Key Stage 3

About the Course

The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, can reason mathematically and can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems.

What will students learn?

  • Number
  • Algebra
  • Ratio
