### Overview

Mathematics lessons at Applemore provide a variety of challenging activities designed to motivate and engage enquiring minds.  Our aim is to develop problem-solving skills and expand these by incorporating concepts from the Edexcel GCSE Mathematics course.

We focus on making all elements of the curriculum relevant to life beyond the classroom. For example: calculating how much it would cost to tile a wall.

At home, we would encourage parents and carers to consolidate the work completed in lessons to ensure it is fully embedded.  This will enable students to make excellent progress and feel completely confident in the new skills they have acquired.
