Year 9 Programme of Study – Mathematics Mastery

All students will be following the Mathematics Mastery scheme of work.

If students are struggling to master topics they have studied with in class, there are two websites which provide worksheets of exam style questions, exemplar or worked solutions (WAGOLLs) and a video guide for explanation.  Further to this, by typing a particular topic into Youtube you can usually find some good ‘how to’ guidance.   all free – no login or registration required.    all free – no login or registration required.
