Key Stage 3
In KS3, each year is split into discrete topic areas:
|Unit 1: Area and Perimeter (with Place Value & Four Operations)|
|Unit 2: Probability (with Fractions & Percentages)|
|Unit 3: Sequences, Graphs & Transformations|
|Unit 4: Angles and Lines|
|Unit 5: Money Matters (Decimals, Finance & Negatives)|
|Unit 6: Properties of Shape|
|Unit 7: Factors, Multiples, Primes and Indices|
|Unit 8: Statistics & Data Handling|
|Unit 9: Fractions and Percentages|
|Unit 10: Ratio, Proportion and Measures|
|Unit 11: Basic Algebra|
Pupils cycle through each topic area, gaining in-depth knowledge and understanding with a mastery focus on gaining confidence in each aspect’s basic skills before moving-on to more challenging areas.
Key Stage 4
In KS4, while the same topic areas are covered as in KS3, there is a greater appreciation of how the topics relate to one another.
Pupils study topics discretely and then in conjunction in order to secure a strong understanding and enable them to apply their knowledge to problem solving involving multiple topic areas in preparation for GCSE exams.
The aims of the GCSE Maths course are to:
> Develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
> Acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
> Reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences, and draw conclusions
> Comprehend, interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context
