Mathematics

Curriculum Overview

Years 7 to 10 follow the ‘Road Map’ above.  All year groups work on the same unit, but have different starting points depending on their year and ability.

For example, for unit 1: Integers, Powers and Roots, year 7 set 4 will begin by looking at square and cube numbers (Grade 2) and then multiples and factors (Grade 3), while year 10 set 1 will be studying surds (grade 8) and standard form (Grade 5).

Year 11 begin working on exam preparation from September.  They sit an exam paper weekly (either in class or as home learning) and their lessons are planned from the gaps in their knowledge identified by these assessments.

Should you require any further information on the material covered throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.
