Year 9: Shape, space and measure task
These are plans for two lessons in mathematics at Key Stage 3, across levels 3, 4, 5 and 6. Find out which topics are covered and the relevant Assessing Pupils’ Progress (APP) assessment criteria.
- Wrap Around
For classes consisting only of pupils at levels 3 and 4, you may wish to explore the material in lesson 1 more thoroughly, using interlocking cubes and creating the bands from squared paper, rather than progressing to lesson 2.
APP assessment criteria
These lessons may generate evidence to help inform judgements against the following assessment criteria:
Shape, space and measure
- Level 6: deduce and use formulae for the area of a triangle and parallelogram, and the volume of a cuboid; calculate volumes and surface areas of cuboids.
- Level 6: know and use the formulae for the circumference and area of a circle.
Using and applying mathematics
- Level 6: solve problems and carry through substantial tasks by breaking them into smaller, more manageable tasks, using a range of efficient techniques, methods and resources, including ICT; give solutions to an appropriate degree of accuracy.
- Level 6: present a concise, reasoned argument, using symbols, diagrams, graphs and related explanatory texts.
