Your Mathematics journey starts here...

The following presentation is for Year 11 pupils in preparation for their Numeracy Examinations in November 2019.

Maths Numeracy 2019


In year 7 your child will be taught number, algebra, shape and space, handling data and how to apply each of these skills to solve everyday problems.

Written tests are given regularly.  A variety of tasks are set using mental /oral work, computers, individual and group work.

How you can help:-

The most important thing by far is to encourage your child to learn their times tables.  Fast accurate recall oftimes tables will enable your child to access so many areas of what we teach in maths.

In order that your child may have the best possible start at Ysgol Bro Gwaun please make sure that he / she has the following items:

  • Pens
  • Ruler
  • Protractor
  • Pencils
  • Rubber
  • Compasses
  • Scientific Calculator (on sale in school)

In order to assist your child with his / her work, it is of benefit to:

  • Encourage him /her to ask any member of the department of Mathematics for help when necessary.
  • Encourage him /her to add, subtract, multiply and divide mentally when dealing with simple whole numbers.
  • Discuss problems with him /her.
  • Discuss work involving money, temperature, percentages and measurements in everyday life.
