Mathematics

Welcome to

The Mathematics Department

 

Our Vision

The Mathematics Department aims to equip our students with the independence, problem solving skills and knowledge they need to be creative and adaptive in their future world.

Aims

At Astor College, our aim is for our students to become numerate, independent and curious learners with skills that are transferrable to other areas of the school's curriculum and to life in the community.

We do this by:

  • Implementing the school vision of being adaptable, creative and proud.
  • Setting challenging and high expectations for all pupils.
  • Offering a variety of approaches to teaching and learning to engage and motivate pupils and demand their active participation.
  • Smoothing the transition for pupils between Key Stages and ensure progression in teaching and learning throughout their time at Astor College.
  • Ensuring all pupils, regardless of ability, make expected progress between key stages.
  • Exploring enrichment opportunities outside the curriculum to enhance pupils’ enjoyment of mathematics.

Curriculum

Students receive a varied curriculum which contains the core skills needed for success in this and other subjects.

Throughout their 5 years, students study areas of Mathematics within Number, Ratio and Proportion, Algebra, Geometry, Statistics and Probability.

Students will be signposted to Real life application whenever possible. This will include showing links between percentages and financial products such as bank accounts, loans, credit cards etc. A real life finance module will be available to all students from Year 7 to Year 11 which will set them up to achieve in living an adult life. 

The Mathematics department are always looking for ways that we can use student skills across the college curriculum so wherever possible cross-curricular links will also be made especially with Science, DT, Geography. 

Some students will have the opportunity to work with the University of Kent to enrich their understanding of Mathematics in the every day life as well as broadening their Mathematics to the level of understanding they will need if they decide to study Mathematics at university. 

Students may also participate in UKMT Individual and Team Challenges to develop their understanding, problem solving and team building skills. 

Our students will be made aware of different careers that use Mathematics across Years 7 - 13. Students will then have the opportunity to discuss these occupations as career options for them. 

For any enquiries, please contact Mrs Melanie Williams, Director of Mathematics
