Department: Mathematics  
Year7 Year 8 Year 9 Year 10 Year 11

Number and Calculation:

  • Consolidate the rapid recall of number facts, including positive integer compliments to 100, multiplication facts to 10 x 10 and associated division facts.
  • Interpret decimal notation and place value; multiply and divide whole numbers and decimals by 10, 100 or 1000.
  • Order decimal including measurements, changing these to the same units.
  • Round whole numbers to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000 and decimals including measurements to the nearest whole number or 1 decimal place.
  • Use known facts and place value to multiply and divide two-digit numbers by a single digit number, e.g. 45 x 6, 96 ÷ 6.
  • Know and apply tests of divisibility by 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 and 100.
  • Use known facts, place value to multiply simple decimals by one-digit numbers e.g. 0.8 x 6.
  • Recognise the equivalence of simple fractions, decimals and percentages.
  • Simplify fractions by cancelling common factors and identify equivalent fractions; change an improper fraction to a mixed number, and vice versa. Convert terminating decimals to fractions e.g. 0.23 = 23 ÷100
  • Compare two fractions b convert the fractions to decimals, e.g. and
  • Recognise negative numbers as positions on a number line, and order, add and subtract positive and negative numbers in context.

Algebra and Geometry:

  • Choose suitable units of measurement to estimate, measure, calculate and solve problems in everyday contexts.
  • Use letters to represent unknown numbers or variables; know the meanings of the words term, expression and equation.
  • Know that algebraic operations follow the same order as arithmetic operations.
  • Construct simple algebraic expressions by using letters to represent numbers.
  • Simplify linear expressions e.g. collect like terms; multiply a constant over a bracket.
  • Generate terms of an integer sequence and find a term given its position in the sequence; find simple term-to-term rules.
  • Generate sequences from spatial patterns and describe the general term in simple cases.

Handling Data and Measure:

  • Identify, describe, visualise and draw 2D shapes in different orientations.
  • Use the notation and labelling conventions for points, lines, angles and shapes.
  • y using diagrams, or by using a calculator to Name and identify side, angle and symmetry properties of special quadrilaterals and triangles, and regular polygons with 5, 6 and 8 sides.
  • Estimate the size of acute, obtuse and reflex angles to the nearest 10 degrees.
  • Decide which date would be relevant to an inquiry and collect and organise the data.
  • Design and use a data collection sheet or questionnaire for a simple survey.
  • Use the language of probability to describe and interpret results involving likelihood and chance.
  • Understand and use the probability scale from 0 to 1.
  • Find probabilities based on equally likely outcomes in simple contexts.
