Subject Description

Students will study 11 different topics throughout the Year, as shown below. We aim to consolidate and extend their understanding of Year 7 Mathematics and prepare them for the demands of Year 9 Mathematics.

Currently the Cambridge Essential Mathematics text book ise our primary resource, however, these may be supplemented by a variety of worksheets and Interactive media. PowerPoint presentations or “Hotmaths” may be used to assist visual learners. 

Students who have difficulty with mathematics may be eligible for the Modified Maths class which is generally smaller in size and works at a pace that is better suited to students who struggle with mathematical concepts.

Higher ability students may be eligible for the Acceleratted Maths class.

Maths Help is organised at times to suit both the student and teacher concerned when required.
