Mathematics Curriculum

The mathematics curriculum has changed recently and since September 2014, Milford Junior School has been following the new curriculum that the Government has set out.

1 Purpose of study

Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education 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.

The national curriculum for mathematics to ensure that all pupils:

  • 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 general realisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.

 

  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breakdown problems into a series of simpler steps and preserving in seeking solutions.
