Mathematics at ALDRIDGE SCHOOL - A SCIENCE COLLEGE
The course in Mathematics will develop and extend the work in Key Stage 3. There will also be opportunity to review topics covered previously. The course includes using and applying mathematics, number and algebra, shape, space and measures, and handling data. The GCSE course will enable pupils to study the most appropriate type of work. Pupils are taught in groups set by ability, and will follow a course leading to an examination at either Foundation tier (grades C-G) or Higher tier (grades A*-D). The final examination comprises 2 papers; the first is done without a calculator, the second is done with a calculator. Coursework is in two parts. A mathematical investigation is done towards the end of Year 10 and a statistical project is done in the middle of Year 11. All this takes place within the normal teaching time. All courses include work on basic numeracy and an appreciation of mathematics in its own right, as well as its application to other subject areas. More able pupils will take part in Annual Mathematical competitions.
