Mathematics Mastery

Summary

This unit begins with an introduction to vectors, their key properties and uses.  With an emphasis on developing mastery, students learn how to carry out arithmetic processes with vectors and understand the geometric interpretations of these.  The length of vectors is found using knowledge of Pythagoras’ theorem.  Circle facts are built on, developing skills for calculations involving arcs and sectors of circles before dealing with composite circle shapes and solving problems in relation to these.  Perimeters and areas of 2D shapes are explored, recalling the key formula and using it to solve contextualised problems.  The unit next moves on to look at 3D shapes; specifically finding the surface area and volume of these shapes.  Formulae are developed and presented and students’ skills in applying these formulae to find missing values are supported.  Contextualised problems including the use of reasoning skills are developed, including the consideration of appropriate degrees of accuracy and the use of estimation to check the reasonableness of answers.
