“Confidence in numeracy and other mathematical skills is a precondition of success across the national curriculum.”
The National Curriculum for Maths aims to ensure all pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics and with increasingly complex problems over time. Therefore, pupils
- Develop conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
- Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry conjecturing relationships and generalisations and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to routine and non routine problems, breaking them down into a series of simpler steps and persevering.
