At Mayfield the Mathematics faculty aim to inspire, develop and motivate students to take an active part in their Maths lessons. Students are given time to learn key skills and develop deep conceptual understanding of Mathematics.
It is important that our students understand the ‘how’ and ‘why’ behind mathematics. Correct mathematical language is a vital part of the learning process during Maths lessons.
Problem Solving plays an important part in our teaching at Mayfield. Our students are able to apply the knowledge they have secured in the lesson and apply it to real-life situations.
Student participation has played an important role in our most recent success. Our teachers create a calm environment which allow our students to explore, question and discover.
Our Maths club on Tuesdays is always over-subscribed and full of students from all year groups.
Home learning is given to Key Stage 4 and 5 students on a weekly basis, whereas Key Stage 3 students will receive home learning fortnightly. We use a number of different formats such traditional practise questions, online activities with Mymaths and Sam Learning, and quizzes on Show my Homework.
Regular contact is made with parents and we encourage them to play an active role with the students' home learning.
Maths Club runs every Tuesday after school in room 1.15. Students of all Year Groups can get help from our maths teachers.
A Level students have the opportunity to work in room 2.16 on a Wednesday after school.
