Mathematics
Aims
 We aim to increase pupil confidence in maths so that they can express themselves and their ideas clearly using the language of maths with confidence.
 We want children to take pride in their mathematics knowledge and achievements.
 We are continuously aiming to raise the standard of achievement in mathematics at Abu Bakr Girls School.
 We aim to work in partnership with children, their parents and support services.
 We want pupils to be passionate about mathematics and not to be afraid of mathematics.
Students in year 7 and 8 follow a 2 year scheme of work, allowing pupils to develop their mathematical skills through core topics, as well as engaging pupils with functional activities. Students are assessed after each topic as well as termly to ensure progress is made and interventions are put in place for required assistance. The two year scheme allows pupils to progress in a structured manner allowing them to develop all key areas of Mathematics.
At the end of the two year scheme pupils will have covered all topics which include
1 Number
2 Algebra
3 Ratio, proportion and rates of change
4 Geometry and measures
5 Probability
6 Statistics
Year 7 and 8 will cover:
Term 1:  Term 2:  Term 3: 
Whole numbers and decimals  Graphs  Constructions and 3D shapes 
Measures , perimeter and area  Whole number calculation  Sequences 
Expressions and formulae  Statistics  Decimal Calculations 
Fraction , decimal and percentage  Transformation and symmetry  Ratio and proportion 
Angles and 2D shapes.  Equations  Probabilty 
Factors and multiples

For further detailed information about each topic please refer to the digital books in www.kerboodle.com.
There are two tiers are available Foundation and Higher.
The qualification will be graded on a ninegrade scale from 9 to 1 using the total mark across all three papers where 9 is the highest grade.
Individual papers are not graded.
 Foundation tier: grades 1 to 5.
 Higher tier: grades 4 to 9
Homework
Homework is given once a week. This work reflects and consolidates what has been taught in class and should take no more than 45 minutes to complete.
