Free Maths KS3 Teaching Resources for Secondary Teachers

Maths at KS3

At Key Stage 3, the importance of Maths in the workplace, business, finance and for personal decision-making is highlighted. It is a subject that has practical applications and can also be studied for its own sake.

During KS2, pupils learn rules of arithmetic. In KS3 they continue to use and build on mental and written methods in everyday situations, such as temperature and financial transactions. They encounter algebra, equations, formulae and expressions. Properties of 2D and 3D shapes are studied. Pythagoras’ theorem, transformations, use of scale, surface areas and volume are included in the study of geometry and measures.

Pupils at Key Stage 3 learn about statistics and the cycle for handling data. They present information and analyse this, which includes the use of ICT to support them. They learn about probabilities and apply these ideas.

The Curriculum for Maths

The curriculum provides opportunities for pupils to use the same mathematics in more demanding contexts or those that are unfamiliar. Pupils may also encounter more challenging mathematics presented in similar contexts.

The key stage 3 Maths curriculum includes number and algebra, geometry and measures and statistics, and as pupils become more adept at these topics through years 7, 8 and 9 they should be given more challenging tasks and problems to solve. The free materials on this page can also be used as part of a revision course for KS3 SATs, so why not ask your students to take a look and choose some resources for themselves to do at home or in study periods? Revision at this key stage needs to kept fun and engaging, with some cool Maths games and real life scenarios to get their attention, so take a good look at the materials on this page to find out how they can help keep your key stage 3 pupils on course.
