Our Vision for Mathematics

It is extremely important to us at Broadwood that all children develop a love of mathematics. Our learning environment enables children to flourish, develop confidence in mathematics and a ‘can do’ attitude. It is essential children understand the value of mathematics and its purpose in the real world. We therefore continuously offer children a context for learning mathematics.

It would be fantastic if all children left Broadwood as confident problem solvers, pattern sniffers and collaborators, demonstrating crucial skills such as resilience, articulation and reasoning. We will never give up on any child and believe all children have the ability to be successful mathematicians.

Our key aims

Our curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of the 2014 curriculum which aims to ensure all pupils:

- Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that they are efficient in using and selecting the appropriate written algorithms and mental methods, underpinned by mathematical concepts

 - Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including in unfamiliar contexts and to model real-life scenarios

- Can reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry and develop and present a justification, including in unfamiliar mathematical language.
