MATHEMATICS

OUR VISION

The Mathematics Department consists of a team of enthusiastic and committed specialists. We believe Mathematics is an exciting and challenging subject which continues to develop at a rapid rate across many research areas. Maths at Hatch End will provide your child the tools to understand science, engineering, technology, art and economics. We aim to inspire and motivate students to enjoy learning, achieve and develop as young mathematicians. Students will experience that mathematics is an international language and over time develop means of solving problems and enjoy maths for its own sake. 

As a department, we provide an environment and curriculum for your child to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, you child will develop a conceptual understanding and ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. We incorporate mathematical reasoning by encouraging your child to follow a line of enquiry, conjecture relationships, and generalisations and develop an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language. Through expert teaching and guidance, your child will be able to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
