Mathematics Information Evening

The

aims of the Mathematics Department are:to give each pupil a healthy safe environment for learning, enabling them to maximise their own personal targets and achievement. to provide a challenging academic curriculum to develop problem solving skills. to bring awareness to pupils of mathematics all around us through our curriculum.  to encourage communication of ideas and sharing of information. to promote self esteem by valuing and affirming every individual for their efforts and achievements in our curriculum area.

Lesson Structure

Students have 3 x 1hr lessons per week.Emphasis in Y7 is on mental maths and written calculations.Lessons consist of Starter Main activities PlenaryStarter: short activity designed to start students thinking mathematicallyMain Activities: these can be multiple activities which introduce new concepts and have elements of sustained learning either independently, in pairs or as group work. Students are encouraged to discuss and share their methodology to the rest of the classPlenary: recaps main learning points from the lesson

Slide7

Assessment & ReportingHomework is set 2 out of the 3 lessons.Marked in class the next lesson, by students or peers.Immediate feedback, extra practice if required, move onto next part of the topic.Books taken in fortnightly to assess progress and give formal feedback.Progress Trackers outline aspects of topic covered, these are filled in at the start and at the end of the topic.Topics last for 3-5 lessons and tested formally then levelled.Levels are entered onto One Place.Parents’ Evening is Thursday 23rd January

This is often used well with whole numbers, but when there are decimals the place value causes problems.

Students often forget to add the ‘0’ when x by 10

Level

5 – ASSESSMENT CRITERIA

Number and Algebra

I

u

nderstand and can use decimal notation and place value

e.g.

I

know that in

5.239 the digit 9 represents nine thousandths, which is written as 0.009

I

can

multiply and divide integers and decimals by 10, 100, 1000 and explain

the effect

e.g. I can answer questions like

4

÷ ? = 0.04, 0.4 x 10 = ?,

?

x 1000 = 40 000, 0.4 ÷ ? = 0.004

I

can round decimals to the nearest decimal place

I

can put negative numbers in order

I

can recognise and use number patterns and relationships

e.g.

I

can tell if a number can be divided by 25

I

can

identify equivalent fractions and order fractions and decimals

I

can cancel

fractions to their simplest form by looking for highest common factors

I

can understand simple ratio problems

e.g.

In

the gym club there are 2 boys for every 3 girls. There are 30 children at the club. How many boys are there?

I

can c

alculate, including using all four operations, with decimals to 2 places

e.g. 543.65

+ 45.8 764.78 – 56.4 6.24 x 8 239.22

÷

6

I

can use a calculator where appropriate to calculate fractions and percentages of amounts

e.g. What is 14.5% of 56 litres?

I

can m

ultiply and divide three-digit by two-digit whole numbers without a calculator

e.g. I can calculate

673 × 24, 806 ÷ 26

I

can solve simple problems involving ordering, adding and subtracting negative numbers

e.g. I can calculate 62 + -51, 5 - -3, -3 + ? = 7, -2 - ? = 7

I

can solve simple problems involving ratio and direct proportion

e.g.

If

1 litre of fruit drink contains 200ml of orange juice, how much orange juice is there in 1.5 litres of fruit drink?

I

can e

stimate using approximations and check by using inverse operations

e.g.

I

know that 786

÷

38 is about 800

÷

40

.

I

can use a calculator to check

3 ÷ 7 = 0.4285714… with 7 x 0.4285714

I

can construct expressions and use simple formulae

e.g.

I

u

nderstand that a letter can stand for an unknown number or variable number and not a label, e.g. ‘5a’ cannot mean ‘5 apples’

I

can u

se and interpret coordinates in all four quadrants

e.g.

If

I am given the coordinates of three vertices of a parallelogram, I can find the

fourth.

e.g.

I

e.g.

Change

750 g into

kilograms, I

can work out approximately how many km are equivalent to 20 miles

I

know

and can

use the formula for the area of a rectangle

I

know the difference between area and perimeter

e.g.

I

can find the length of a rectangle given its perimeter and width

I

can ask questions, plan how to answer them and collect the data I need

I

can work out probabilities based on equally likely outcomes and experimental evidence

e.g.

I

can compare the likelihood of numbers on two spinners

I

understand and can use the probability scale from 0 to 1

I

understand and can use the mean of discrete data

I

can c

ompare two simple distributions using the range and one of the mode, median or mean

I

understand that different outcomes may result from repeating an experiment

I

can i

nterpret diagrams and graphs, including pie charts, and draw conclusions

I

can create and interpret line graphs for suitable data
