Course Content:

Harris Academy Wimbledon follows the Harris Federation mathematics schemes of work for Year 7. They have been written in line with the aims and ethos of the new national curriculum and assessments.

During the year, 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 a variety of problems with increasing sophistication and will be given the opportunity and encouragement to persevere in seeking solutions. This means that during Year 7 and into Year 8, we will teach fewer things in greater depth. More time may be spent on one topic to secure thorough understanding of key concepts, favouring a mastery approach to teaching. Expectations are that all students should achieve in line with the aims of the new curriculum, but students will be further challenged by questions that require deeper understanding or more complex problem solving in the focus topic rather than moving on to the next one.

Course Text Books/Websites:

We do not follow any specific text book. Websites include:

www.mymaths.co.uk – homework will be set on this. Each activity also contains a lesson pupils can work through if extra support is needed. Every pupil will have a login and password.

www.corbettmaths.com – Very useful website with videos and work sheets for extra fluency/exam practice.

https://www.bbc.com/bitesize/subjects/zqhs34j – BBC Bitesize KS3 link. Useful for revision.

Additional Materials/Equipment required:

Every pupil must own and bring in a scientific calculator every lesson, specifically the Casio FX-85GT Plus or Casio FX-83GT Plus. This calculator provides every function pupils will need to deal with from KS3 to A Level. A link can be found here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Casio-FX-85GTPLUS-SB-UT-Scientific-Calculator/dp/B00364NNU6/ref=sr_1_2?s=officeproduct&ie=UTF8&qid=1536851845&sr=1-2&keywords=casio+calculator

Students may purchase a generic CGP KS3 revision guide to help them with their studies, though this is not essential due to the resources provided on MyMaths.

Home Support:

Sit with your son/daughter during their online homework if they are struggling and guide them through the lessons where necessary and applicable. Encourage them to complete extra tasks where time permits. Encourage them to complete mathematical tasks around the house where possible to keep them engaged with their mathematics (e.g. can you work out how much our food bill is this week in your head?). Watching ‘mathematical’ programmes, or at least segments of programmes where mathematics is present (like ‘Countdown’) is also very helpful.
