1 OCR GCSE Mathematics (J560) now accredited ocr.org.uk/gcsemaths Introducing the new Mathematics GCSE for first teaching from 2015 In February 2013, the Secretary of State for Education Michael Gove wrote to Ofqual asking them to implement changes leading to new GCSEs. We now know that, for first teaching in September 2015, we ll have reformed GCSEs in Maths and English followed by more subjects for first teaching a year later. We ve been busy developing specifications to engage and enthuse you and your students, and working hard to create high-quality resources. Changes to GCSE assessment across subjects Linear GCSEs, with assessment to be taken at the end of the course in June. Re-sit opportunities in November for Maths and English Language only. A new grading scale that uses the number 1-9 to identify levels of performance (with 9 being the top level). Tiering used for subjects only where untiered papers will not allow student at the lower end of the ability range to demonstrate their knowledge and skills, or will not stretch the most able. o Maths will be tiered with an overlapping tiers model. o Foundation tier covers grades 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 (U). o Higher tier covers grades 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, (3), (U). o Overlap at grades 5 and 4. o Higher tier also to include a grade 3, for candidates a small number of marks below grade 4.

4 o The weightings of each content area are set by Ofqual at each tier: Foundation tier Higher tier Number 25% 15% Algebra 20% 30% Ratio, proportion and rates of change 25% 20% Geometry and measures 15% 20% Probability Statistics 15% 15% o The subject content document introduces many content areas not previously included at GCSE and an increase in content to be covered at Foundation tier. Subject content introduced in the new GCSE includes: know the exact values of sinθ and cosθ for θ = 0, 30, 45, 60 and 90 ; know the exact value of tanθ for θ = 0, 30, 45 and 60 (Foundation and Higher tier) use inequality notation to specify simple error intervals due to truncation or rounding (Foundation and Higher tier) Venn diagrams (Foundation and Higher tier) work with percentages greater than 100% (Foundation and Higher tier) recognise and use the equation of a circle with centre at the origin; find the equation of a tangent to a circle at a given point (Higher tier only) find approximate solutions to equations numerically using iteration (Higher tier only) interpret the gradient at a point on a curve as the instantaneous rate of change; apply the concepts of average and instantaneous rate of change (gradients of chords and tangents) in numerical, algebraic and graphical contexts (Higher tier only) Previously Higher tier content now included at Foundation tier includes: trigonometric ratios calculate with and interpret standard form (A x 10 n ), where 1 A < 10 and n is an integer apply addition and subtraction of vectors, multiplication of vectors by a scalar, and diagrammatic and column representations of vectors factorising quadratic expressions of the form x 2 + bx + c, including the difference of two squares using y = mx + c to work with straight lines on graphs o A document mapping the current J567 specification to the new GCSE maths subject content is available from the Teaching and Learning Resources section of

5 33% - 50% of the assessment must be a non-calculator paper. A greatly increased expectation for candidates to memorise key mathematical formulae by heart, with few formula allowed to be provided to candidates in the exam. Formulae required at the Foundation tier that are not to be provided on a formula sheet include: Formulae required at the Higher tier that are not to be provided on a formula sheet include: Pythagoras theorem a = b + c trigonometric ratios o a o sin θ =, cos θ =, tan θ = h h a area of a trapezium 1 ( + ) 2 a b h volume of a prism (area of cross section) length the quadratic formula 2 - b ± b - 4ac x = 2a the sine rule a b c = = sina sinb sinc the cosine rule a = b + c -2bccosA area of a triangle 1 sin 2 ab C o Those that can be provided are four geometry formulae (Curved surface area of a cone, Surface area of a sphere, Volume of a sphere, Volume of a cone) and three kinematics formulae (v = u + at, s = ut + ½at 2, v 2 = u 2 + 2as). A revised set of Assessment Objectives, with an emphasis on decreasing rote learning and more problem solving, that will often require multi-step solutions. Questions in assessments will be less clearly structured and more open ended, frequently set within real world contexts. o GCSE maths will no longer have marks allocated to Quality of Written Communication (QWC) in selected questions, but communicate information accurately is a part of AO2. Previous 2010 GCSE Assessment Objectives: Assessment Objectives Weighting (%) AO1 AO2 AO3 Recall and use their knowledge of the prescribed content Select and apply mathematical methods in a range of contexts Interpret and analyse problems and generate strategies to solve them

6 From 2015 Assessment Objectives: Assessment Objectives Higher Weighting Foundation AO1 Use and apply standard techniques Students should be able to: accurately recall facts, terminology and definitions use and interpret notation correctly accurately carry out routine procedures or set tasks requiring multi-step solutions 40% 50% AO2 Reason, interpret and communicate mathematically Students should be able to: make deductions, inferences and draw conclusions from mathematical information construct chains of reasoning to achieve a given result interpret and communicate information accurately present arguments and proofs assess the validity of an argument and critically evaluate a given way of presenting information 30% 25% Where problems require candidates to use and apply standard techniques or to independently solve problems a proportion of those marks should be attributed to the corresponding Assessment Objective AO3 Solve problems within mathematics and in other contexts Students should be able to: translate problems in mathematical or non-mathematical contexts into a process or a series of mathematical processes make and use connections between different parts of mathematics interpret results in the context of the given problem evaluate methods used and results obtained evaluate solutions to identify how they may have been affected by assumptions made 30% 25% Where problems require candidates to use and apply standard techniques or to reason, interpret and communicate mathematically a proportion of those marks should be attributed to the corresponding Assessment Objective.

7 Question papers The new OCR J560 GCSE in mathematics A simple assessment model. o 3 papers at each tier, all equal length and equally weighted towards the qualification. o Subject content and AO weightings are equal across papers at each tier. o Two papers at each tier where candidates are allowed access to a calculator. o One non-calculator paper at each tier. o 100 marks per paper, giving us a large scope for awarding more method marks within questions, so candidates can be rewarded for each correct step on the way towards an answer, even if their final answer is incorrect. Professional language modifiers review all OCR GCSE maths papers and attend setting meetings to ensure that wording used is as clear and simple as possible for students. Contexts used are kept succinct, without excess wording. All OCR GCSE maths papers begin with the simpler questions targeting the lower grades at each tier, before moving on and building steadily through the paper to questions targeting the upper grades at each tier, developing candidate s confidence as they go. Mathematical formula that can be provided to candidates in question papers will be provided to them when relevant in each question in OCR GCSE maths papers; they won t be all supplied together on a formula sheet at the front of the question paper booklet for the candidate to then have to pick and choose from. Accredited specimen papers are now available for both Foundation tier and Higher tier, available to download from

8 Specification A syllabus developed by teachers specifically for teachers, laying out the required content clearly in terms of both topic area and difficulty, facilitating candidates progression through the content. Foundation and Higher tier topic content set out next to next to each other on the same page, so the progression of content is clear. A column of required content suitable for initial learning is set out, ensuring that the basics can be established with learners before moving on to more difficult areas. The Accredited J560 specification is now available to download from
