KS3 Mathematics

Name of Course
KS3 Mathematics

Students at KSSS follow key aspects of The National Curriculum based on the gaps that each student has.  We aim for students to be numerate and confident in this curriculum area.  Some students – if ready will take Functional Skills qualifications too.

Outline of Course
Students will cover ability appropriate work in maths, covering all topic areas. Multiplication Tables and Number are key areas that we wish our students to be confident in. Maths is cyclical, so topic areas will build on themselves as students move through Key Stage 3. In Year 9, students will begin studying topics for their GCSE course.

How it’s taught
 Classroom based tasks and activities, small group work. The course is very practically based to fully engage our students.

Topic Areas
Students will cover the areas of Number, Algebra, Ratio & Proportion, Geometry , Statistics and Probability. They will also undertake Functional Skills activities and work towards a qualification.

Tasks will be set by teachers within lessons, but also there will be activities sent home for the students to work through.

Students will have their own log in for mymaths and tasks will be set online.
