Maths is considered one of the Core skills and as such is important, not only in education, but also in work and many personal situations.
Possession of Core skills allows people to use the knowledge and understanding they have to good effect and helps them to put what they learn in one subject into action in other aspects of learning.
The Mathematics department are able to offer courses from National 3 through to Advanced Higher for those wish to progress to study a variety of subjects at College or University.
Courses in the early stages of study are designed to encourage student participation which illustrates the need for what is being learned and which sees maths as arising out of real or realistic contexts which students can appreciate.
Course Text books have been chosen for coursework at all levels and provision for overlap between levels has been built into course arrangements.
Broad General Education
In the BGE we apply a red, amber and green system together with teacher feedback to asses and report on skill development. This will be applied in all work, homework, formative and summative assessments.
Green indicates a high level of knowledge and understanding in the skill.
Amber indicates a good level of understanding in many areas of the course with areas of misconception and/or error in calculation.
Red indicates misconceptions and/or errors in calculations in many areas of the course.
Supported Study is back up and running. We will have targeted support and pupils can also come along to ask any questions they may have.
- Senior Phase: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday after school every week. Please remember to bring study materials or questions with you.
- Junior Phase: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday after school. Students should come along with questions or this can be used as a time to complete homework with a teacher on hand to support.
