Mathematicswillbetaught in mixed ability groups in Years 7, 8 & 9. We will cover all of the main subjects areas; Number, Algebra, Data and Shape, Space and Measure. Emphasis willbe placed on students achieving a deeper understanding of the subject through a mixture of rich tasks and practical applications of topics learnt.
Lessons will have a central topic which students will work on at 3 different levels; Main, Advanced and Extended. These are not fixed and students can move between them from topic to topic. We believe that Mathematics at Jebel Ali should extend beyond examinations and we want our students to be able to apply their skills in real life contexts at university and beyond.
We will be using the revised 2016 UK KS3 curriculum. Homework will supplement and reinforce classroom learning and will be a variety of written and online tasks. Lessons will focus on a combination of Numeracy and Problem Solving. Year 9 students will continue this pathway, but also begin preparation for the Edexcel IGCSE.
