It is vital that students view Mathematics as a relevant activity with links to the world outside school and our teaching aims to encourage this attitude. The department aims to interest and motivate students by using a wide variety of approaches. These include whole class teaching; group work; individualised work; investigative work; practical work; and the use of ICT.
