## Mathematics Course Outline

Across our school, we have a culture of ‘everyone can do maths’ for both adults and children. We want all pupils to experience success no matter what their starting point and our curriculum means that every student will leave the secondary phase with a formal qualification in Mathematics.

We encourage all our pupils to progress further in their education and recognise the importance of maths in functioning as citizens in an ever-changing world, securing education, training and employment including joining local industry.

At The Bemrose School every pupil will learn to reason mathematically and will become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics. Every pupil will be able to enquire and rationalise. Every pupil will feel safe in their maths environment and confident in the mathematical knowledge they have gained.

Homework is set each week via the Sparx learning platform. To logon to the platform, students need to use their school Microsoft account details. Students can also use Sparx to undertake independent study.

At The Bemrose School we aim to give a foundation for the students to achieve the best result they can at GCSE. Students will follow the White Rose schemes of work and sit the AQA GCSE maths papers at the end of Year 11.

The final GCSE entails 3 papers each lasting 90 minutes:

Paper 1 – Non Calculator

Paper 2 – Calculator

Paper 3 – Calculator

Any topic could be examined in any paper and therefore retention of knowledge is extremely important.

During this time students will cover the following:
