"Without mathematics, there's nothing you can do. Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers." - Shakuntala Devi
The Mathematics department at Chiswick School prides itself on its dedication in cultivating an appreciation for and love of Mathematics in each and every student. Our curriculum is implemented by a passionate team of highly qualified teachers who focus on developing the student's logical reasoning and problem-solving skills (conceptual knowledge) to help them gain the highest level of fluency (operational knowledge) in Mathematics. Given the importance of Mathematics in everyday life, this will enforce the key skills and required methods they need to apply the theory in practice, beyond A-Levels and further education.
At Chiswick School, we constantly adapt our curriculum to meet the demands of changes in the curriculum and through our exceptional subject knowledge we have created a purposeful and rigorous plan to assist students in reaching their full potential. For us, it is important that our students leaving the school equipped with the universal knowledge, skills and understanding that will enable them to successfully pursue whatever path they choose.
Key Stage 3
The curriculum for year 7 and 8 aims to lay a strong foundation and introduction for the core concepts in Mathematics in preparation for their GCSEs and future education. Through understanding and accommodating each student's needs to learn, we deepen our students' knowledge and understanding of algebra, shape geometry, ratio and rates of change.
Key Stage 4
We start implementing the GCSE Mathematics curriculum from Year 9. We do this to expose the students early on to the core topics: number, algebra, probability, statistics, ratio and rates of change to ensure they develop a fluency and confidence in the mathematical techniques required to solve any problems in those areas.
"The only way to learn Mathematics is to do Mathematics". Paul Halmos.
Through understanding the history of certain topics, techniques, relating them to real-world scenarios and frequent exam practice, we aim to strengthen the students' love and understanding of Mathematics.
Key Stage 5
A-Level Mathematics at Chiswick School is a rigorous and intellectually rewarding course. Mathematics is a prerequisite for a vast range of University degrees like Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, Computer Science and Economics courses. We therefore place a huge amount of emphasis in strengthening our student's problem solving and deductive reasoning skills to allow them a successful academic life and career progression.
