# Maths & Computing

Mathematics is central to our understanding of the world in which we live, to our control of our environment, and to the organisation of our society. It underpins science, technology, medicine, economics and government. We believe we offer a programme which enables all students to reach their potential and provides them with a necessary grounding in mathematics for life outside school.

## Extra-Curricular Activities

The Maths department offers lunchtime and afterschool revision sessions for GCSE students.

## KS3: What will students learn?

The KS3 curriculum covers: Induction unit, whole number, decimals, sequences algebra expressions, perimeter and area, probability, fractions, decimals, percentages, angles and shapes, coordinates, rounding calculations, functions and graphs data charts, ratio and proportion, equations, construction, averages, multiples, factors, primes, decimal calculations, algebra, transformations and symmetry.

## KS3: Assessment

KS3 assessment tests in maths have four levels: Level 3-5 Level 4-6 Level 5-7 Level 6-8 Students have three assessments each year. The KS3 Core Test takes place in spring of Year 9.
