Everyone needs to use mathematics, particularly arithmetic, as a tool to help in everyday life and to understand more clearly the world in which we live. Simple calculation, the use of tables giving information, and the interpretation and understanding of figures and graphs will be needed by everyone throughout life. In addition, skills developed in mathematics lessons will help people to tackle new ideas and problems in a confident, logical and organised way.
Mathematics is a subject where new knowledge builds on what has been understood before. Hence, pupils are placed in sets along with others who are at a similar stage of development and ability. They will follow a 2 year Linear GCSE Maths course accredited by AQA (8300).
The course is divided into Using and Applying Mathematics, Number, Algebra, Ratio, Proportion and Rates of Change, Geometry and Measures and Probability and Statistics. Pupils will look at aspects of all of these throughout the course. The GCSE is assessed through two external exams at the end of the course. There is no controlled assessment for this course.
In addition to GCSE Mathematics pupils in Set 1 will be offered the opportunity to study the AQA Level 2 Further Mathematics (8360) qualification. The course consists of an introduction to AS Level topics that will help them develop skills in Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Matrices, Trigonometry, Functions and Graphs. The qualification is assessed through two external exams at the end of the course. There is no controlled assessment for this course.
