Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School

Dear Parents and Students

Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School

In our school we encourage everyone to have the highest expectations of themselves and each other as together we Learn to Lead our Lives.

We are proud of our students’ academic achievements.  Just as importantly, we are a school that cares.  We believe that students need to feel comfortable and secure in order to learn and, as a school, we put as much emphasis on creating a supportive and happy environment as we do on academic success.  We achieve both.

I look forward to working with you to ensure the very best learning and life for the young people in our care.

MATHEMATICS

MATHEMATICS FACULTY

Faculty Leader: Miss R Osman

Mathematics enables all students to be numerate in their world and to think in a way that encourages critical awareness through problem solving, reasoning and communicating understanding.  Students need to be able to apply, combine and adapt skills to be able to use Mathematics independently throughout their lives.


KEY STAGE 3

Students follow programmes of study that are designed by the Mathematics Faculty to support the Numeracy Framework and are encouraged to use real life Mathematics and approaches used including problem solving, investigations and group work

At the end of this Key Stage, students should be able to perform mental calculations, discuss and use problem-solving strategies and appreciate the breadth of applications of Mathematics, as a source of enjoyment, as well as a vital set of skills.

KEY STAGE 4

In Key Stage 4, students prepare for two GCSEs: GCSE Mathematics - Numeracy and GCSE Mathematics.  Both qualifications are with WJEC.

For GCSE Mathematics/Numeracy, students can be entered at three levels:

Foundation Tier involves basic mathematical content and avoids abstract algebraic work. The examination grades availablefor both GCSEs are D - G.

Intermediate Tier develops mathematical understanding and students will be introduced to the concepts of Trigonometry and Algebra.  Grades available are E-B.

Higher Tier is considerably more demanding, covering concepts and skills needed for Advanced Level work. Grades available are A* - C.

IN THE SIXTH FORM

At Monmouth we offer A/AS Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics using the WJEC course.

The course covers both Pure and Applied Mathematics. Both A Levels are assessed through external examinations. We also give some students the opportunity to improve on their previous GCSE grade by attending a ‘one-year’ GCSE class.  This is useful to students studying AS levels in other subjects where there is a university entrance requirement to have a grade C or B in Mathematics.
