### Curriculum Overview Mathematics Department 2019-2020

At KS3 the schemes of learning are designed to support a mastery approach to teaching and learning and have been designed to support the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum. Mastery of mathematics is a continuum. At each stage of learning students should be able to demonstrate a deep, conceptual understanding of the topic and be able to build on this over time. Mastery is not about just being able to memorise key facts and procedures, this tends to lead to a superficial understanding which can easily be forgotten.

Algebra, geometry and measures, ratio, proportion and rates of change, statistics and probability are taught at KS4 and students experience AO1, AO2 and AO3 type questions as well as exposure to problem solving. In Year 10 those suited to the higher tier will start the learning of grades 9 to 6 topics.
