𝐌𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐬: 𝐈𝐬 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐝 𝐔.𝐊. 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐲? In recent years, U.K. schools have responded to the demand from higher education institutions and employers for pupils to develop a range of transferable skills. If you feel that your child will require assistance in adapting to the specific needs of maths in the U.K., Minerva Tuition is able to provide a tutor to assist with the transition.
𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐛𝐥𝐞𝐦-𝐬𝐨𝐥𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 Pupils are encouraged to take their mathematical skills and translate them into processes - both in mathematical and non-mathematical contexts - to develop ways to solve problems.
𝐈𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 Maths teaching in the U.K. encourages pupils, without guided learning, to independently use their mathematical skills. Pupils should use their own initiative to develop their mathematical understanding.
𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 Classroom scenarios are created which encourage pupils to communicate a mathematical process or technique, either verbally or through writing, to peers and teachers and answer questions from others.
𝐄𝐧𝐣𝐨𝐲𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐬 Maths education in the UK aims, from the early years onwards, to enable students to develop their knowledge and understanding of mathematical concepts and techniques, to acquire a foundation of mathematical skills for further study in the subject or related areas, to enjoy using and applying mathematical techniques and concepts and to become confident in using mathematics to solve problems.
𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐨𝐱 The most successful students will be those who can ‘think outside the box’. The best preparation for your child who plans to transfer to school in the UK will involve not merely filling in gaps in syllabus coverage such as the use of standard form, Pythagoras’ Theorem, trigonometry, calculator use and statistics, but encouraging him or her to ‘take some risks’ and try applying their mathematical knowledge in a variety of contexts.
