THE MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT
Broad General Education
In the BGE maths courses pupils will be looking to develop and progress their skills in Numeracy, Algebra, Geometry and Data Handling. Pupils will also spend time dealing with higher order challenging questions to promote and develop higher order thinking skills.
Pupils have access to an online learning programme called Maths and Numeracy Workouts. There are extensive practice resources and teaching aids to help improve pupil’s skills in particular areas.
It is important that pupils do well in the BGE as it builds a solid foundation to go on and succeed at National 4, National 5 and Higher Mathematics.
