3. 3. Curriculum- scope & sequence 5 th 6 th 7 th 8 th 9 th use real-life problems to create a number pattern, following a rule Use of letters to express generalized terms - simplifying expressions by collecting like terms - multiplying terms together eg 6a  3b multiplying fractional algebraic terms - Expanding brackets Eg 4x(3x + 2y) - Adding and subtracting expressions with brackets Eg 4x(3x + 2y) + 2x( 2x – 3y) - substituting positive numbers into the formula - Expanding brackets involving fractions - substituting negative numbers and fractions into the formula - changing the subject by rearranging the formula use letters to express generalized numbers and express basic arithmetic processes algebraically, substitute numbers for words and letters in formulae; transform simple formulae; construct simple expressions and set up simple equations   - construct and transform more complicated formulae and equations
