Student with Maths Whiteboards in the background

The Oxford Home Schooling Key Stage 3 Maths course has been designed to gently introduce your child to the various aspects of the Key Stage 3 Maths curriculum.

The course has been designed to guide your child through the subject in logical, easy to follow steps building on their understanding as their confidence grows.

The course is written in an informal and lively style with plenty of diagrams and illustrations to keep your child engaged with the material. The focus throughout is on Maths in the real world, as a tool to help us solve practical problems and to underpin the rest of our studies.

The course contains Self-Assessment Tests and Tutor-marked assignments at various points in the course to help you and your child gauge their progress.

The course is divided into three one year sections, corresponding to the school years, 7, 8 and 9. Some students may take three years to complete the course, others may take two years or proceed even more quickly. By the end of the course, students should be in a good position to tackle a GCSE or IGCSE programme (Key Stage 4) in earnest.
