Pearson GCSE 2 Year Scheme of Work

Maths from 2015/16

2 year GCSE Scheme of Work


This 2-year scheme assumes 4 hours maths teaching per week.
The suggested teaching hours assume that students have already covered some of the material in their 3-year KS3 course, and that some of the lessons can be combined, set as homework or not taught.
Here are some suggestions for fitting the content into the suggested teaching times:

● Lessons where the content has previously been taught at KS3 can be combined, particularly in the earlier units.
● The Prior knowledge check, Check up and/or Unit test could be set as homework rather than taking up teaching time.
● It may not be necessary to cover all strategy problem-solving lessons in full with students who used our KS3 Maths Progress course as they will already be familiar with many of the strategies.
● The functional problem-solving lessons could be omitted, or saved for the revision period. These lessons provide richer activities in real-life contexts but do not contain any new teaching.
