Mathematics is a popular subject at Parrs Wood with a high number of pupils choosing to continue its study into A-Level.
The Maths Faculty strives to provide a rich and meaningful course to ensure that all pupils can access and enjoy the curriculum and reach their full potential.
Each teaching group will receive a minimum of one home learning task per week. This will be set and collected by their class teacher. In addition to this, all students are expected to study independently to consolidate their learning and revise for topic tests and termly exams.
- Scientific calculator (we recommend the CASIO fx-83GT plus)
- Protractor (ideally 360 degrees)
- Pair of compasses
Mathematical equipment along with the rest of the simple 7 (inc. Casio fx-83GT plus) can be purchased from the stationary shop on site. Students can also spend their rewards points on equipment from the online portal with next day collection available.
