Mathematics

Mathematics - Key Stage 3

Starting with the four operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division – the path toward abstract problem-solving begins here.  At the same time as students increase their fluency with the language of the subject, they gradually develop confidence in using mathematics to tackle a variety of challenges from across the discipline.

Whilst the programme varies according to the ability of the student, the syllabus below is representative of the mathematics covered in the first two years at the College.
