Year 11 Overview

 
AQA 9-1 GCSE Mathematics (Exam Code 8300)
 
In Year 11, students will finish completing any remaining chapters from the Collins AQA Textbook, and developing their exam technique under the careful guidance of their teachers. Students are advised to use their exercise books from Year 9-11, Specimen Paper resources, the online resources outlined below, and the Collins AQA “All-In-One Practice & Revision Guide” issued to students last year. 
 
This new GCSE is a more rigorous qualification which has an increased emphasis on mathematical reasoning and problem solving. It is essential that students complete independent work at home and also attend revision support after school and during the holidays, in addition to their normal timetabled lessons. The chapters that will be covered or revisited are as follows:
 
Chapter 1: Basic Number
Chapter 2: Fractions, Ratio and Proportion
Chapter 3: Statistical Diagrams and Averages
Chapter 4: Number and Sequences
Chapter 5: Further Ratio and Proportion
Chapter 6: Angles
Chapter 7: Transformation, Construction and Loci
Chapter 8: Algebraic Manipulation
Chapter 9: Length, Area and Volume
Chapter 10: Linear Graphs
Chapter 11: Geometry- Right Angled Triangles
Chapter 12: Similarity
Chapter 13: Exploring and Applying Probability
Chapter 14: Powers and Standard Form
Chapter 15: Equations and Inequalities
Chapter 16: Counting, Accuracy, Powers and Surds
Chapter 17: Quadratic Equations
Chapter 18: Sampling and More Complex Data Diagrams
Chapter 19: Combined Events and Tree Diagrams
Chapter 20: Properties of Circles
Chapter 21: Variation
Chapter 22: Triangles (3D Trigonometry, Sine & Cosine Rules)
Chapter 23: Complex Graphs 
Chapter 24: Algebraic Fractions and Functions
Chapter 25: Vector Geometry
 
It is anticipated that the vast majority of students will sit the Higher Tier (Grades 4-9) in Summer 2017. The exam consists of 3 papers, each lasting 90 minutes, and each containing 80 marks. The 1st paper is non-calculator while the 2nd and 3rd papers are calculator-based.
