SUBJECT OVERVIEW

Mathematics is needed for Business and Finance, Engineering, Science and Technology. Mathematics is also a fascinating subject in its own right.  The ability to solve mathematical problems will have a significant effect on the life chances of your child.  A good qualification in mathematics allows one to follow a wide range of professions and careers and increases opportunities and life chances.
The curriculum is designed to be accessible and meet the needs of all students.  Students will develop problem solving techniques and use practical activities to develop understanding.

In year 7 sets 2, 3 and the SLC follow a catch up scheme of work addressing the gaps identified following their key stage 2 assessments.

Assessment

  • Internal examinations are taken each term throughout the course and regular testing of specific topic areas is also carried out.
  • Homework tasks are set weekly and will include activities which revisit topics studied earlier in the course. This ensures revision is taking place throughout each school year.

KEY STAGE 5

Mathematics is a very popular and successful subject at Enterprise South Liverpool Academy, and we offer A Level Mathematics and A Level Further Mathematics.  We have a dedicated team of specialist A level teachers, all on hand to support students throughout the course.
  • There are 3 main areas in mathematics at A Level:
  • Pure Mathematics: Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Calculus (Differentiation and Integration and their applications.)
  • Mechanics: Application of Newtonian ideas to describe and predict real world situations; the main topics being Kinematics, Statics and Dynamics.
  • Statistics: Representation and analysis of data, including Probability, Probability Distributions, Linear Correlation and Linear Regression.

SCHEMES OF WORK

Students follow a differentiated scheme of work designed to build and develop their mathematical ability. The key principles of the scheme are:
  • Fluency
  • Problem Solving
  • Mathematics Reasoning
  • Multiplicative Reasoning
  • Reflection
