At Bute House we recognise the opportunity that Maths provides for developing an understanding of the world. We acknowledge that it is essential in everday life and vital in most forms of employment. It is our aim to develop a strong conceptual understanding in all our pupils so that they are able to make the rich connections between the different elements of the subject and Maths all around us. Making these connections helps the girls to reason mathematically, become fluent in their understanding, and, to become increasingly effective problem solvers. We endeavour to provoke thought, curiosity and enjoyment through the use of investigative activities using concrete materials wherever possible.
