Mathematics at KS3 builds upon work from previous years to develop a greater mathematical understanding. Pupils will be expected to use specific mathematical language, use diagrams to help solve problems and decide upon the most efficient method of solving a problem.
The following are the schemes of work. Pupils are encouraged to identify their strengths and weaknesses from each assessment and state how they are going to improve on these areas.
Delta 2 – High ability Year 8
Theta 2 – Middle ability Year 8
Pi 2 – Low ability Year 8
Pupils will be following the EDEXCEL Pearson ActiveLearn Scheme of Work. In Years 7 and 8 will be taught in line with GCSE grading from 1 to 9. The level of work that they receive will depend upon their ability. Pupils should be made aware of their current level by their teacher. Mathematics is split into six distinct teaching areas: Number, Algebra, Geometry and Measure, Statistics, Ratio & Proportion and Probability.
