# Mathematics

## Students at Heathlands develop the ability to apply the concepts and techniques that they learn in the classroom to problems in the real world…..The study of Mathematics opens up a world of opportunity.

At KS3 each year group is organised into two sets each following the National Curriculum Programme of Study at a level appropriate to their mathematical development and ability in numeracy.

Students in some sets will first need to consolidate their numerical and mathematical capability from key stage 2 before extending their understanding of the number system and place value to include decimals, fractions, powers and roots.

Students in higher ability sets extend their understanding of the number system; make connections between number relationships and their algebraic and graphical representations and develop their mathematical knowledge, through solving problems and evaluating the outcomes, including multi-step problems.

They also develop their skills to recognise, describe, draw, compare and sort different shapes and use related vocabulary. They will use a range of measures to describe and compare different quantities such as length, mass, capacity/volume, time and money.
