MATHEMATICS

At Olive High we value and recognise the importance of mathematics as a creative and highly inter connected discipline that has solved many complex and intriguing problems throughout history.

Pupils will be expected to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in problem solving. Pupils will take increasing responsibility for the progress of their work. Through the mathematical content pupils should be taught to develop fluency and build on previous knowledge from key stage 2 and extend this to encapsulate the following topics. Pupils will also develop their use of formal mathematical knowledge to interpret and solve problems.

Pupils will be entitled to 3 lessons of Mathematics per week, this accounts for a total of 3 hours per week
