I believe it is vital to show pupils that mathematics is not confined to the classroom. On Friday afternoons during my first term, I would take a group of year 9 intervention pupils to a training facility in Leigh to explore the practical applications of mathematics in areas such as joinery, plastering and construction. By creating links to the real world, these pupils were able to gain a greater appreciation for the relevance of mathematics. It was wonderful to watch many of them discover new talents and vocations they would like to pursue in the future!
