# Key Stage 3 Maths

## Topics/Skills Taught

In their Maths lessons, pupils will learn about new and challenging mathematical concepts and develop their skills in the key areas of Number, Algebra, Ratio and Proportion, Geometry, Measures, Statistics and Probability.

Teachers will plan activities so that pupils have plenty of time to develop their fluency in these skills and also give them tasks that involve them in logical reasoning and solving problems in different contexts. We also include weekly skills practice, homework tasks and termly assessments throughout all years.
