The 11+ Maths syllabus appears to follow that of the National Curriculum, so it is necessary to ensure that your child is comfortable with all of the following concepts: addition, multiplication, subtraction and division; fractions; decimals; time; area and perimeter; prime numbers and prime factors; averages; distance, speed and time; graphs and charts; calculating angles; reflection and rotation; percentages; simple ratio and probability; sequences and number patterns; nets of shapes and working out the volume of cubes and cuboids.
The 11+ Maths test covers questions based on topics and concepts covered in the Key Stage 2 curriculum. Few questions are asked from topics not covered in the KS2 curriculum, such as algebra and logical questions.
