Across our Mathematics curriculum we aim for students to become fluent in the core concepts of mathematics and reason mathematically in order to solve problems. With spaced retrieval and interleaving topics, students are encouraged to explore and deepen their knowledge of connections between topics. It is our aim to equip students with the mathematical skills they will need beyond school and to pique their interest in the subject in the hope they continue to study mathematics further.

**Linear Equations**

In this section students study solving equations with 1, 2 and 3 steps, brackets, fractions and unknowns both sides

**Statistics Representation & Interpretation**

In this sections, students will learn how to draw and interpret bar charts, pie charts, pictograms.

**Constructions & Loci**

In this section, students will learn how to construct triangles, perpendicular bisectors, angle bisectors and solve loci problems using compasses and ruler

People solve equations everyday without realising they are equations. For example working out someone’s ages if they are 10 years older than you, calculating the amount of profit they will make if they make a certain number of sales.

Analysing real life data

Engineers use loci to decide where to lay pipes or place satellites so they reach everywhere.

**Ratio, Proportion & Rates of Change**

Simplifying and sharing into ratios, solving direct and inverse proportion problems including best buys and recipe questions

**Powers & Standard Form**

Simplifying expressions involving indices

Converting to and from standard form

**Transformations & Congruency**

How to carry out and describe rotations, reflections, translations, enlargement

**How can I use this Maths in “Real-life”?**

Scaling recipes up and down for a different number of people

Scientists use standard form to do calculations in space or with atoms as the numbers are really large or small numbers

Transformations are seen everywhere in real life – when looking in a mirror, a spaceship rotating, programming a robot

**Revision for GCSE Exams**

Students will study any topic they have not previously grasped fully. These topics will be identified using mocks and past papers.

**How can I use this Maths in “Real-life”?**

Applying everything they have learned in maths to different situations.
