McKee College House 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
KS3 mathematics at the McKee continues to build on and strengthen students’ fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. There is a wide variety of maths taught across the major areas of:
- Ratio, proportion and rates of change
- Geometry and measures
All KS4 students follow the Edexcel Mathematics GCSE course (Linear A). GCSE mathematics at the McKee provides a broad, coherent, satisfying and worthwhile course of study. Students are encouraged to develop confidence in mathematics, a positive attitude towards the subject and to recognise the importance of mathematics in their own lives and to society. The course of study also provides a strong mathematical foundation for students who go on to study mathematics at a higher level post-16.
