A Guide To Using This Scheme Of Work:


Objectives:


The objectives for this scheme of work are taken directly from the DFeS Framework for KS3 Mathematics. The units have been changed a little from those supplied in the medium term plans of the Framework. The order has been changed a little and a few alterations made to fit in better with our school year and the needs of our pupils. I have kept the original numbering system which is why you might be asked to do Number 3 before you have done Number 2.

Objectives in bold are the key learning points from each section.

  • Year 7:
    • Set 1's should make sure that they can cover all Core Objectives and move onto the Extension Objectives where possible.
    • Set 2's should make sure that they can cover all Support Objectives and move onto the Core Objectives where possible.
  • Year 8:
    • Set 1's should recap Core Objectives and aim to cover all Extension Objectives.
    • Set 2's should focus on covering all Core Objectives.
    • Set 3's should make sure that they can cover all Support Objectives and move onto the Core Objectives where possible.
  • Year 9:
    • Set 1's should recap Core Objectives and aim to cover all Extension Objectives.
    • Set 2's should focus on covering all Core Objectives.
    • Set 3's should recap Support Objectives and and aim to cover all Core Objectives.
    • Set 4's should make sure that they can cover all Support Objectives and move onto the Core Objectives where possible.

Framework:


The relevant pages of the Framework for KS3 Mathematics are linked from each topic. You should all have a paper copy of this file but hopefully it will be easier to reference with the direct electronic links.
The Framework is an excellent resource for lesson ideas and clarification of teaching objectives, please refer to it each time you are planning a topic!

Resources:

At the bottom of each page are links to resources relevant to that topic. Clicking on the link will take you to a del.icio.us page of links tagged with the subject in question. These in turn will either take you to a web page or to a file hosted on DivShare. These files are a selection of resources that I have created or collected over my years in teaching along with resources donated by my department. I have also begun linking in many of the freely available resources distributed by the DfES Standards Department. You have two options at this point, download and open the file, or if you are working at St Peter's look in the relevant folder in the "Teaching Resources" folder on the Maths Shared Area Network Drive.

For more information on the methods and tools I have used to store and catalogue these resources, and for information on how to add your own to this library please read the DIY Resources Page.
