KEY STAGE 3: MATHS IS EASY – RATIO, PROPORTION AND RATES OF CHANGE

Key Stage Three Maths

Key Stage 3 is the school years between the ages of 11 and 14. These years include Year 7, 8 and 9 – the beginner years of secondary school. These years are fundamental in preparing students for their GCSEs (which will begin in Year 10).

With the National Curriculum continuously being revised and updated, we wanted to create revision guides that would demonstrate the skill level expected from children of the ages of 11 to 14. Our revision guides include all of the information required for the KS3 Maths subject. With the help of our guide, we are sure your child’s knowledge will grow in leaps and bounds.

This unique KS3 maths guide and testing book contains a whole range of practice questions for your child to complete, in order to ensure their knowledge is bettered in this topic.

This revision booklet focuses specifically on ratio, proportion and rates of change. This guide is the ultimate guide for any child who struggles with any concept in relation to ratio, proportion or rates of change.

Key Stage Three Revision Resources

As mentioned before, we have created several maths resources, each of which has a specificity. That means, your child can learn a topic of Maths in as much detail as possible, before moving on to the next category.

We have broken down our revision guides into the following guides:

  • KS3 Maths (Numbers and Calculations)
  • KS3 Maths (Probability and Statistics)
  • KS3 Maths (Geometry and Measures)
  • KS3 Maths (Working with Algebra)
  • KS3 Maths (Practice Papers – Foundation)
  • KS3 Maths (Practice Papers – Higher)

See, how the books have been broken down into very specific topics. We believe your child will make the most out of their learning this way – by engaging in a topic to the fullest, before moving on to something else!

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE GUIDE?

Enough about our other revision guides, let’s focus on the contents of this guide.

So, what does the KS3 Ratio, Proportion and Rates of Change guide contain?
