Mathematics: Curriculum Outline (Year 7)
The outline below in an indication of the syllabus taught in Year 7. Please note that this should be read in conjunction with the Homework Policy which can be found on page 19 of the Handbook for Parents and Students which is distributed at the beginning of each year.
How is Maths taught?
Maths is taught in two bands: 'x' (Houses CFJ) and 'y' (Houses MRT). Each band is divided into four groups set by ability from November of Year 7. Movement between sets is possible.
The topics covered in each of the themed units are listed below. Homework will be set which consolidates these topics, and will require the use of computers. Ideas for extension work are also listed if you would like to support your daughter in extra study at home. Students are taught in two 1 hour lessons per week.
Data Handling Transition Project ‘Me and my…’:
Pupils develop statistics and data handling skills by collecting and analysing data about themselves.
Investigate the World
Pupils develop number and shape skills in the context of populaton and area data about countries of the world and the shape and symmetry properties of flags.
Pupils develop algebra and number skills by considering `mind reading’ card, dice and domino tricks.
Life in 3D
A unit of work which develops 3D shape skills through a project to design houses, washing machines and investigate other amazing facts about everyday life.
The themed units will be followed by lessons to consolidate number skills in preparation for the end of year progress test in early June.
