Are you prepared for the 11+ maths exam? For the 11+ you will need to know all maths topics in key stage two (years 5 and 6 at school), and you will probably also have to learn some trickier key stage three topics too.
We all know how hard maths can be. If you are struggling in any of these areas, it’s no problem! You can take our special 11+ revision course, where we provide you with an 11+ tutor to guide you through the exam and all its topics.
Here is a breakdown of the maths topics you will need to know for this exam, to help you identify areas you need help with...
Ordering, positive and negative numbers, counting backwards and forwards in steps of 10, rounding up, interpreting roman numerals, calculate intervals across zero.
Addition and subtraction:
Add and subtract whole numbers up to four digits, written and mental methods, checking answers and accessing accuracy.
Multiplication and division:
Multiples, factors, prime numbers, multiply and divide numbers up to four digits, written methods and mental methods, long and short division, multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1000 inclusive of decimals, multiply/divide four digit numbers by two digit numbers, use of remainders and rounding.
Fractions, decimals and percentages:
Order fractions and decimals, compare size and equivalence of fractions, convert fractions, add and subtract fractions, multiply fractions by whole numbers, convert decimals into fractions, round decimals to nearest whole numbers, percentage symbol and relation to 100, represent percentages as fractions and decimals, simplify fractions with common factors, solve and compare fractions larger than 1, divide fractions by whole numbers.
Convert units of length, weight and time, metric and imperial equivalences, calculate perimeters of shape, calculate areas of rectangles with correct units, introduction to volumes and units, perimeter and area of different sized shapes, area of parallelograms, area of triangles, calculate and compare cube volumes.
Properties of shapes:
3D and 2D shape, angles (acute, obtuse and reflex) and degree measurement, use angle properties to calculate missing angles, regular and irregular polygons, draw 2D shapes to given specification, build 3D shapes with nets, introduction to circles and labelling circles (radius, diameter, circumference).
Position and direction:
Reflection and transition of shapes, introduction to axes, co-ordinates on a grid, shapes and translations on a co-ordinate plane.
Interpret and complete tables that contain data, interpret information from line graphs to solve difference and comparison based problems, interpret and draw pie charts and line graphs, introduction to mean average.
Ratio and proportion
Solve problems with percentages, similar shapes, solve size and quantity problems with multiplication and division.
Introduction to simple formulae, linear number sequences, use algebra for missing number problems.
