Mathematics is usually taught in ability sets: this means the more able children will be stretched, while children who struggle with Mathematics will take things more slowly, and be given more support.
New 1-9 2017 specification sample assessment materials for all exam boards.
Run by Graham Cumming, our in-house mathematics expert, the Mathematics Emporium contains a rich source of resources.
This is examined with three papers at the end of Year 11.
Each paper is 1 hour and 30 minutes long, paper 1 is non-calculator and papers 2 and 3 are calculator.
With all the topics the children will be studying, they’ll be developing ‘mathematical process’ skills, which include reasoning, analysis and evaluation.
At Key Stage 4 our students follow the new Edexcel GCSE course.Booklet contains a topic from each chapter in the Edexcel Linear textbook along with a corresponding exam question.Each question is indicated as calculator or non-calculator and has the relevant grading.Mathematics contributes to the school curriculum by developing students’ abilities to solve problems, to calculate, to reason logically, algebraically, and geometrically and to make sense of data.Mathematics is important for students in many other areas of study, particularly Science and Technology.All students will be taught skills in Number, Algebra, Ratio, proportion, rates of change, Geometry and Statistics and probability.Students are taught to solve familiar and unfamiliar problems in a range of numerical, algebraic and graphical contexts and in open-ended and closed form.Final column allows pupil self-assessment of the topic and question.The idea is to place knowledge of what is required to achieve the highest grades in the hands of the student.
