Mathematics

Year 7

Within year 7 Mathematics is introduced and developed through schemes of work that focus on the key assessment objectives of fluency, mathematical reasoning and problem solving. Learners are encourage to explore a variety of concepts within number, algebra, geometry, proportional reasoning and data handling, and are supported in making links between each unit taught. Learners’ experiences within the classroom are supplemented with homework and access to a number of varied resources in order to stimulate independent study and an interest in the subject.

Students are assessed at the beginning of the year in order to identify each learner’s numeracy skills which are then developed upon throughout the curriculum.

Year 8

Building upon the progress made during year 7, Year 8 students will explore more advanced concepts and develop a higher level of problem solving within number, algebra, geometry, proportional reasoning and data handling. Learners will often come in to contact with problems centered in real-life contexts and will look to utilise their conceptual knowledge in order to find a solution. This deeper understanding and problem solving mentality will help to ensure that learners are prepared for the updated GCSE syllabus in Key Stage 4.

Learners’ experiences within the classroom are supplemented with homework and access to a number of varied resources in order to stimulate independent study and an interest in the subject.

Year 9

The mathematics schemes of learning for KS4 follow the AQA GCSE Mathematics 8300 specification and builds on the content developed in KS3. The scheme of work has been designed to ensure smooth progression between KS3 and KS4 and students will follow either the foundation or higher tier routes depending on prior attainment.

At HAB, the teaching and learning of the new GCSE syllabus centres around the key questions:

  • Are students developing their ability to reason mathematically and explain their mathematical thinking?
  • Are students encouraged to make choices about the methods, strategies and knowledge that they will use to solve a problem?
  • Are students encouraged to work independently and show resilience when they encounter challenging problems?

Through their three years of GCSE studies, students continue to reason mathematically and engage in problem solving across the core strands of mathematics (number, algebra, geometry, proportional reasoning and data handling). Conceptual and procedural fluency are emphasised and students are regularly assessed in order to monitor their progress against the assessment objectives of the AQA GCSE specification.

Learners’ experiences within the classroom are supplemented with homework and access to a number of varied resources in order to stimulate independent study and an interest in the subject.
