  • Creates diverse and engaging learning opportunities
  • Bridging the word gap
  • Insisting on mathematical talk
  • Frayer models
  • Keywords
  • Analysing worded questions
  • Better problem solvers
  • Access to higher level questions
  • Improve student’s reasoning ability.

 

These Intent will be achieved through a distinctive departmental ethos which may be summarised as “We Know, We Can, We Will” succeed.

This ethos entails treating all pupils as partners in learning and faculty teachers working together as a team to develop support each other to give all pupils the best possible experience. The leadership role of pupils will be developed, and peer teaching and learning will be encouraged. Pupils will become better independent learners and will become reflective of their own needs by our development of a culture of self- assessment. The quality of learning and teaching will continue to be improved by further developing individuals and remembering that we are all learners and that we should strive to continuously improve our own mathematical as well as learning and teaching knowledge.
