Year 7 MATHEMATICS In Year 7 the subject covers the four main areas of Number, Algebra, Geometry and Measures

and Statistics. Pupils are also taught to use and apply Mathematics through functional tasks, investigations and real life problems. ICT is used to enhance the learning of the KS3 curriculum by using websites such as Mymaths and Nrich and software such as MathsWhizz and MathsPack. Pupils are assessed in their ability to solve problems with and without a calculator. Topics are taught predominantly at levels 4, 5 and 6 in all four main areas and pupils cover topics such as negative numbers, ratio, fractions, decimals and percentages. Pupils will also meet new topics such as straight line graphs, construct and solve linear equations and learn the properties of a circle.
