The programme of study will cover topics in number, algebra, ratio and
proportion, geometry and measures, probability and statistics. Essentially the
work is a continuation and extension of the topics covered in KS3. Pupils will
develop a positive attitude, confidence and competence in Mathematics.
This will be done by developing:
1. Fluent knowledge and understanding of mathematical methods and
concepts
2. Skills to acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve
problems.
3. Ability to reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences and draw
conclusions.
4. Ability to comprehend, interpret and communicate mathematical information
in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context.
Pupils will demonstrate the ability to apply Mathematics to everyday situations.
Assessment: Most pupils’ work will be assessed continually during the course by
means of internal tests. The GCSE exam is sat at the end of the course.
Equipment: You are required to equip and familiarise yourself with the use of
appropriate equipment, i.e. protractor, pair of compasses, pen, pencil, ruler and
scientific calculator. You will have the option of purchasing equipment from the
Maths Office.
Progression: A good grade at GCSE Mathematics will help pupils access a
Mathematics A Level or other Maths based subjects.
