Maths is a key subject for employers. The skills you will develop throughout your study include problem solving, resilience, critical thinking, creativity, logical thinking and much, much more.
What does my child need?
All pupils will be required to have a calculator for all lessons. For KS4 all pupils must have a scientific calculator, and this is preferred for KS3 also. The recommended and preferred calculator is the CASIO fx-83GT PLUS. (These can be purchased from Maths teachers for £8; standard maths sets are free with the purchase of a calculator.)
In addition to these items all pupils should be equipped with a pen, pencil and ruler for all lessons. All other specialist maths equipment will be provided by teachers; however, pupils can still bring their own.
We also expect all pupils to have their journal in all lessons, to record homework, to access resources at the back of the journal including the formula sheet.
All students are expected to come to lessons fully equipped and be ready to learn in order to participate fully in lessons.
Full equipment includes:
Scientific calculator: recommended model Casio fx-83GT PLUS
(available from your Maths teacher for £8)
All pupils will be given an exercise book to work on in lessons.
All pupils will be given a homework exercise of 25 questions and when in Key Stage 4, additional exam questions will also be set to be completed at home; to hand in on day specified by their maths teacher.
All pupils will be expected to take care of these items and treat them with pride and respect.
