Mathematics is a universal part of human culture. It is a vital tool and language of commerce, engineering and other sciences – physics, computing, biology etc. It helps us recognise patterns and to understand the world around us. Mathematics plays a vital, often unseen, role in many aspects of modern life. As society becomes technologically dependent, there will be an increasing requirement for people with a high level of mathematical training. Analytical and quantitative skills are sought by a wide range of employers. A qualification in Mathematics provides you with a broad range of skills in problem solving, logical reasoning and flexible thinking. Mathematics is an exciting and challenging subject which continues to develop at a rapid rate across many research areas. It has a natural elegance and beauty. Taking a real world problem and creating and applying mathematical models to aid understanding is often hugely satisfying and rewarding.
The primary aim of the Mathematics Department at the Priory Academy LSST is to encourage our students to strive for excellence and value their achievements. We look to:
- Develop our students’ ability and give them the tools to communicate mathematically – precisely, logically and creatively.
- Develop their self-motivation and willingness to work both independently and co-operatively.
- Develop a positive attitude to mathematics including confidence, enjoyment and perseverance.
