### MATHEMATICS & COMPUTING TWEETS

### We wish to promote Numeracy and a zest for Mathematics in our students. We hope that each student finds purpose in their work and is able to apply their Mathematical knowledge and skills across the curriculum and throughout their lives.

## Computing

At Wollaston school, we believe that a high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems.

The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
