Mathematics has always been at the forefront of human culture and development. By building on pupils’ own experiences mathematics encourages growth of thinking, reasoning and communication skills. It provides a structure for the development of knowledge, skills and understanding required for life. Mathematics is essential to fill intellectual development and should be fun.
As a department we set high expectations for all of our students. At St. John Bosco’s we offer a variety of teaching and learning techniques to cater for the needs of every student and help to motivate them to learn, understand and enjoy maths.
From key stage 3 we build students interests and confidence in mathematics which prepares them for key stage 4 and 5 learning, and more importantly for a life time love of learning and use of maths in every day life. Fluency in mathematical key skills is fundamental and we strive to ensure that every student leaves school fullyequipped to enter the world of adult life.
