Mathematics is a popular subject at Parrs Wood with a high number of pupils choosing to continue its study into A-Level.

The Maths Faculty strives to provide a rich and meaningful course to ensure that all pupils can access and enjoy the curriculum and reach their full potential. 

Each student is expected to work independently on DrFrostMaths.com every week. This will be monitored by their class teacher. In addition to this, students are expected to study independently to consolidate their learning and revise for topic tests and termly exams.

Equipment required:

  • Pen
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Rubber
  • Sharpener
  • Scientific calculator (we recommend the CASIO fx-83GT plus)
  • Protractor (ideally 360 degrees)
  • Pair of compasses

Mathematical equipment along with the rest of the simple 7 (inc. Casio fx-83GT plus) can be purchased from the stationary shop on site. Students can also spend their rewards points on equipment from the online portal with next-day collection available.
