## The aim of Mr Hunte's classroom is not to simply teach Mathematics but rather, create an environment where students want to learn Mathematics.

## WHAT WE BELIEVE

## DON'T PRACTISE UNTIL YOU GET IT RIGHT, PRACTISE UNTIL YOU CAN'T GET IT WRONG.

Many years ago, when I trained in the gym, the instructor often said to us young males who wanted to get a big chest and big arms as quickly as possible, "The fastest thing you will get in the gym is HURT."

Results take time. There is no quick fix to better grades. Practice is paramount to success in Mathematics. Therefore, we do not stop practising a topic once we have gotten a few questions correct. We practise perpetually because we aim for the unattainable standard of PERFECTION.

## EVERYTHING IN MATHEMATICS MAKES SENSE.

### Get to Know Us

In 2 Peter 3:16, the apostle Peter stated that some of the things that Paul taught in his letters to the churches were hard to understand. Similarly, there are portions of Mathematics that are hard to understand. However, this does not mean impoosible to understand. With effort and diligence all concepts, easy or "difficult", can be understood and masterfully applied.

## THE MORE YOU KNOW, THE LESS YOU DON'T KNOW.

While knowledge is considered on the lower level in Mathematics, it is still indispensible to the learning process. It is imperative that students know the mathematical formulae taught. This enhances their ability to apply a formula when required.

Students are encouraged to create their own formula/reference sheet as the year progresses. This is a great revision tool.

## DON'T FOCUS ON WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW. FOCUS ON WHAT YOU DO KNOW.

Have you ever simply looked at a question and decided that you can't get it done? That's probably because you focused on what you didn't know. Your mentality needs to change. Rather, you need to focus on the part, however small it a be, that you do know. Remember that basic mathematical knowledge is always the starting point.

## USEFUL TECHNOLOGIES
