## Year 7-9 Content

KS3 students are expected to learn more independently and at a faster pace. They should become fluent in the fundamentals of maths, learn to reason by following a line of enquiry, and apply their knowledge to solve more sophisticated problems. Students will study the following 6 areas in preparation for the GCSE years:
