Mathematics Higher Tier Year 10 & 11 – Set 2


Year 10 Mathematics Higher Tier Course Modules


  • AQA 8300: Year 10 Autumn Term

    We spend this term further developing the students’ geometrical skills.  Topics covered include Transformation Geometry, Plans and Elevations, 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.

    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 this module.

  • AQA 8300: Year 10 Spring Term

    Topics covered this term include Trigonometry in 2D, Quadratic Equations, Identities Rearranging Formulae, Linear and Quadratic Functions and their graphs, Ratio and Proportion and Direct and Inverse Proportion. The emphasis is, as always, 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 this module.

  • AQA 8300: Year 10 Summer Term

    In this module we develop a greater understanding of Statistics; how data is collected and represented and how statistical measures are calculated and used.  We also look at how statistics can be used to misrepresent information.  We also spend time on Scatter Graphs and Probability Theory.

    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 of 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 module.

Year 11 Mathematics Higher Tier Course Modules


  • AQA 8300: Year 11 Autumn Term

    We spend this term completing the GCSE for Set 2 and study topics on Inequalities, Numerical Methods, Equations of Circles, Simultaneous Equations, Sketching Graphs, Vectors, Further Equations and Graphs and Circle Theorems. The emphasis is on learning new content and skills as well as on the application of these skills in problem solving situations.

    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

    We focus on revising the GCSE content this term with emphasis on examination technique, looking at how examination questions can pull together varying aspects of the GCSE course.

    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.  Students will be asked to identify 3 topics per paper with which they have trouble, and these topics will inform the teaching for the following week.

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

    The Re-Trial result will help to determine the final tier of entry.
