Schemes of Work for Maths Teachers and Schools

Schemes of Work for Maths Teachers

As a Head of Maths I understand the importance of a detailed, flexible and simple scheme of work.  I designed the Key Stage 3 and GCSE schemes of work for maths teachers available at to be just that.  They are fully aligned with the current  specifications and are suitable for study across all UK examination boards including Edexcel, AQA, WJEC and OCR.

The schemes provide a long and medium term plan for the entire  Key Stage 3, Foundation and Higher GCSE courses.  They emphasise helping teachers to create pace and challenge for every class as each lesson draws on and extends previous learning so progress is fluid and rapid.

Linked within the schemes are engaging, interactive and fully differentiated presentations that are designed to empower the teacher to enthuse their students.  The presentations are available as a Smart Notebook, ActivInspire Flipchart and Microsoft PowerPoint.  Every lesson comes with a plan to talk the teacher through the flow of the presentation and independent learning worksheet for consolidation.  There are additional links to informative blogs, group work activities, YouTube videos and much more.

Key Stage 3 Mathematics
In years 7 and 8 students are guided through hundreds of practice questions and worked examples covering the Key Stage 3 Maths curriculum.  Lessons teach mastery of number, algebra, shape and statistics by developing student's problem solving skills.  Worked examples are followed by a wealth of carefully scaffolded questions so students have plenty of initial practice followed by questions that stretch and challenge by applying links between topics.

GCSE Mathematics
In years 9, 10 and 11 there is a strong focus on reasoning, problem solving and fluency that will help students to become confident and enjoy the success they feel in their maths lessons. Topics and problems are introduced so students gain a conceptual understanding of mathematics and can progress at their own pace. Students build confidence by tackling multiple step problems that focus on application of concepts not recollection of knowledge.

Every lesson and maths worksheet has been designed and used by myself.  As well as a Head of Maths I am a certified teacher trainer and Master of Education specialising in Research in Mathematics Education.  These schemes of work for maths teachers represent my intention to help improve mathematics education around the world.

Proving Geometrical Relationships using Algebra

Back in May 2017 maths teachers around the country eagerly awaited the first exam for the new GCSE Mathematics syllabus.  Proving geometrical relationships using algebra featured at grade 9.  In Paper 1 of Edexcel’s test paper the last question of the higher tier looked like this. Edexcel wrote about student’s performance on this question in […]

Circles, Cylinders and Circular Shapes

Circles, cylinders and circular shapes follows on from area of 2D shapes and surface area of 3D cuboids and prisms which students study in Term 2 of Year 8.  In this unit students learn how to calculate the circumference and area of circles both as decimals and in terms of π.  Learning progresses from 2D […]

Drawing Histograms with Unequal Class Widths

Higher GCSE maths students are required to plot and interpret histograms with unequal class widths.  Drawing histograms with unequal class widths are very common in GCSE maths papers. Histograms versus bar charts Histograms look like bar charts but have important differences. Histograms use a continuous horizontal scale which means the bars touch so the difference […]
