Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Mathematics

"Mathematics knows no races or geographic boundaries; for mathematics, the cultural world is one country."

David Hilbert 

At Harris Academy Tottenham, we are part of the federation Maths hub, meaning that our new Maths curriculum is developed by leaders in the field.

Each year group has been allocated appropriate content to ensure all students have the opportunity to achieve the highest levels of progress and attainment at GCSE. There are generally 3-5 units each half term.

In Year 7 and 8, we will ensure that all students achieve fluency in their Mathematics, developing a deep understanding of fundamental concepts and being able to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. Students will learn how to reason mathematically and develop understanding through identifying and communicating relationships between different strands of Mathematics and building on prior knowledge. Students will learn to apply their Mathematics to variety problems with increasing sophistication and will be given the opportunity and encouragement to persevere in seeking solutions.

As a department, we hope that the changes made to the curriculum at KS3 will prepare our students in gaining the mathematical knowledge and skills needed for life in modern Britain, secure access into and success in further education and raise standards to compete in a global job market.

Key Stage 3

Year 7

In Year 7, Students will have the opportunity to study Number, Algebra, Shape and Space and data which will help them gain the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in GCSE, A-Levels and further education.

In Autumn 1 they will learn the basics of number involving Multiplying and dividing by powers of 10 as well as estimating and calculating with decimals. These skills will give them a firm foundation for the other topics that will follow later in the year which are Percentages, Angles, Fractions, Displaying data, Factors and Averages. 

ILT will be given weekly and will consist of worksheets, mymaths and research. All students will be able to get help for ILT after school and during some lunchtime.

Year 8

In Year 8, Students will have the opportunity to study Number, Algebra, Shape and Space and data which will lead on from the subjects studied in year 7. This will help them gain the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in GCSE, A-Levels and further education.

In Autumn 1 they will learn the basics of Algebra indices substitutions and percentages. These skills will give them a firm foundation for the other topics that will follow later in the year which are Conversions, equations, Ratio, Circles , Pythagoras Theorem, Volume and Constructions. All of these topics will feature in their GCSE exam and are the basis for studying Mathematics at a higher level.  

ILT will be given weekly and will consist of worksheets, mymaths and research. All students will be able to get help for ILT after school and during some lunchtime.

Key Stage 4

Overview of content

  • Number
  • Algebra
  • Geometry
  • Measures
  • Statistics
  • Probability
  • Applied Mathematics and Functional Skills (Using and Applying Maths)

Course Title: GCSE Mathematics A

Exam Board: Edexcel

How it is assessed:

  • Two written papers (one non-calculator/one calculator)
  • 1 hour 45 minutes: each contributes 50% of the final grade
  • Tiered papers - Foundation Tier grades C-G available Higher Tier grades A*-D available (E allowed);
  • The functional elements of mathematics are assessed on each paper: 30-40% of the Foundation Tier papers; 20-30% of the Higher Tier papers.

As part of the Accelerated Curriculum, Key Stage 4 students complete the Edexcel GCSE Linear Mathematics A course over 2 years. The GCSE Mathematics course encourages students to develop confidence in, and a positive attitude towards, Mathematics and to recognise the importance of mathematics in their own lives and to society. This course prepares students to make informed decisions about the use of technology, the management of money, further learning opportunities and career choices. GCSE mathematics is also a pre-requisite for those planning to study Mathematics at A-Level and University.

Towards the end of the two years, students will be entered to do their GCSE in Year 10 if they are ready and able to attain their target grade. These students will then be given the opportunity to complete an additional mathematics qualification,  which will be ideal in preparation for students who wish to continue with Mathematics at AS and A Level, and perhaps go on to Further Mathematics. It is also suitable for students who is considering taking numerate subjects for their AS and A Level.

Important dates:

Half-term assessments will be in the last week of each half-term.

Independent Learning termly tasks and deadlines:

ILT tasks will be set weekly by class teachers and to be completed in their ILT books.

Scores will be recorded and used in student assessment.

Extra Curricular

There will be after school homework clubs as well as booster sessions for students to help improve their grade.

Throughout the year there will be Strategy games clubs which will help students’ problem solving skills which is transferable to Mathematics.
