Maths

Welcome to Maths

Mathematics is a popular subject at Littleover with a high number of pupils choosing to continue its study into A-Level.

The Maths Faculty aims to bring Maths to life to ensure that all pupils can access and enjoy the curriculum. As teachers we strive to provide a rich and meaningful course that will allow each pupil to reach their potential.

Mathematics contributes to the school curriculum by developing students’ abilities to solve problems, to calculate, to reason logically, algebraically, and geometrically and to make sense of data. Mathematics is important for students in many other areas of study, particularly Science and Technology. It is also important in everyday life, in many forms of employment and in decision-making.

To support their studies students must have the basic maths equipment of a ruler, protractor, compass and calculator (these can all be purchased from the maths department).
