# Mathematics Higher Tier Year 10 & 11 – Set 2

## Year 10 Mathematics Higher Tier Course Modules

• ##### Year 10 Autumn Term

We start Year 10 by further developing the students’ skills. Topics covered include: – Transformation Geometry, 2D Representation of 3D Shapes, Measures, Congruence and Similarity, Pythagoras’ Theorem, Coordinates and Linear Graphs, and Real-Life Graphs. The emphasis is on learning new content and skills as well as on the application of these skills in problem solving situations. There is a topic test at the end of each topic for which the pass mark is 80%.

All Year 10 Students are set weekly homework which consists of three distinct activities: –

A Dr Frost Maths quiz of 30 questions on the current week’s work (most questions have explanatory worked examples attached so if a student has missed lessons/not fully understood the concept being taught, there is an opportunity to redress this).

A 30-minute Complete Maths quiz based on the last months’ worth of lessons.

30 minutes on Complete Maths TUTOR revising previous content, we start with the Year 9 content.

• ##### Year 10 Spring Term

After we have completed the previous term’s work, we then move onto studying the following topics: – Trigonometry, Quadratics Rearranging Formulae, Identities, Functions, Linear and Quadratic Equations and Graphs, Ratio and Proportion and finally we study Direct and Inverse Proportion. The emphasis is on learning new content and skills as well as on the application of these skills in problem solving situations. There is a topic test at the end of each topic for which the pass mark is 80%.

• ##### Year 11 Spring Term

The focus for this term is revising the GCSE content, with an emphasis on examination technique and looking at how examination questions can pull together various aspects of the course.

All Year 11 Students are set weekly homework which consists of a Churchill paper. The aim is to achieve as many marks as possible, this is an open book exercise, and the expected mark is 60 out of 80, this will take longer than the 90 minutes allowed for a paper. This is preparation for the re-trial examination in March and will help determine the final tier of entry.
