Mathematics Foundation Tier Year 10 & 11


Year 10 Mathematics Foundation Tier Course Modules


  • AQA 8300: Year 10 Autumn Term

    We spend this term further developing the students’ skills.  Topics covered include Coordinates and Linear Graphs, Real Life Graphs, 2D Representation of 3D Shapes, Measures, Transformation Geometry, Pythagoras’ Theorem, Congruence and Similarity, Vectors and Inequalities. The emphasis is on learning new content and skills as well as on the application of these skills in problem solving situations.

    All Year 10 students are set homework which comprises of the following elements:

    An on-line quiz from Dr Frost Maths which is on the work covered during the last week.  In addition, there is a Complete Maths quiz which is on the work covered during the prior four weeks of work.

    These are both designed to help students build up a knowledge bank so that essential information is not forgotten.

    There is an end of term test which will assess the understanding of the work covered this term.

  • AQA 8300: Year 10 Spring Term

    This term is spent further developing the students’ statistical and numerical skills.  Topics include Collecting and Representing Data, Statistical Methods, Scatter Graphs, Probability, Ratio and Proportion, Direct and Inverse Proportion and Growth and Decay. The emphasis is on learning new content and skills as well as on the application of these skills in problem solving situations.

    All Year 10 students are set homework which comprises of the following elements:

    An on-line quiz from Dr Frost Maths which is on the work covered during the last week.  In addition, there is a Complete Maths quiz which is on the work covered during the prior four weeks of work.

    These are both designed to help students build up a knowledge bank so that essential information is not forgotten.

    There is an end of term test which will assess the understanding of the work covered this term.

  • AQA 8300: Year 10 Summer Term

    In this term we complete the GCSE course, tackling the harder Grade 4 and 5 topics of Trigonometry, the harder algebraic topics of Quadratics, Rearranging Formulae, Identities, Sketching Graphs, Quadratic Graphs, Solving Quadratic Equations and Simultaneous Equations.

    All Year 10 students are set homework which comprises of the following elements:

    An on-line quiz from Dr Frost Maths which is on the work covered during the last week.  In addition, there is a Complete Maths quiz which is on the work covered during the prior four weeks of work.

    These are both designed to help students build up a knowledge bank so that essential information is not forgotten.

    From June onwards, homework comprises of sets of questions from CGP’s MathsBuster.  These cover the entirety of the GCSE specification and are the start of the revision process for both the Trial examinations and the GCSE examination itself.

    During this module, Year 10 will have their end of year examination which will be based on all the GCSE work covered so far, this includes work covered in both Years 9 and 10 and so there will not be an individual test on this term.

Year 11 Mathematics Foundation Tier Course Modules


  • AQA 8300: Year 11 Autumn Term

    We spend this term revising the following topics: – Types of Number, Using Number, Probability, Ratio, Measures, Rounding and Estimation, Perimeter, Area and Volume, Proportion and Algebraic Skills. Each lesson consists of a brief teaching session and then concentrated practice on past paper questions to develop the necessary understanding of how examination questions pull various aspects together and how not to be put off from starting the longer questions.

    All Year 11 students are set homework which comprises of sets of questions from CGP’s MathsBuster.  This continues from the work set from June of Year 10.  These cover the entirety of the GCSE specification and are the start of the revision process for both the Trial examinations and the GCSE examination itself.

    This homework is designed to help students build up a knowledge bank so that essential information is not forgotten.

    Trial examinations take place during this term, so there is no individual test on this material.

  • AQA 8300: Year 11 Spring Term

    This term we complete the revision of the Grade 3 and 4 material covering more Algebraic Skills, Percentages, Angles, Representing Data, Graphs – both linear and quadratic, Bearings, Averages and Transformation Geometry.  Set 3 students will also cover the additional Grade 5 topics of Standard Form, Inequalities, Vectors, Pythagoras’ Theorem, Trigonometry and Simultaneous Equations.

    Homework will now consist of a weekly past paper, issued on a Monday and due in on the following Monday. The expectation is that students will complete this paper to the best of their ability, using all resources available to them, rather than spending just 90 minutes on the homework.

    This is preparation for the Re-Trial examination as well as the GCSE in the summer.
