GCSE Modular Mathematics Unit 2 Topic List (Higher)
Integers, decimals and fractions
Use BIDMAS and the order of operations
Understand and use positive and negative integers both as positions and translations
on a number line. Order integers.
Check and estimate answers to problems, by approximations or inverse operations
Understand equivalent fractions
Factors and multiples
Find factors and multiples of numbers
Find squares and cubes of numbers, and find square roots and cube roots of numbers
Find highest common factor (HCF), lowest common multiple (LCM) and prime factor
decomposition
Standard form and laws of indices
Use index notation and index laws for multiplication and division of integer powers
Use inverse operations involving
Recall the fact that n0 = 1 and n­1 = for positive integers n, for negative integers, =
n and = for any positive number n
Convert between ordinary and standard form representations
Percentages
Find a percentage or fraction of a quantity
Use multiplier to increase or decrease a given amount
Convert between fractions, decimals and percentages
Ratio and scale
Use ratio notation, including reduction to its simplest form and its various links to
fraction notation
Divide a quantity in a given ratio
Solve word problems about ratio, including using informal strategies and the unitary
method of solution
Algebraic manipulation and formulae
Understand the difference between the meaning of `equation', `formula', `identity'
and `expression'
Use index laws to simplify expressions with integer, negative and fractional powers,
and powers of a power
Generate a formula
