Welcome to the Mathematics Department
Students are encouraged to reach their full potential and to develop their skills in numeracy, reasoning, investigation and communication at each key stage (see links for further details).
Meet the Mathematics Department
The department team consists of seven members of staff. These are:
|Mrs S Whitworth||Head of Department|
|Mr A Brennan||Deputy Headteacher|
|Miss S Smith||KS5 tracking and Intervention Co-ordinator|
|Mr R Lemmon||Teacher of Mathematics|
|Miss E O'Connell||Assistant Head of Learning (Year 11)|
|Miss L Whitworth||Second in Department / KS3 Progress|
|Mrs E Witchalls||Teacher of Mathematics|
|Mrs J Craig||Teacher of Mathematics|
|Mr M Lake||Teacher of Mathematics|
At Altrincham College, students will study number, algebra, geometry and handling data, and we endeavour to foster interest and success in Mathematics for all.
The aim of the Mathematics Department is to extend our pupils knowledge, allowing them to apply problem solving skills to real life problems.
During every maths lesson, thinking skills, problem solving, communication and independent learning skills will be developed.
In order to facilitate this, we expect students to have a full set of equipment (pen, pencil, ruler, eraser) and a scientific calculator for every lesson.
