Mathematics at Rutlish is taught in a suite of 12 rooms in the Main Building. Our schemes of work are designed not only to cover the National Curriculum and the examination syllabus, but also to offer opportunities for each student to encounter group and paired activities and to take part in investigational work. We aim to show our students the beauty of mathematics and to promote it as a subject to enjoy for its own sake, developing logical thought and the skills to solve a variety of problems. Links with other areas of the curriculum are emphasised.
Year 7 classes are set as early as possible using assessment information from primary school and assessments at Rutlish. Students are taught from a scheme of work based on the Mathematics Mastery.
In year 8 students are taught in sets. They consolidate the work of year 7. The scheme of work further develops the students understanding of mathematics based on the progress they have made to date. For most students Key Stage 3 will finish at the end of year 8. More able students are given the opportunity to enter the United Kingdom Mathematical Challenge.
Students start their GCSE course in mathematics.
Year 10 & 11
Students follow the AQA linear mathematics syllabus for GCSE. Students can be entered for higher or foundation papers, allowing grades from 1 to 9. All students are entered for GCSE mathematics. Able students are also given the opportunity to study for Additional Mathematics in year 11 which is an Advanced Free Standing Mathematics Qualification (FSMQ).
Year 12 & 13
In years 12 and 13 A level Maths and Further Maths are taught. Students need to obtain at least a 7 in their GCSE Mathematics to study A level Maths and an 8 in order to study Further Maths.
