Maths

Maths Curriculum Intent

Mathematics teaches students to solve problems when they do not appear to have all the information required to do so. It teaches them how to think and work systematically, critically analyse information and effectively communicate the steps within their thinking. Our curriculum adopts a ‘no tricks’ approach to teaching, as we believe everybody can do mathematics.

MATHS STRANDS

Number

Number is interleaved throughout the five years. Number includes teaching students about numerical structure and calculation, fractions, decimals and percentages and measures and accuracy.

Algebra is interleaved throughout the five years. Algebra includes teaching student’s algebraic notation, vocabulary and manipulation, graphs, solving equations and inequalities and sequences.

Algebra

Ratio, Proportion, and rates of change

Students begin to learn about proportion through calculating and using fractions and percentages. They are introduced to proportion in y8 and ratio in y9. Within this content the students are taught to use ratio notation, simplify ratios, and divide quantities using ratios. In y10 and y11 this content is linked to algebra and graphs to support students understand how to calculate rates of change e.g. gradient of a line.
Geometry and measures are interleaved throughout the five years. Within this content students are taught the properties of 2D and 3D shape and how to construct them. They are also taught how to calculate perimeter, area and volume of shape and use units of measurement. They learn about angle facts and bearings and when they reach KS4 they are introduced to Pythagoras and Trigonometry to calculate missing sides and angles in triangles.

Geometry and Measures

Probability

Probability is interleaved throughout the five years. In this are of maths students learn to apply their knowledge of fractions, decimals, and percentages to calculate likelihood and chance of events occurring both theoretically and experimentally. Students are taught how to use tables and diagrams such as sample space diagrams, tree diagrams and Venn diagrams to help them calculate independent and dependent events.
Statistics is interleaved throughout the five years. The core of the statistics content is to teach students both how to draw and interpret a variety of graphs and charts such as bar charts, pie charts and frequency polygons in ks3. In Ks4 students are introduced to cumulative frequency, box plots and histograms. Students are also taught about different types of data, sampling and the importance of bias.

• Use Pythagoras’ theorem in context or to solve other geometrical problems - for example to find the distance between two coordinates.
• Choose an appropriate trigonometric ratio that can be used in a given situation.
• Understand that sine, cosine and tangent are functions of an angle.
• Know the trigonometric ratios, sinθ = opp/hyp, cosθ = adj/hyp, tanθ = opp/adj.
• Set up and solve a trigonometric equation to find a missing side in a right-angled triangle.
• Set up and solve a trigonometric equation to find a missing angle in a right-angled triangle.
Topic 13
Averages
All students will be taught to:
• Find the mean, median and mode from a list of data.
• Know when to use each average and why.
• Use the mean to find a missing number in a set of data
• Understand the range as a measure of spread (or consistency)
• Make comparisons using averages or the range
• Estimate the range from a grouped and ungrouped frequency table
• Find the mode and median from a frequency table.
• Find the mean from a frequency table.
• Find the interval that contains the modal group median from grouped data.
• Find the estimated mean from grouped frequency data.
• Find any average from a range of graphs and diagrams.
Topic 14
Vectors
All students will be taught to:
• Describe vectors as 2D translations.
• Add and subtract column vectors and multiply column vectors by a scalar.
• Add and subtract diagrammatic vectors and multiply diagrammatic vectors by a scalar.
• Recognise that when one vector is a scalar multiple of another then the lines will be parallel.
Topic 15
Other Graphs
All students will be taught to:
• Recognise, sketch and interpret graphs of linear and quadratic functions.
• Recognise, sketch and interpret graphs of cubic functions, the reciprocal function y = 1/x.
• Plot and interpret graphs in real contexts to find approximate solutions to problems.
