**Skills Taught:**

There is a renewed emphasis on students acquiring skills in ; Problem solving , Functionality and Mathematical Thinking.

There will be a much greater focus in teaching skills on applying and using mathematics to solve questions set in the real world. Students might be asked to answer questions on , for instance, decorating a room or designing a garden or perhaps paying bills or sorting out rotas for shop staff.

Students will also develop their ability to communicate the mathematics they have applied in order to solve a question- a requirement called the Quality of Written Communication.

The skills taught, throughout KS3 and KS4, will enable students to:

- develop fluent knowledge and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
- acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
- reason mathematically ,make deductions and inferences and draw conclusions
- comprehend ,interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context

Homework:

Students will be set a variety of tasks , ranging from

- online diagnostic questions from “ Hegarty Maths” – these will be differentiated and set in line with the current work being delivered
- Specific worksheets with 20 questions set each week on a range of topics
- Questions relevant to the current topic including research around a topic
- Past exam questions

**Background/Extended Learning**:

Students will have access to ALL topics through the Hegarty Maths links so they can extend their learning by looking at more challenging topics. Homework will have a “ Research and Background to Learning “ theme.
