Mathematics

 

Aims and our philosophy

Mathematical thinking is important for all members of a modern society as a habit of mind for its use in the workplace, business and finance, and for personal decision-making. Mathematics is fundamental to national prosperity in providing tools for understanding science, engineering, technology and economics. It is essential in public decision-making and for participation in the knowledge economy. At Hendon School the Mathematics Department strives to equip pupils with uniquely powerful ways to describe, analyse and change the world.

Key Stage 3 – Years 7 – 8

In 2012-13 84% of our Year 9 students achieved a level 5+.
When students first start at Hendon they are taught in their form groups for the first half term. At the end of this half term students will be given a short test to see how well they have settled into their secondary maths education. Though students should prepare for this test it is not something that they should become unduly worried about.
We use a variety of data to place students into sets that will meet their needs in mathematics. The national curriculum is followed in each class and therefore the same topics are covered in each set. The difference is the speed at which these topics are covered and the depth they are able to reach.


Set 1 Extension
Set 2 Core
Set 3 Core
Set 4 Support

In Year 9 we are able to teach the whole group at the same time and so the setting is slightly different.

Enrichment

The enrichment element to the mathematics teaching at Hendon incorporates exploration and development of deep thinking skills for all students. Gifted and Talented groups, STEM sessions and the UK Maths Challenge form part of the ‘in-house’ training. Outside activities are also organised including lectures by expert speakers and Master Class sessions at the Royal Institution. Our philosophy is to broaden and deepen the students understanding of the scale of the subject and to nurture the joy and fulfilment of this experience.

 Summary of scheme of assessment

 

  • Examinations will be available twice a year, in June and November.

 

 

 

Key Stage 4 – Years 10-11

 

In 2012-13 85% of our Year 11 students achieved a C or above at GCSE mathematics.

In 2012-13 96% of our Year 11 students achieved a C or above at GCSE statistics.

 

During Key Stage 4 students are working towards their GCSEs. All our students study maths but some students also choose to study statistics. Our current Year 11 are working towards a linear GCSE where they will sit two exams in May and June 2013. Our Year 10 students have just started a Linear GCSE course where they will sit exams at the end of two year course. The exam board we use is Edexcel.

A LEVEL MATHEMATICS (Edexcel)

AS Unit 1: Core Maths 1
AS Unit 2: Core Maths 2
AS Unit 3: Statistics 1 or Mechanics 1

A LEVEL FURTHER MATHEMATICS (Edexcel)

AS Unit 1: Further Maths 1
AS Unit 2/3: Any two other modules not included in Maths from M1-2, S1-S2

 

 

A2 Unit 4: Core Maths 3
A2 Unit 5: Core Maths 4

A2 Unit 4: Further Maths 2
A2 Unit 5/6: Any two other modules not included in Maths from M1-M3, S1-S3, D1-2 or FP3

The Mathematics department offers Further Maths, Maths (Mechanics), Maths (Statistics) at AS and A2. Subject to sufficient demand, Decision Maths is also offered at A2. Numbers have increased hugely in recent years; with a strong further maths class in each year.

Every year students are entered for the United Kingdom Senior Maths Challenge, and those sufficiently successful in that can be entered for the British Mathematical Olympiad. Outside activities are also organised including lectures by expert speakers and Master Class sessions at the Royal Institution. Our philosophy is to broaden and deepen the students understanding of the scale of the subject and to nurture the joy and fulfilment of this experience.
