Mathematics

Key Stage 3 Mathematics Year 7

 Subject Content Students in year 7 follow the White Rose mastery scheme of learning. The scheme follows on from the KS2 curriculum ensuring students broaden and develop upon these key skills.    Autumn term – Understanding and applying algebraic notation, equality and equivalence, place value and ordering and fractions, decimals and percentages.  Spring term – Solving problems with addition and subtraction, solving problems with multiplication and division, four operations with directed number, addition and subtraction of fractions. Summer term – construction, measuring and geometric notation, developing geometric reasoning, developing number sense, sets and probability, prime numbers and proof. KS3 Fundamental Skills The key fundamentals for mathematics are number, algebra, geometry, statistics and ratio and proportion. Students will apply these throughout the year interleaving topics within each other so that they see and develop an understanding of how each skills links with other areas of maths and other subjects within the curriculum. Background/Extended Learning Use MyMaths to further your understanding.   Discuss at home different application to maths. Each question is related to a real life situations from buying tickets to electricity bills. Reflect on your learning and keep practice the skills. Create knowledge organisers and flash cards. This will help to learn the key facts. The key to success is using the skills regularly.

Year 8

 Subject Content Students in year 8 build on their learning in year 7 ensuring students broaden and develop upon these key skills.    Autumn term – Fractions, decimals and percentages, algebra proficiency, sequences, visualising and construction, proportional reasoning.   Spring term – Calculating risk, numbers and the number systems, calculations, solving equations and inequalities, calculating space and investigating angles.   Summer term – Algebraic techniques, presenting data, calculating data, calculations KS3 Fundamental Skills The key fundamentals for mathematics are number, algebra, geometry, statistics and ratio and proportion.
