Welcome to Maths
Maths is important in everyday life, allowing us to make sense of the world around us. It equips us with many of the skills required for life, learning and work. In S3, pupils will continue to develop their skills such as logical reasoning, analysis, problem solving and the ability to think in abstract ways.

Depending on their ability, pupils will continue to develop their maths in the following areas:

Algebra: Patterns and relationships; expressions and equations
Geometry: Properties of 2D shapes and 3D objects, angles, symmetry and transformation, Pythagoras and trigonometry.
Statistics: Data and analysis
Mathematics: its impact on society
Numeracy: Basic number processes, money, estimation and rounding, time, measure, ideas of chance and uncertainty

The maths will be taught in units of work. Where possible, the topics will be linked to other subject areas so that pupils will be able to see the relevance of what is being taught. Links will also be made where maths may be used in later life.

Homework will vary depending on the level of the course and is likely to be of the following types: independent homework assignments, practising work carried out in class, researching a topic, preparing a presentation (sometimes part of a group). All pupils will be expected to back up their class work with a considerable amount of private study.

Assessment will be informal and formal and will take place throughout the year. Informal assessment will be through class activities and homework, formal assessment through tests.
