In Year 5 and Year 6 the focus is on extending the pupils’ understanding of the number system, and placing value to include larger integers, developing connections made between multiplication and division with fractions, decimals, percentages and ratio. Content includes reading Roman numerals, describing linear number sequences, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing with more than four digits, recognise and use square and cube numbers, add and subtract fractions with the same denominator, convert between different units of metric measure, identify 3D shapes and draw and identify angles,
At KS3 students will become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, will be able to reason mathematically following a line of enquiry, and solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking problems into smaller steps and persevering in seeking solutions. Students will look at numbers, algebra, ratio, proportion and rates of change, geometry and measures, probability, and statistics.
iGCSE Mathematics Specification A
Maths provides the opportunity for students to develop reasoning and problem solving skills, through handling numbers, algebra, shapes, and data. Higher tier students will cover the following units- decimals, special numbers powers and roots, algebraic manipulation, expressions formulae and rearranging formulae, linear equations and inequalities, sequences, graphical representation of data, statistical measures, fractions, percentages, ratio and proportion, indices and standard form, compound measures, geometry of shapes, real life graphs, linear graphs, quadratic equations and graphs, constructions and berings, perimeter area and volume, Pythagoras’ theorem, transformations, harder graphs and transformation of graphs, simultaneous equations, probability, degree of accuracy, set language, notation, and Venn diagrams, circle properties, advanced trigonometry, similar shapes, function notation, vectors, and calculus.
