Maths Department

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.


Aims:

  • To set challenging targets with high expectations for all pupils.
  • To offer a variety of approaches to teaching and learning to engage and motivate pupils and demand their active participation.
  • To smooth the transition for pupils between Key Stages and ensure progression in teaching and learning throughout their time at Wood Green Academy.
  • To explore enrichment opportunities outside the curriculum to enhance pupils’ enjoyment of mathematics.
