This Key Stage 3 Maths course has been designed to gently introduce your child to the various aspects of the Key Stage 3 Maths curriculum.
The course has been designed to guide your child through the subject in logical, easy to follow steps building on their understanding as their confidence grows.
The course is written in an informal and lively style with plenty of diagrams and illustrations to keep your child engaged with the material. The focus throughout is on Maths in the real world, as a tool to help us solve practical problems and to underpin the rest of our studies.
The course contains Self-Assessment Tests and Tutor-marked assignments at various points in the course to help you and your child gauge their progress.
The course is divided into three one year sections, corresponding to the school years, 7, 8 and 9. Some students may take three years to complete the course, others may take two years or proceed even more quickly. By the end of the course, students should be in a good position to tackle a GCSE or IGCSE programme (Key Stage 4) in earnest.

Unit 1 covers the analysis and display of data: how to correctly construct various charts, tables, etc. alongside the correct usage of statistical terminology (mean, mode, median, range).
Unit 2 relates to general manipulation of numbers, using such methods as BIDMAS/BEDMAS/PEMDAS/etc., as well as introducing and expanding on factors and divisors, prime numbers, Lowest Common Multiples and Highest Common Factors, and roots.
Unit 3 is a deeper look at algebra than what students were introduced to in primary school, as students begin to learn the importance of formulae, and examine factorisation.
Unit 4 brings a layer of complexity to the four operations, as students begin to answer questions involving positive and negative fractions, and positive and negative improper fractions, alongside learning how to convert fractions to decimals/percentages and vice versa.
Unit 5 takes a look at geometry, as students learn more about what properties shapes can possess: whether some of their sides are parallel, whether angles present in the shape are corresponding, and so on. Students also learn the sum of angles in a triangle, and how to utilise that knowledge to determine the sum of angles in any polygon.
Unit 6 reminds students of place value, and recaps conversion between fractions, percentages and decimals. Students learn how to work with percentages greater than 100%,
