Number (decimals and estimation, place value, rounding and the four operations, negatives, money and calculator, fractions, percentages and decimals, problem solving, ratio and proportion, multiplication and division)
Data Handling (bar charts and questionnaires, averages and frequency tables, interpreting and constructing diagrams, probability)
Shapes and Space (units, triangles, quadrilaterals, cuboids, nets, angles and construction, co-ordinates, symmetry, perimeter and area, scale drawing)

Year 8 Overview

Algebra (sequences, graphs, linear equations, simplifying, factorising, revision equations, T&I, proportion)

Data Handling (questionnaires, graphs, charts and averages, spread, probability)
Shape and Space(construction, ratio, area, volume, surface area, angles and polygons, transformations, time)

Year 9 Overview

Algebra(equations, sequences, graphs, trial and improvement)
Number(ratio, 4 rules with decimals, inverses, factors, BIDMAS, roots, indices, standard form)
Data Handling(displaying data probability, averages, spread)
