Maths Key Stage 3 Aims Pupils in KS3 will be following the New Maths National Curriculum for 2014 using the Edexcel Maths Progress Scheme Of Work and resources. The resources are split into three pathways: Pi, Theta and Delta with Alpha supporting the lower ability students. The emphasis in this programme of study is to prepare pupils for KS4 and to develop numeracy skills. Because there is a requirement in the new National Curriculum for pupils to reasoning mathematically , certain topics will be taught using the bar modelling method from the Singapore Maths Programme of study. This will allow pupils to use a concrete to pictorial to abstract approach that gives them a sound basis for problem solving in KS4.

Maths Key Stage 4 Aims The Edexcel Linear A GCSE Foundation qualification in Mathematics runs over two years and is compatible with the new 2014 National Curriculum requirements for Mathematics. The final assessment takes place in June 2015 for current year 11’s and June 2016 for current year 10’s.The course is supplemented with the bar modelling methodology for solving problems that was introduced in KS3.The pupils can access the Edexcel Active teach website for revision and homework and there is also access via the LGFL,(London Grid For Learning), to Maths Space which offers guidance and instruction on topic based exam questions.

Mathematics Functional Skills Aims The Edexcel Functional Skills syllabus starts at year 9 with the Entry Level 3 Functional Skills course, it then progresses to Level 1 in year 10 and onto Level 2 in year 11. It gives the pupils a practical insight into how mathematics is applied when solving everyday real life problems. 

Year 9 The Entry Level 3 Functional Skills course is an introduction to Functional Skills and is assessed in May 2015. By the end of this course learners will: Understand the mathematical skills required. Be able to transfer the skills learned by applying the skills in different context and settings. Become better at being able to apply a problem solving approach to everyday contexts. Become confident enough to be able to complete the Functional skills assessment test. To encourage learners to move onto higher level skills, to provide support, encouragement and the confidence to progress up through the levels. As far as possible the functionality of the E.L.3 course will overlap with the year 9 Mathematics scheme of work enabling the pupils to cover both Functional Skills and the Mathematics syllabus together. 

Autumn Term 1 – Solve practical problems involving multiplication and division by 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10. Use metric units in everyday situations 
Autumn Term 2 – Round to the nearest 10 or 100 Recognise and describe number patterns

Spring Term 2 – Extract, use and compare information from lists, tables, simple charts and simple graphs Add and subtract using threedigit numbers 
Summer Term 1 – Understand decimals to two decimal places in practical contexts Understand and use simple fractions 
Summer Term 2 – Complete simple calculations involving money and measures Understand, estimate, measure and compare length, capacity, weight and temperature 
Year 10 Year 10 follow the Edexcel Level 1 Functional Skills course that is assessed in May 2015.

Select and apply mathematics in an organised way to find solutions to practical problems for different purposes. Use appropriate checking procedures at each stage. Interpret results, consider the appropriateness of conclusions, and communicate solutions to practical problems, providing explanations As far as possible the functionality of the Level 1 course will overlap with the year 10 Mathematics scheme of work enabling the pupils to cover both Functional Skills and the Mathematics syllabus together.
