• ## Mathematics at Jamiatul Ummah School

The aim of the Mathematics Department is to:

• develop mathematical reasoning – apply their skills and draw conclusions from mathematical information
• communicate mathematically – show how they have arrived at their answers by using mathematical arguments
• solve problems and make connections – devise strategies to answer questions based on information given
• evaluate and interpret – answer questions considering the information given

The Mathematics Department is a very successful department here at Jamiatul Ummah School. Our GCSE results are outstanding.

• In 2019, over 66% of our pupils achieved 9-7 (A*-A) grades in Maths.

At Key Stage 3, we follows the Pearson’s Progress in Maths Syllabus which we feel is challenging and engaging. It also effectively prepares our pupils for GCSE Maths. Topics include:

 Y7 Y8 Y9 Y10 Y11 Analysing and displaying data Expressions, functions and formulae Decimals and measures Fractions and percentages Probability Ratio and proportion Lines and angles Sequences and graphs Transformations Number Area and volume Statistics, graphs and charts Expressions and equations Real-life graphs Decimals and ratio Lines and angles Calculating with fractions Straight-line graphs Percentages, decimals and fractions Basic number Fractions, ratio and proportion Statistical diagrams and averages Number and sequences Ratio and proportion Angles Transformations, constructions and loci Algebraic manipulation Length, area and volume Linear graphs Right-angled triangles Similarity Exploring and applying probability Powers and standard form Equations and inequalities Counting, accuracy, powers and surds Quadratic equations Complex and more complex diagrams Combined events Properties and circles Variation Triangles Graphs Algebraic functions and functions Vector geometry

At Key Stage 4, we follow the Edexcel GCSE Mathematics curriculum.
