**Year 7 - Key Objectives**

**Number**

· Know and use the order of operations, including
brackets.

· Consolidate and extend mental methods of calculation to include decimals,
fractions and percentages

· Check a result by considering whether it is of the right order of magnitude

· Multiply and divide three-digit by two-digit whole numbers;

· Multiplying and dividing decimals with one or two places by single-digit
whole numbers.

· simplify fractions by cancelling all common factors and identify equivalent
fractions;

· recognise the equivalence of percentages, fractions and decimals

**Algebra**

· Use letter symbols to represent unknown numbers
or variables;

· Understand that algebraic operations follow the same conventions and order as
arithmetic operations

· Plot the graphs of simple linear functions

**Shape and Space**

· convert one metric unit to another (e.g. grams
to kilograms);

· read and interpret scales on a range of measuring instruments.

· Identify parallel and perpendicular lines; know the sum of angles at a point,
on a straight line and in a triangle,

**Handling Data**

· Understand and use the probability scale from 0
to 1; find and justify probabilities based on equally likely outcomes in simple
contexts;

· Compare two simple distributions using the range and one of the mode, median
or mean

**Using and Applying**

· Break a complex calculation into simpler steps,
choosing and using appropriate and efficient operations, methods

· Explain and justify methods and conclusions
