Mathematics Schemes of Work

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 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 help 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 lessons that are designed to empower the teacher to enthuse their students.

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]

How Write 3 Part Ratios

The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]
