At Robert Clack School we believe in providing all learners with access to and success in Mathematics learning.  We do this via a balance of concepts, skills and application and by employing the appropriate use of technology.  Robert Clack School’s Mathematics programme builds on what students already know, making learning meaningful and relevant; we take the formal language of Mathematics and then relate it to everyday language.  Our Mathematics curriculum provides a sequential, hands-on programme in which learners are encouraged to use a variety of concrete aids and resources, including calculators and computers.  Programmes of study follow the new National Curriculum which emphasises the use of problem solving, fluency and mathematical reasoning. Robert Clack School is responsible for ensuring that our learners develop the competence, confidence and interest needed to become life-long learners of Mathematics.

 

 

Year 9 Overview Mathematics is for everyone. The GCSE course and qualification enable students to engage with, explore, enjoy and succeed in maths.  We love maths, it is diverse, engaging and essential in equipping students with the right skills to reach their future destination.

Students learn the basics, then advance to apply them in different contexts. The students are challenged as they progress, easing them into the examination at the end of year 11.

The aims and objectives of the mathematics course are:

• To acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve real life problems

• To reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences and draw conclusions

• To comprehend, interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context.

 

Year 9 students will begin studying a three year GCSE (9-1) course for examination at the end of year 11. The qualification will be graded on a nine-grade scale from 9 to 1 where 9 is the highest grade.

 

Students will study each of the following in more depth:

1. Number

2. Algebra

3. Ratio, proportion and rates of change

4. Geometry and measures

5. Probability

6. Statistics

 

The examination is two-tiered allowing all students to access the course at a level suitable for them.

 

Foundation - levels 1 to 5

Higher - levels 4 to 9

 

There will be 3 equally weighted written papers in each tier.
