THE NATIONAL CURRICULUM

The subject of Maths is an integral lesson within the national curriculum. Students should be able to understand the key concepts and different mathematical formula in order to enhance their knowledge and increase their cognitive ability.

The fundamental aims of the Maths subject include:

  • Applying arithmetic to solve problems;
  • Understanding the difference between accuracy and estimation;
  • Expressing arithmetic using algebraic equations and formula;
  • Learning how to carefully lay out sets of data using graphs and charts;
  • Understanding averages in terms of mean, mode, median and range;
  • Improving on their basic mathematical skills, before advancing on to more technical and challenging mathematical concepts;
  • Improving children’s confidence in their mathematical abilities, allowing them to grasp different topics of maths and how they can apply these techniques to their work.
KEY STAGE 3 CURRICULUM

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

  • Numbers and Calculations;

a) If the mean of this set of data is 19, what is the missing number?

b) If the mean and range of this set of data is equal, what is the missing number?

c) If the mean of this set of data is 13, and the range is 19, what is the two missing numbers, assuming that both these numbers are the same value?

Question 3

The below table shows the results of 10 student’s Maths and English scores. Both tests were out of 20.

a) Plot this data on the scatter graph below.

b) Draw a line (if applicable) of best fit through the data.

c) Is the data positive, negative or show no correlation. If so, is it weak or strong? How can you tell?

Question 4

The following table shows the daily earnings of an independent book publishing company. /p>

a) Calculate the mode.

b) Calculate the range.

c) Calculate the median.

SAMPLE ANSWERS

Question 1

a) Unlikely

b) Likely

c) Impossible

Question 2

a) 40

b) 4

c) 7 and 7

Question 3

a)

b)

c) The line of best fit shows a weak positive correlation between the data. Generally, when someone scores highly in English, they also score highly in Maths. Although, this is not always the case, many of the results do show a weak relationship between test scores.

Question 4

a) 4 and 5 cars

(Both these categories have the value 24.)

b) 6

(Highest value subtract the lowest number of cars = 6 – 0 = 0)

c) 4

(Frequency total is 82. The middle number is 41. This number would occur in the fourth category (number of cars 4). So therefore the median is 4.)

All it takes is a little bit of time and practice!
