#### Our Intent:

In Mathematics at Central Lancaster High School the subject is designed with the intention that all pupils will be able to explore a variety of representations of mathematical structures through different approaches. Pupils arrive to Central Lancaster High School with different attitudes to mathematics, so the appropriate blend of co-operative and independent learning helps to build their confidence whilst also discovering mathematical formulae and deepening their understanding. Pupils develop so that they can articulate their reasoning and think mathematically, whilst also having the resilience and resource to be able to organise their own thinking and devise strategies independently. Pupils will develop their fluency across a broad range of topics including number, algebra, shape, statistics and ratio and proportion.
