@HA_Maths

Maths can be applied to all other subjects, there are so many applications. It is also one of the most applicable subjects to real life, you can’t really do anything without maths. Maths is the reason all our amazing technological advancements are possible. And maths can be fun! It provides infinite challenging problems that are incredibly satisfying to solve. It is a joy watching our students overcome their own barriers. It’s a great subject!

Recent successes by the Maths Department

During the last academic year, the mathematics department have run a series of trips, pupils have visited Bletchley park to learn about Alan Turing and the code breakers during WW2. We recently took a group of girls to a stemettes convention to learn about pathways for girls with a mathematical background.

Alongside the trips, we have had success in the UKMT challenges. We consistently have students achieving gold certificates and have recently has a student finish in the Top 1000 students for the competition.

Maths

 The broad areas of study are:

  • Number: Including the ability to use a range of methods of computation and to use a calculator
  • Algebra: The expression of relationships, their algebraic manipulation and the use of algebra to solve problems
  • Shape, Space and Measures: Exploration of shape and space through drawing, theoretical and practical work, e.g. area, volume, angles etc.
  • Handling Data: Use of statistical methods, the representation of data and problems involving probability
  • Using and Applying Maths (Functional Skills)
  • Through practical problem solving and mathematical investigations
  • Ratio and Proportion
  • Using relationships between length, area, volume and other quantities such as currency to solve problems in a real life context
