Curriculum Map

#### Curriculum Intent

We aim to make Mathematics an enjoyable, interesting and worthwhile experience for all pupils. We aim to foster pupils’ perseverance and resourcefulness in solving problems, and to develop their ability to think logically yet creatively, leading to an affinity with the subject and excellent examination results.

Short summary for the Key Stage

• Successful completion of the chosen course due to enjoyment and engagement
• To be able to transition to the next phase of either maths or non-maths education
• To be able to transition to the next non-educational phase of their lives
• Core maths should impact on a students' ability to be successful in other subjects

## Assessment

In all sixth form courses, there will be a mixture of unit assessments and larger summary assessments at the end of each term.

#### Resources

• Corbett Maths: an excellent source of questions, answers, practise papers and more importantly explanatory videos. There is an extensive library of videos that allow students to work independently to prepare for learning as well as assessments.

Being a student in the Maths department can be hard but also fun. When we are stuck, we get support from our teacher and classmates. The teachers are always setting challenging work to push us but they explain it well so we understand and work to the best of our ability.
