Aims:
In Year 7 we will build on the Numeracy Strategy that has been delivered in primary schools. We also aim to develop mathematical knowledge as well as oral, written and practical skills in a way which encourages confidence and provides satisfaction and enjoyment.

  • Algebra - sequences, equations, simplification of algebraic expressions.
  • Shape and space - angles, surface area and volume and construction.
  • Data handling - pie charts, stem and leaf diagrams and sample space diagrams, scattergraphs, probability.
Assessment:
Homework is given once each week and should take approximately thirty minutes. Assessments will be set each term with an end-of-year school examination to assess overall progress.
