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 ten members of staff. These are:
|Miss L Whitworth||Head of Department|
|Mrs A Catterall||Director of Maths South Manchester Learning Trust|
|Mr A Brennan||Deputy Headteacher|
|Mrs E Witchalls||Second in Department|
|Mr R Lemmon||Teacher of Mathematics|
|Mrs S Whitworth||Teacher of Mathematics|
|Mrs J Craig||Teacher of Mathematics|
|Mr M Lake||Teacher of Mathematics|
|Mrs E Jones||Teacher of Mathematics|
|Mr C Pitt||Teacher of Mathematics|
At Altrincham College, students will study number ratio & proportion, 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.
