Mathematics

A summary of KS3 and its relevance
Our KS3 curriculum aims to lay solid foundations to enable each student to reason mathematically and solve problems successfully. Throughout KS3 students will study a variety of topics covering number, algebra, ratio and proportion, rates of change, geometry, measure and probability. Each year they will develop the breadth and depth of their knowledge based upon their existing understanding of a topic. students will be given a variety of tasks to help them develop, choose and apply the mathematical skills that they will need in later life.

A summary of the skills acquired
In addition to learning basic mathematical facts, students will be taught how to interpret questions, select the mathematics required and solve the problem. They will also be able to interpret their results and comment on them in respect of the original question. As mathematics is an interconnected subject, students will be able to draw upon a variety of skills and apply them in context.
