COURSE CONTENT

The course will be based around the Level 1 and 2 numeracy core curriculum. This is based on number, measure, shape, space and handling data. You will be able to develop a mathematical understanding that leads to independent learning with transferable skills.

COURSE AIMS/OBJECTIVES

  • Whole numbers, fractions, decimals and percentages. Problem solving using mathematical terminology.
  • Common measures of time, shape, weight and volume.
  • Problem solving using mathematical terminology.
  • Handling data and interpreting charts, graphs and maps.
  • Statistical measures: mean, mode, median and range.
  • Probability.

TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODS

A variety of worksheets, practical activities and computer work. As new topics are covered, materials will be arranged starting at Level 1 and working through to Level 2, if appropriate, to encourage further understanding. The topics will be arranged in such a way as to progress in a logical sense. Toward the end of the course there will be opportunities to complete practice papers.


COURSE LEVEL/ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

You will be invited to attend an information session before enrolling on this course to find the best course for you based on your present level of skills.

Starting at Level 1 some understanding of the following is expected;

  • Number work (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division)
  • Use of simple fractions, decimals and percentages
  • Measurement of length, weight, capacity and temperature
  • Extracting and comparing numerical data from lists, tables, simple diagrams and charts
  • Applying mathematical knowledge to solve simple problems


HOW PROGRESS IS CHECKED DURING COURSE

This will be closely monitored in a variety of different contexts including input in class, homework and assessments throughout the course.


EXTRA STUDY OR PRACTICE REQUIRED AT HOME

Homework will be given out each week and it is essential to practice outside the classroom. There will be some topics that you will be expected to study as homework which will then be checked at the start of the following week. This will identify any gaps and ensure that the knowledge you have learnt is retained and can be applied on your own. There will be support materials posted on the online Moodle site


MATERIALS YOU WILL NEED TO BRING TO THE COURSE

Pens, calculator, A4 Paper and a file.


WHAT CAN I DO NEXT?

Maths GCSE is a requirement for some careers or for entry to further education in some subjects. It is possible to progress to the GCSE course providing a suitable standard is reached.
