Mathematics
Subject Overview |
Through mathematics, we learn to make sense of things around us. As technology has mathematicised the workplace and statistics are key in any debate, the mathematical sciences have moved from being a requirement not only for future scientists but an essential ingredient in the education of all. Today's students will live and work in the twenty-first century, in an era dominated by computers, by world-wide communication and by a global economy. Jobs that contribute to this economy will require workers who are prepared to absorb new ideas, to perceive patterns and to solve unconventional problems. Mathematics is a key requirement for these jobs. Throughout the GCSE Statistics program, students are encouraged to think about 'the bigger picture' of modern statistics, logically and analytically. These fundamental statistical and lateral thinking skills are useful across all kinds of disciplines and careers. They also support students with other subjects such as geography and business, where statistics are regularly used. Students have 4 lessons of Maths a week in KS3 and KS4 |
