Programme Of Study For Key Stage 4 Mathematics

These are the statements, each one preceeded with the words "Pupils should be taught to:"

- apply systematic listing strategies, {including use of the product rule for counting}
- {estimate powers and roots of any given positive number}
- calculate with roots, and with integer {and fractional} indices
- calculate exactly with fractions, {surds} and multiples of π ; {simplify surd ex
pressions involving squares [for example √12 = √(4 × 3) = √4 × √3 = 2√3] and rationalise denominators} - calculate with numbers in standard form A × 10
^{n}, where 1≤A<10 and n is an integer - {change recurring decimals into their corresponding fractions and vice versa}
- identify and work with fractions in ratio problems
- apply and interpret limits of accuracy when rounding or truncating, {including upper and lower bounds}

Statements in curly brackets {} are additional mathematical content to be taught to more highly attaining pupils.
