## KEY STAGE 3: MATHS IS EASY – NUMBERS AND CALCULATIONS

### THE NATIONAL CURRICULUM

The national curriculum is a designed programme which creates uniformity within education. It is a mere concept to ensure that children are being taught certain subjects in order to improve their futures.

Maths is a core subject within the national curriculum, and every child will be expected to undergo maths lessons from early Key Stage years, to obtaining a GCSE in that subject.

The subject of maths teaches children basic mathematical skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division – essential for everyday life. Maths also goes beyond the basics and tackles topics such as fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios and a whole range of other areas.

Here at How2Become, we want to ensure that every child is equipped with the best resources to help them improve their learning.

The fundamental aims of the Maths subject include:

• Using basic calculations in order to work out sums;
• Highlighting the difference between accuracy and estimating, and when to use each;
• Understanding algebra and ways of expression;
• Using graphs and charts in order to display data;
• Understanding different averages including mean, mode, median and range;
• Learning the basics of mathematics in order to advance on to more challenging concepts;
• Building on children’s confidence so that they feel fully capable of using and applying basic mathematical concepts to their work.
KEY STAGE 3 CURRICULUM

In Key Stage 3, maths is broken down into several modules:

• Numbers and Calculations;
• Ratio, Proportion and Rates of Change;
• Geometry and Measures;
• Working with Algebra;
• Probability and Statistics.
