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 mr-mathematics.com 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.

  1. Jonathan, what a truly brilliant site! I came here via your post on TES forums and have immediately bookmarked it for frequent and regular use. I am an upper KS2 specialist currently working as a private residential tutor for a home-educating family with two boys, the elder of whom is 13. He is not the quickest at maths, so I have been in my comfort zone so far, but we are starting to work towards level 6 now and this site is really going to help me plan progression and keep him broadly in line with his contemporaries. I can’t imagine how much work and effort has gone into this and I take my hat off to you!

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]

Plotting Quadratic Graphs on Cartesian Axes

In recent examiner reports it is noted how important it is for students to understand the properties of a parabola  when plotting quadratic graphs on Cartesian axes.  Students who have a secure understanding of parabolas can use them to correct miscalculated values in their table of results and are more likely to attain full marks […]
