Dear Parent
As outlined on the front cover, mathematics homework in year
7 is organised in a three section format. The Section B tasks
are split into different levels and your child should attempt
work in line with their working level and target. Your child
should attempt Section A and the level ____ task of Section
B, each week unless otherwise directed by their teacher – this
may mean them completing questions at one, two or even three
levels. The challenge tasks are short problem solving activities
that any pupil can attempt. These questions are taken from
‘UKMT Mathematics Challenge’ papers – some pupils will take
part in the annual national UKMT Challenge during year 7.
Your child’s working level at the start of year 7 and their end
of year 7 target level is shown at the bottom of this page.
Any task that has a bold heading or is marked with an asterisk
(*) indicates that the task is linked to a key area of maths,
which needs to be understood in order to contribute towards
being confident working at that level. These areas will be
assessed in more detail in lessons and formal assessments.
We hope that your child enjoys attempting their maths
homework and achieves success in the process.
