Free Maths KS4 Teaching Resources for Secondary Teachers
The Programme of Study for KS4 Maths
At Key Stage 4, pupils are working towards a GCSE in the subject. The study of Maths at KS4 involves applying knowledge, skills and understanding to real-world situations and problems.
Learning Maths at Key Stage 4 develops pupil confidence in using a range of methods when working with number, geometry, measures and statistics. Pupils encounter the same mathematics in unfamiliar contexts or more difficult contexts. They also encounter more demanding mathematics in similar contexts. This may involve them working independently or collaboratively with others.
Inverse and direct proportion, expressions and equations are some aspects that are covered in the Number and Algebra strand of the National Curriculum programme of study at Key Stage 4. In Geometry and Measures, pupils learn about mensuration of 2D and 3D shapes. Within Statistics, pupils learn about box plots, histograms and lines of best fit. They are taught to interpret these.
The material in this section can provide resources and ideas that can be incorporated into lessons to support pupils in developing the skills, knowledge and understanding in different strands of the National Curriculum programme of study.
The GCSE Maths Challenge
Preparing students for GCSE or iGCSE Maths exams involves careful planning and the use of some great interactive resources to really keep the students motivated. Use the free resources on this page as a starting point for some new teaching ideas, or simply download them and use them in the classroom today. Many of the resources can be used by students as revision practice for their exams or retakes. Of course it is important for students to revise at KS4, but they should also be enjoying Maths for Maths sake – whether through realising how important it is in our daily life, or simply because they enjoy the problem solving challenges inherent in the subject.
Diversity of Resources
One thing that can be frustrating for you and your students on a GCSE course is a lack of diverse Maths resources. You will soon get tired of using the same old textbooks, and so will your class. The resources on this page have been selected because they are well thought out, created with the programme of study for years 10 and 11 in mind, and are from an interesting range of organisations, charities and businesses. The national curriculum obviously outlines what is taught in the classroom, but it is up to you how the topics are actually taught in terms of the resources used. Fortunately there are plenty of sources of great materials available for free right here. The online games, puzzles and printable worksheets that you can use from this page will help keep your Maths lessons interesting for everyone – including yourself!
