Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. It is therefore vital that all students learn exactly how Mathematics relates to and underpins other curriculum subjects and that they develop the skills that are necessary to help achieve success in further education, employment and adult life.
At Academy St. Francis of Assisi we place an early emphasis on developing strong numeracy skills which underpin the entire Mathematics curriculum and support students’ learning in other areas such as Science, Design Technology, Computing and Geography. The Mathematics curriculum also encourages students to make connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems.
Why Study Mathematics?
Our vision is to create a climate in which we support and challenge our students to be their best. We aim for our students to be fluent mathematicians that are capable of applying the skills they have learnt to a variety of problems and situations. This requires the students to have a positive mind set and to be willing to think, discuss and explain their solutions, offer alternative methods and be confident in their abilities.
