Mathematics contributes to the Eden curriculum by enabling learners to develop fluent mathematical methods and concepts, solve problems, reason mathematically and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms.

Here at Eden Girls’ School the Mathematics Department aims to ensure that student enjoyment and progress is at the core of all teaching, learning and activity.

**The Curriculum:
**During the course of the year, learners at Eden Girls’, will follow either the Key Stage 3 National Curriculum for Mathematics or the Edexcel GCSE (9-1) scheme of work, which is assessed at the end of Year 11. The needs of all learners are catered for throughout their studies in order to prepare them well for their GCSE exams.

The Scheme of Work in place is fully differentiated and covers all the key areas of Mathematics which include:

**What will learners be required to do in class and at home?
**A variety of teaching methods will be employed during the mathematics lessons and a range of tasks will be set that challenge, enthuse, motivate and demand the active participation of the learners.

Learners will be encouraged to progress through the tasks and hence deepen their knowledge and understanding of mathematics.

Learners will also be set a 30 minute mathematics homework task per week. The aim of this homework is to consolidate, extend or research.

**How will learners be assessed?
**Learners will continually be assessed during lessons to ensure that they understand the content and that the mathematical ideas can be applied.

They will also be sitting end of Unit Assessments, half termly progress tests and review tests to demonstrate the progress they are making. In June, they will have an End of Year exam, assessing them on all the topics studied during the course of the year.
