‘Mathematics is a creative and highly interconnected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.’

### INTENT

The Maths curriculum at Atlantic Academy Portland is designed to ensure students become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics which will provide students with the conceptual understanding of the subject.

Students will embed reasoning skills which will allow them to develop arguments, justification or proofs using mathematical language. Students will develop their problem solving skills by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems.
