Mathematics


Mathematics

All our pupils follow the National Curriculum. This includes work on Number, Algebra, Proportion and Rates of Change, Geometry & Measure, and Probability & Statistics. There is an emphasis on problem solving and understanding mathematics. The pupils use a variety of resources, which are matched to their ability. ICT resources are used widely by teachers in lessons.

At GCSE pupils follow the AQA GCSE Mathematics (specification 8300) at either Foundation or Higher tier. Those pupils at Higher tier follow either the Higher strand, focussed at grades 4, 5, 6 and 7 or the Higher+ strand focussed at grades 6, 7, 8 and 9. Pupils have access to supporting material through the college’s Moodle site and the MyMaths and Kerboodle websites.

The Maths department at Brockington College is keen to support as many pupils as possible continuing to study maths after they leave us. We are providing two documents to help pupils wishing to continue on to study A-Level maths to with the transition.

The first document is a recommended revision focus list. The list is all the skills that are needed and built upon at A-Level and therefore those skills that pupils should work to make sure they are secure in. The second document comes from HegartyMaths.com, and is their suggestions for transition focus. This list includes the video numbers that accompany each topic on HegartyMaths so that pupils can revise and practice using the site. All pupils will continue to have access to Hegarty Maths over the summer and so could use this list both as a revision aid before the GCSE exams, and to revisit topics over the summer in preparation for starting A-Level.
