Lower School (Key Stage 3)

Lower Primary School Mathematics Online

Description

Cambridge Lower School Maths offers an exceptional framework for maths online secondary school education. Recognising mathematics as a creative and interconnected discipline, our Key Stage 3 Maths curriculum aims to equip students with skills essential for everyday life, as well as for careers in science, technology, engineering, and finance. Our comprehensive online maths lessons for secondary school students are designed to tackle historical and contemporary mathematical problems, fostering an understanding that is both deep and wide-ranging.

Assessment

At our Key Stage 3 maths school online, assessments are continuous and thorough. Conducted during LIVE TAUGHT lessons by expert educators, these assessments encompass the marking of coursework, assignments, and the administration of summative tests. This ensures our online maths classes for secondary school students adhere to the highest standards of academic rigour.

Homework

Homework assignments, integral to our educational approach, are provided at the end of each week. Tailored to enrich our online maths lessons for Key Stage 3 students, the homework usually consists of researching key mathematical concepts, quizzes for recapitulation, and subject-related activities that round off coursework effectively.

Reporting

Parents have 24/7 access to all key academic records, including coursework, grades, and teacher feedback. This transparency ensures parents can closely monitor their child’s academic performance in our online maths classes. Additionally, consultations with teachers can be arranged at mutually convenient times to discuss academic progress, milestones, or any concerns.

By enrolling your child in Cambridge Lower School Maths, you are providing them with an enriched, multi-faceted educational experience in the realm of secondary school maths online.

Pupils receive a high-quality mathematics education which provides them with a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and nonroutine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
  1. Number
  2. Algebra
  3. Ratio, proportion and rates of change
  4. Geometry and measures
  5. Probability
  6. Statistics

A scientific calculator is mandatory. The lessons will be delivered via the virtual classroom, which consists of a virtual whiteboard that both students and the teacher can write upon. In mathematics, drawing diagrams and handwriting calculations is key to learning, so all students will be required to purchase a graphics tablet and stylus pen in order to be able to answer problems on the whiteboard. There are many such tablets available on Amazon, we recommend the Trust Flex Graphic Tablet (~£25), or if you have an iPad and Macintosh, we recommend purchasing a Wacom Bamboo Stylus (~£6) and downloading the Astropad application (~£15) from the app store. Students will be expected to take notes so a lined paper will also be necessary, alongside a ruler, protractor and drawing compass. A printer and scanner will also be useful.

Nothing mandatory as we expect the lessons to be self-contained, but some recommended textbooks are the CGP KS3 Maths Workbook & Study Guides and Collins KS3 Workbooks.
