Skills Taught:
There is a renewed emphasis on students acquiring skills in ; Problem solving , Functionality and Mathematical Thinking.
There will be a much greater focus in teaching skills on applying and using mathematics to solve questions set in the real world. Students might be asked to answer questions on , for instance, decorating a room or designing a garden or perhaps paying bills or sorting out rotas for shop staff.
Students will also develop their ability to communicate the mathematics they have applied in order to solve a question a requirement called the Quality of Written Communication.
The skills taught, throughout KS3 and KS4, will enable students to:
 develop fluent knowledge and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
 acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
 reason mathematically ,make deductions and inferences and draw conclusions
 comprehend ,interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context
