# Key Stage 3 Maths

When you move onto secondary school or high school you will start studying Key Stage 3 mathematics in Year 7 Maths until Year 9 Maths. You will start by studying fractions at a much deeper level; creating improper fractions, multiplying and dividing to obtain equivalent fractions, multiplying fractions by whole numbers and finding equivalent fractions. One of the biggest differences in terms of difficulty between Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 mathematics is the introduction of algebraic expressions. You will be taught how to simplify and expand algebraic expressions whilst also learning how to solve algebraic equations. The workload at Key Stage 3 is also more heavily loaded than at previous stages, you will also be introduced to area, volume, mass and surface area and you will be expected to be able to solve problems which include all of these topics and formulae. Once you have completed Key Stage 3 mathematics you will be fully prepared to move onto Key Stage 4 mathematics which will take you towards your key GCSE maths examinations.
