Overview

GCSE Mathematics can help you to progress onto many further and higher education courses.

Our GCSE maths course was written by qualified subject specialists who have years of experience in Further Education. You’ll start with a Diagnostic Assessment, which shows you where you already have good skills and which areas you need to focus on.  Our courses have been created to cater to all ways of learning. Whether you are a visual, auditory or kinaesthetic learner, you will be able to find content that helps you to learn in the way that you find most comfortable.

Our supported package is ideal for you if you would like support from our qualified tutors. Support includes two, one-hour individual tutorials delivered over the internet, and a marked mock exam with feedback on areas you need to revise. In addition, you’ll receive access to all of the online tutorials and practice activities that you need, and our system will give you guidance every step of the way. At the end of each lesson is a short quiz which will help you to confirm learning before you move onto the next lesson.

If you find that you need more support, then take a look at the Add-Ons available.

Modules

GCSE mathematics covers the Pearson GCSE (9-1) Mathematics Foundation Tier specification and includes sections on:

  • Number – This unit covers using numbers to solve a variety of different problems. You’ll use fractions, decimals and percentages, and work with ratios and proportion.
  • Algebra – In this unit, you’ll learn how to use algebra and formulae in different ways, including problem-solving and working with graphs. Once you’re comfortable with these skills, you’ll learn how to work with quadratic equations. 
  • Geometry – Here, you’ll look at 2D and 3D shapes, including circles, triangles and trapeziums. The unit includes using vectors to describe directions and movement, and using rules and formulae to find angles in shapes.
  • Measures – This unit looks at different ways of measuring, including the use of scales to draw plans or to read maps. You’ll look at how to work with speed and density in a variety of contexts and learn how these apply to real life situations.
  • Statistics – In this unit, you’ll learn how to interpret, analyse and compare different sets of data, and how to present your own data to share with others. You’ll look at how trends can be predicted and how to ensure that the interpretation of data is trustworthy.
  • Probability – This unit looks at using probability to describe the chance of events happening. You’ll learn how to use the language of probability to explain likelihood, and how to use diagrams, tables and techniques to explore the idea of chance in different situations.
