OVERVIEW

Mathematics is important for pupils in many other areas of study, in everyday living, in many forms of employment and in public decision making. The Mathematics Department in LJHS aims to encourage pupils to develop their mathematical skills in order to help them cope with the demands of today's society. This is particularly evident in financial capability lessons where all pupils are given the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills for the future. As part of the revised curriculum, there have been numerous brainstorming, creative, financial and team working activities introduced to the maths classroom. In the Maths Department provision is made for pupils identified with special educational needs, through withdrawal and team teaching, in which pupils are given one-to-one support.
