# KS3 Maths

Mathematics consists of four main topics: Algebra, Shape Space & Measure, Statistics & Data Handling and Geometry. It is taught by assessing prior knowledge, applying and building upon with new content each year. Students develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and problem solving skills so that they are able to solve a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication.
