The old KS3 maths used levels. This is what you needed to know for level 3.

Topic | level 3c | level 3b | level 3a |
---|---|---|---|

Number System | I am starting to read, write, count, and order numbers to 1000. |
I can read, write, count, and order numbers to 1000 I can round 2 digit and 3 digit numbers to the nearest 10/100 I can multiply whole numbers by 10 |
I can read, write, count, and order numbers to at least 1000 I know the value of the digits and can partition numbers I can divide whole numbers by 10 I can recognise negative numbers and continue positive /negative number sequences and find missing numbers |

Fractions and decimals | I can use fractions such as 1/2, 1/4, 3/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/10 etc in shapes |
I can use fractions such as 1/2, 1/4, 3/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/10 and 2/5, 4/10 in shapes |
I can use fractions such as 1/2, 1/4, 3/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/10 for sets of objects I can recognise some fractions that are equivalent to 1/2 I am beginning to use decimal notation in context (eg £3.06 = 306p) |

Calculating Operations | I can find a division fact from a multiplication fact (eg 14 × 5 = 70, 70 ÷ 5 = 14 |
I can find the associated number statements for a given multiplication fact (eg 14 × 5 = 70, 70 ÷ 5 =14 , 70 ÷ 14 = 5) I can use a calculator and inverse operations to find missing numbers, including decimals |
I can use inverses in number problems (eg I think of a number, double it and add 5.The answer is 35. What is the number?) I can understand the = sign in balancing equations (eg 7 × 10 = 82 – ? ) |

Topic | level 5c | level 5b | level 5a |
---|---|---|---|

Mental | I know number pairs that total 100 (eg 37 + 63 = 100) |
I know the multiplication tables: 2×, 3×, 4×, 5×, 6×, 10× I know the complements of number additions to 100 (eg 100 – 37 = 63) I understand that to find a quarter of a number I can half it and half it again |
I know the multiplication tables: 7× , 8×, 9× I can add/subtract two, two digit numbers mentally (eg 39 + 19 = 58 , 91 – 35 = 56) I know the doubles of numbers to 50 (eg 32 + 32 =) |

Solving | I can solve more complex one step problems (including money and measures) that involve any of the four operations |
I can use the mental recall of addition and subtraction facts to 20 to solve problems I can solve two step problems that involve addition and subtraction |
I can solve two step problems (including money and measures) that involve any of the four operations and remainders |

Written | I can add and subtract two, two digit numbers using a column method, including carrying down and borrowing I can use written methods that involve bridging 10 and 100 |
I can add and subtract two, three digit numbers using a column method , including carrying down and borrowing I can add and subtract decimals in context (eg money) I can multiply a two digit numbers by 2,3,4,5, 6, 10 |
I can divide a two digit numbers by 2,3,4,5,10 with whole number answers and remainders |

Shape Properties | I can describe the properties of the shapes in Level 2b (eg flat faces, curved edges) I can sort the shapes in Level 2b using more than one criterion (eg pentagon/not pentagon or edges equal/not equal) I can recognise right angles in different orientations |
I understand 'regular' and 'irregular' I can recognise and name 'acute' and 'obtuse' angles I can name 'right angled ' and 'equilateral' triangles I can draw the reflection of a shape in a mirror line I am beginning to recognise the nets of a cone, cube, cuboid, triangular prism, triangular/square based pyramid I can demonstrate that a shape has reflection symmetry by folding it, and when it doesn't |
I can recognise the nets of a cone, cube, cuboid, triangular prism, triangular /square based pyramid I can relate 3D shapes to drawings and photographs of them, including from different view points I can compare and order angles less than 180 degrees |

Position and movement | I can recognise the shapes in Level 2b in different orientations I can draw the reflection of a shape in a vertical/horizontal mirror line which is along the side of the shape I can give directions using left and right |
I can draw the reflection of a shape in a vertical/horizontal mirror line which does not touch the sides of the shape I can give directions using clockwise and anti clockwise |
I can reflect a shape in a diagonal mirror line which runs along the side of the shape I can give directions using 90° /quarter turns |

Measures | I can tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes and calculate time durations that go over the hour I can use m/cm, kg/g, l/ml and I know which measuring tool to use I can draw and measure lines to the nearest 1/2 cm |
I can use km/ m/cm, kg/g, l/ml and I know which units to use I can read scales (eg 2, 10) to the nearest half division I can tell the time to the nearest minute I understand angle as a measure of turn and know 360 degrees is a whole turn I am beginning to understand area as a measure of surface and perimeter as length |
I can use km/ m/cm /mm, kg/g, l/ml and I know which units to use I can find the area of shapes by counting squares I am beginning to find the perimeter of squares and rectangles I can tell the time, know am/pm and I can calculate time intervals |

Data:Process Show | I can gather data to answer a question using a tally chart and frequency (totals) table |
I can use a Venn /Carroll diagram using more than one criterion (eg right angles and equal sides) |
I can construct a bar chart (eg scale of 2) and pictogram (eg one symbol represents 10) I can decide the best way to present my data (bar chart, Venn diagram, pictogram) |

Interpretation | I can interpret a tally chart and frequency (totals) table |
I can extract and interpret information in bar charts, pictograms, Venn/Carroll diagrams |
I understand 'certain' and 'impossible' in probability |
