Maths at Stockport Academy

Course Details

Mathematics is a fundamental subject that provides students with a highly effective set of resources to understand and change the world. These resources include rational thinking, problem-solving skills, and the capability to think in subjective ways. Arithmetic is essential in lifestyle, many types of career, technological innovation, medication, the economic system, the surroundings and growth, and in public decision-making.

The Mathematics department is situated on the second floor in its own suite of eight dedicated rooms, each of which is equipped with a computer, projector and interactive whiteboard. 

The Mathematics team are all specialists and we aim to create a positive and structured learning environment where all students can achieve success.

Provide them with the equipment they will need – a pencil case complete with black/blue pens, a pencil, ruler, eraser, pencil sharpener and red pen. They will also need a scientific calculator. The one we recommend is a Casio FX85GT-PLUS. Students can purchase one from Student Services for £8.

They will also need to use a computer with reliable internet access for online homework and research, or make use of the after school clubs in the LRC.

Ensure that, when homework is set, they complete it by the deadline given.
