Mathematics Overview

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.
