Beechview Academy Mathematics Curriculum Statement
The 2014 National Curriculum for Maths aims to ensure that all children:
become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and nonroutine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
At Beechview Academy, these skills are embedded within Maths lessons and developed consistently over time. We understand the importance of mathematics in everyday life; it is critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and required in most forms of employment. A high quality mathematics curriculum , therefore, provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
