|A good grasp of Mathematics is an essential skill both in everyday life and in the work place.
At The Dixie we encourage the development of our students’ numeracy and problem solving skills through varied and creative lessons taught by experienced and supportive teachers. We aim for all students to have a thorough understanding and confident ability in Mathematics, leaving them well equipped for their next step in life.
UKMT Mathematics Challenges
Through training for and entry in the UKMT Mathematics Challenges, students develop their problem solving skills, a vital skill in becoming a strong mathematician.
We subscribe to the popular MyMaths website an excellent resource containing useful revision activities and homework exercises which students can access both in and out of school.
Through the Maths Leaders Award Sixth Form mathematicians develop leadership, communication and organisational skills. To achieve the award students are required to plan and run motivational mathematical activities for our younger students and provide curriculum support in lessons. They also assist in the running of our annual Maths Activity Day and Year 5 Maths day.
The Dixie is one of the few schools in the area that has the expertise in staff to be able to offer Further Maths to AS and A2 Level.
