Fortunately when you begin to work in a school, the mathematics department will already have made decisions about teaching programmes, resources and assessment practices. But it is interesting to note which aspects of the Programme of Study are to the fore. Level descriptions provide the basis for making judgements about pupils’ performance at the end of Key Stages 1, 2 and 3.

In many respects both the content of A level mathematics and teaching approaches have changed little in the post-war period. A comparison between typical textbooks of the 1950s and many textbooks widely used today will reveal considerable similarity in both content and style, although the contrast between examination papers may be greater.

75. 75 must be 4. While this provides you with the correct answer, it does not give you much insight into why the answer is 4. 75 in a particular way.
