Mathematics and Further MathematicsGCSE Mathematics is a core subject and a grade C is often an essential qualification for progression to the next stage of your education.
The Maths syllabus we follow is AQA’s linear specification.
We cover the six main areas of Maths:
Number – including fractions, percentages, indices
Algebra – including solving equations and using formulae
Geometry – including angles in a variety of shapes
Measures – including perimeter, area and volume
Statistics – including calculating averages and spread and drawing statistical diagrams
Probability – including two way tables and expectation
There are two examination papers that are sat in the summer. The first is non calculator and the second is calculator.
There are topic differences in content for Foundation and Higher tier.
The course is taught so that knowledge and learning is incrementally increased throughout the year to allow understanding to increase slowly.
