KS3 Maths

Mathematics has a significant and never ending role in all our lives. The primary goal of the department is to deliver it in the most effective and enjoyable way possible, so that students throughout the school obtain a positive experience from their maths education.

What students gain:

- Problem solving skills that are infinitely transferable in life

- The confidence that comes from overcoming difficult challenges

- The ability to deal with everyday maths problems without fear or embarrassment

- Opportunities and active encouragement to develop mathematics to the furthest of their ability

Key Stage 3 - How parents/carers can support their child

You can look at work by level, which will supplement the work being done by your son in Mathematics lessons.

Ask your son to show you the work that he is doing in lessons and consolidate this with him on mymaths at home.

Your son will have his own individual login details for this to enable the system to track his progress and performance.

Ask him to show you his homework levels.  Any homework that is set also comes with a revision lesson that your son can do at home.
