What is Mathematics about?

In the junior years the essential content for Mathematics is structured using one process strand

  • Working Mathematically

This is embedded in the outcomes, content and examples of the syllabus which is organised in:

  • Number and algebra
  • Measurement and space
  • Statistics and probability

The aim is to develop students’ mathematical thinking, understanding, competence and confidence in the application of mathematics, their creativity, enjoyment and appreciation of the subject, and their engagement in lifelong learning.

How will I be taught Mathematics?

Students learn Mathematics through a combination of discovery, practice, and use of technology.

Teachers use innovative methods to engage students, including collaborative problem solving and real-world applications. Classwork is tailored to ensuring every student is appropriately challenged, while supportive teachers inspire curiosity and resilience. This approach fosters mathematical proficiency and confidence, whilst also preparing students to excel academically and tackle real-world challenges effectively.
