MATHEMATICS Eclassopedia IGCSE Grade 7 Mathematics
supports learners in building competency, confidence, and fluency in their use of techniques and mathematical understanding. This course helps learners to develop a feel for quantity, patterns, and relationships. Learners will develop their reasoning, problem-solving and analytical skills in a variety of abstract and real-life contexts.
Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics provides a strong foundation of mathematical knowledge for candidates studying mathematics at a higher level and those requiring mathematics to support skills in other subjects.
The course is tiered to allow all candidates to achieve and progress in their mathematical studies. Our programs balance a thorough knowledge and understanding of a subject and help to develop the skills learners need for their next steps in education or employment.
From Cambridge IGCSE Grade 7 Mathematics
learners can progress to Cambridge IGCSE Additional Mathematics or straight to Cambridge International AS & A Level Mathematics, or other qualifications at that level.
The aims describe the purposes of a course based on this syllabus.
The aims are to enable students to:
• develop an understanding of mathematical principles, concepts, and methods in a way that encourages confidence provides satisfaction and enjoyment, and develops a positive attitude towards mathematics
• develop a feel for number and understand the significance of the results obtained
• apply mathematics in everyday situations and develop an understanding of the part that mathematics plays in learners’ own lives and the world around them
• analyze and solve problems, present the solutions clearly, and check and interpret the results
• recognize when and how a situation may be represented mathematically, identify and interpret relevant factors, select an appropriate mathematical method to solve the problem, and evaluate the method used
• use mathematics as a means of communication with an emphasis on the use of clear expression and structured argument
• develop an ability to apply mathematics in other subjects, particularly science and technology
• develop the ability to reason logically, make deductions and inferences, and draw conclusions
• appreciate patterns and relationships in mathematics and make generalizations
• appreciate the interdependence of different areas of mathematics
• acquire a foundation for further study of mathematics or for other disciplines.
