 Key Stage 3

Pupils are expected to have access to the electronic online text books, details are given in school. Homework is set once a week. Mathematics is a subject where practice makes perfect. Pupils should expect to find lessons challenging but interesting, many topics require plenty of thought and effort put into the understanding of concepts.

In year 7 you will learn about the following:
Addition and subtraction of fractions and decimals, area, collecting and displaying data, coordinates, correlation, enlargements, equations, formulae, four operations with number, introducing geometry, metric units, nets and solids, number patterns, parallel Lines, parts of a whole, probability, straight lines, summarising and comparing data, symmetry and transformations, triangles and quadrilaterals.


In year 8 you will learn about the following:
Area, circles, continuous data, curved graphs, enlargements, equations and inequalities, formulae, fractions, fractions and percentages, numbers and indices, polygons, probability, Pythagoras’ Theorem, ratios, reflections, translations, rotations, review linear equations, scale drawing, simultaneous equations, solving equations, statistics, straight line graphs, travel graphs and volumes.

 

 Key Stage 4

In year 9 you will learn about the following:
Algebraic equations, algebraic factors, algebraic products, areas, volumes, constructions and loci, formulae, graphs, inequalities, statistics investigative work, organising and summarising data, percentages, probability, ratio and proportion, similar figures, simultaneous equations, transformations and trigonometry.

In year 10 you will learn about the following:

Algebra, algebraic manipulation and quadratics, angles, shapes and measures, congruence, constructions and loci, graphs and equations, graphs and lines, indices and standard form, inequalities, length, area and volume, measurements and bounds, numbers, probability, proportion, Pythagoras’ Theorem and trigonometry, sequences, similarity and simultaneous equations.

In year 11 you will learn about the following:
Statistics, transformations, transposition of formulae, more trigonometry, decimals and surds, circle theorems, quadratic equations, more simultaneous equations, equations of circles, functions and graphs, vectors and algebraic fractions.

If you study the AQA Further Mathematics Qualification you can expect to cover:
Equations of circles, functions and graphs, vectors, algebraic fractions, polynomials, quadratic inequalities, even more new trigonometry, calculus involving differentiation and finally matrices.

 

 Key Stage 5

Standard Mathematics A Level

Mathematics at this level is split into two main areas; pure mathematics and applied mathematics.

Over the course of the two years in pure mathematics you will learn about; proof, algebra and functions, coordinate geometry in the Cartesian plane, sequences and series, trigonometry, exponentials and logarithms, differentiation, integration, numerical methods, and vectors.

In applied mathematics you learn about; statistical sampling, data representation and interpretation, probability, statistical distributions, statistical hypothesis testing, kinematics, forces and Newton’s laws, moments.

 

 

Further Mathematics A Level

At this level mathematics is still split into two main areas; pure mathematics and applied mathematics.

Over the course of the two years you will learn all of the standard A Level syllabus along with the following; proof, complex numbers, matrices, further algebra and functions, further calculus, further vectors.

The remaining further mathematics qualification is made of a number of applied modules of statistics and mechanics.
