Curriculum Leader: Mr E Dadswell
At The Eastbourne Academy we believe all pupils should achieve their individual goals and appreciate the wonder and power of Mathematics in an exciting and encouraging environment.
To enable this, we believe that we should all work together to provide high quality and wide-ranging learning experiences and to provide and use quality resources.
All pupils will develop their mathematical skills in the six key areas:
Number, Algebra, Ratio, Proportion and rates of change, Geometry and Measures, Probability and Statistics. They will also develop their reasoning and problem-solving skills.
The students follow the AQA 1-9 course in Mathematics. The examination for this course is based on three papers.
Paper 1 Non-Calculator (1 hour 30 minutes)
Paper 2 Calculator (1 hour 30 minutes)
Paper 3 Calculator (1 hour 30 minutes)
The department runs regular support sessions for Year 10/11 pupils to assist in preparation for their GCSE exams.
Pupils from other year groups can make arrangements with their teacher as to when further support can be provided if required.
