While learners are at Matthew Moss they will continue to study the number, algebra, shape, measure and data topics with which you are already familiar. Our aim is to extend your knowledge and encourage them to believe in their ability to do well. Not everyone finds Mathematics easy but we listen to the views our learners put across and change things if necessary in order to help them (and us) be the best that they can be.
Our new scheme of work, has been drawn up in consultation with our learners who have suggested topics such as Food, Animals and Space. These topics give you the chance to see where Mathematics fits into the real world. Within these topics learners have asked that we keep 'Design a Board Game' and 'Plan a Bedroom' as they have particularly enjoyed the more practical elements of these areas of Mathematics.
During every Mathematics lesson we will help learners to develop their thinking, problem solving, communication and independent learning skills. We encourage learners to discuss, explore and practise their Mathematics skills enabling them to gain a greater understanding of the Mathematics all around them. In order to facilitate this, we expect all learners to have a full set of equipment, including a scientific calculator, for every lesson and submit homework regularly. Above all we want every learner at Mathew Moss to enjoy Mathematics and not see it as something confined to a classroom. Mathematics is all around and can sometimes be found in the most unexpected places!
Matthew Moss strives to provide high quality CEIAG to all students to prepare them for their future.
