What does the Maths Curriculum at Aureus strive to achieve?
Our Maths Curriculum strives to provide a foundation and grounding for understanding the world we all live in, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
How do students study Maths at Aureus?
Students are taught maths at Key Stage 3 following a mastery approach, research shows that this approach is key for students to be successful. Mastery supports pupils from all starting points to develop a depth of understanding and knowledge. Time is given to topic areas to unpick the intricacies of mathematical methodology. We interleave learning to maximise retention.
As students enter Year 10 they start their journey into GCSE Maths, following either Foundation or Higher tier.
Why is studying Maths important?
Other than having to sit exams at the end of year 11, Mathematics is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology, and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. The Maths curriculum supports and interlinks with other subjects studied, a good foundation in maths can remove the barriers to other subject areas.
