KS3 Mathematics (11-14)

A new page for Key Stage 3 (UK 11-14) is now available from the top menu.

Many resources available in posts and pages on this blog are relevant for this age range but I thought it would be useful to have a reference page with links to key documents such as the programme of study for KS3 as well as transition documents from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3 and for Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 4.

Included on this page you will find the very valuable Secondary Assessment Materials from NCETM which have been written to support teachers in assessing students at KS3. Examples of questions, tasks and activities are mapped against the key mathematical skills and concepts within the KS3 Programme of Study.

On Dr Frost Maths choose KS2/3/4 from the resources view or select the White Rose Maths course, this covers Year 5 through to Year 11 and also a one year GCSE resit. See also the secondary resources from White Rose Maths.

White Rose Maths – Secondary Resources

Access is freely available for all the schemes of learning and assessments. Looking at the schemes of learning you will see additional resources to download, for example, the very valuable Complete Secondary Small Steps document. The National Curriculum Progression document shows how the White Rose Maths curriculum links to the Key Stage 3 and 4 National Curriculum.

Both Nrich and Transum have curriculum content maps suggesting resources for KS3 content.
