The mathematics department at St Olave’s seeks to:
 Develop confidence, understanding and enthusiasm for mathematics.
 Develop a wide range of mathematical skills and to use them to solve a wide range of problems in a wide range of situations.
 Think and communicate mathematically in written, spoken and graphical form.
 To attain a high standard of numeracy.
 Work both independently and cooperatively.
 Investigate mathematical ideas to think creatively.
 Work to the limits of their abilities and beyond.
 Acquire the foundation necessary for the further study of mathematics and other curriculum areas.
 Recognise situations where the use of IT is appropriate i.e. calculators and computers.
Pupils are encouraged to think creatively and to develop independent learning skills. They are also encouraged to use critical thinking and to produce independent work such as posters and investigations.
Pupils enjoy the vigour of maths competition: in school, regionally and nationally. Pupils can work individually, in pairs and in group situations.
