INTENT, IMPLEMENTATION AND IMPACT
- To become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, so that pupils have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately to problems
- To reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, developing an argument and providing justification or proof using mathematical language
- To solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
- To develop learning behaviours within maths to help children become more proactive, inventive, determined and reflective.
