"Pure Mathematics is, in its own way, the poetry of logical ideas." Albert Einstein. 

"Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations or algorithms: it is about UNDERSTANDING." William Paul Thurston

Mathematics is a universal language that helps us to understand the world, and it is a core part of the curriculum. As well as teaching about numbers, shapes, statistics and patterns, it provides important tools for work in areas such as physics, architecture, medicine and business. It helps learners to develop logical and methodical thinking, to focus and to solve a wide range of mathematical problems. Success can be ‘coordinated’ when leaders ensure all the elements of pupils’ mathematics education are supporting each pupil’s progress in the subject. Success in mathematics leads to many opportunities for further study and employment.

Our Oakfield Mathematics Curriculum aims 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 generalisations, 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 breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
