The mathematics curriculum at King Edward VI Lordswood School for Girls is designed to ensure that students fully appreciate the interconnected nature of the subject content and are aware of the progressive nature of all the clearly defined learning outcomes.
The mathematics department at Lordswood fully embraces the aims of the national curriculum and will plan, prepare and deliver lessons to ensure that all students:
- Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics through varied and frequent practice so that students develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately;
- Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language;
- Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication.
