# Key Stage 5 - KS5 Maths

Key Stage 5 mathematics is the final step on the mathematics ladder for all the keen mathematicians. As it is the final stage of the syllabus, you can expect to cover all topics and areas that you have been taught before as you go through both levels of Key Stage 5; Core Mathematics and Statistics Mathematics. As well as recapping previous stages to a higher level, you will also be taught some new theories and topics such as surds, simultaneous equns and functions. The second level of Key Stage 5 mathematics revolves around statistics, you will be introduced statistical diagrams which include scatter diagrams, stem and leaf plots along with box and whisker plots and cumulative frequency diagrams. In addition to this you will become familiar with statistical probability which involves predicting outcomes based on both previous outcomes as well as new outcomes. If you complete Key Stage 5 mathematics you can call yourself an official mathematician as you will have completed all modules of the maths syllabus, congratulations!

##### Key Stage 4

### Foundation Maths

Experimental probability, relative frequency, equations involving grouping symbols are some of the areas taught in Foundation Maths.

##### Key Stage 4

### Higher Mathematics

At Higher Mathematics you will be taught surds, surface are formulae and you will also be introduced to circle geometry.

##### Key Stage 5

### Core Mathematics

You will learn algebra-polynomials, polynomial equations, the remainder theorem, absolute value and roots quad equations.

##### Key Stage 5

### Statistics Mathematics

Your studies at this stage will comprise of grouped data, range and dispersion, standard deviation and general statistic probability.
