2 Mathematics – aims that all pupils.. become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions Wandsworth Children's Services

3 Links across the curriculum Numeracy and mathematics statement in preamble; developing mathematics in all subjects so pupils understand and appreciate the importance of mathematics Coherence with content in other subjects links across to science, computing and geography financial literacy in citizenship not only about number - applying geometric, algebraic and probabilistic understanding across curriculum subjects scientific method - understanding cyclical process of collecting, presenting and analysing data. using mathematics to solve both routine and non-routine problems across all subjects Wandsworth Children's Services

4 New attainment targets The same for every subject: ‘By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study’. Wandsworth Children's Services

5 Primary mathematics – key features higher expectation overall - benchmarked against age- related expectations in other nations conceptual development of number addressed in detail, especially in relation to arithmetic and proportionality fewer things in more depth in primary so handling data has less prominent and probability not introduced till Key Stage 3 earlier and more challenging requirement for multiplication tables clear expectations around written methods in addition to mental methods earlier and more challenging requirement for fractions and decimals Increased requirement for pupils to use formulae for volume and to calculate the area of shapes other than squares and rectangles probability has been removed Increased requirement for understanding of proportional reasoning – for example through volume and calculations with fractions strong steer that the use of calculators should be restricted until the later years of primary Ratio, proportion and algebra in year 6 PoS Wandsworth Children's Services

6 KS3 – key features Higher expectations overall, with increased requirements in the areas needed for calculus in the sixth form, for example algebra, geometry, proportion and rates of change. Less detailed than primary and set out for all key stage Increased level of challenge around the theory of number by introducing prime numbers and surds in KS3 Increased requirements for algebra, geometry and measures and ratios, proportion and rates of change – the three pillars for calculus at post 16 Raised expectations in probability Financial education has been reinforced with a focus on solving problems involving percentage increases and decreases, simple interest and repeated growth Wandsworth Children's Services

7 The school curriculum All schools are also required to set out their school curriculum on a year- by-year basis and make this information available online. Wandsworth Children's Services

8 NCETM – Recourses to support curriculum development Including… ‘Developing a Scheme of Work’ resources: Year 7 Scheme of work Year 8 Scheme of work with appendix of NCETM resources Year 9 Scheme of work Year 10 Scheme of work with appendix of NCETM resources VOCABULARY RESOURCE bulary.pdf Wandsworth Children's Services

9 The new National Curriculum can be found at: for-education/series/national-curriculum Or Wandsworth Children's Services
