At BSM we follow the English National Curriculum for maths. Maths is a core subject and we aim to equip students with the tools of logical reasoning, problem solving, abstract thought and number computation skills which are important in our daily lives. The strands of study are - using and applying mathematics, counting and understanding numbers, knowing and using number facts, calculating, understanding shape, measuring and data handling. Learning Power skills are embedded within lessons which complement our investigative approach to learning. This develops the student’s self-confidence and ability to creatively problem solve, both independently and collaboratively, and both inside and outside the classroom and also to apply their skills to real life situations.
