Our Goal

At Aberdare Community School we believe that Mathematics is a subject that all pupils can thrive in. It is one of the Departments main aims to ensure that Mathematics is accessible to all. We endeavor to do this by passing on the love of the subject through engaging lesson, by ensuring pupil progress is monitored and by providing opportunities for extra-curricular activities throughout the subject that pupils will enjoy.

Mathematics is the key to understanding and exploring the world. It is a subject that was taught in schools 500 years ago, and will still most-probably be taught in another 500 years time. Everything from iPods and iPhones to space rockets, from Satnavs to computers, depends on mathematics to make it work.

Mathematics is regularly used in our everyday life:- 

• Working out our daily bills

• Budgeting our annual holidays

• Working out the cooking time for our Sunday Roast

• Ensuring one has the correct change when out shopping

• Deciding which is the best mobile phone tariff to choose.

 At Aberdare Community School it is our endeavor to create confidence in all pupils to use mathematics in everyday life, to communicate mathematically, and to face mathematical problems with confidence and without fear. There are six fundamental aims in the department.
