Cooper Perry's vision
Our children become confident mathematicians whose solid skills base allows them to apply and investigate maths in: contextual situations, reasoning questions and explanations of misconceptions.
How we teach mathematicians:
With high expectations for all; our children are taught mathematical fluency and skills through practical and contextual application. Children are encouraged to show off their understanding and develop security in:
- fluency (rapid and accurate recall and application of facts and concepts)
- a growing confidence to reason mathematically
- the ability to apply maths to solve problems, to conjecture and to test hypotheses.
Maths is fun and we learn to develop mathematical resilience - we don't give up but keep going until we find a way in which we understand what we are learning about. The basis of our teaching allows maths to be applied in reasoning and problem solving allowing our children to have a long term, deep and adaptable understanding.
