Maths Level 2 - Specialised

Overview

Functional Skills maths can help you develop the practical skills you need to use maths in life, study and work. You’ll develop your maths skills and learn how to use them in real-life situations.

By reaching Level 2, you’ll reach the equivalent to a C or higher grade at GCSE, meaning that you can demonstrate your ability to understand and use everyday maths at this level. Some universities will even accept a Functional Skills Level 2 qualification in place of a GCSE. This course will guide you through all of the skills you need to prepare for a Level 2 exam.

Our maths course was written by qualified subject specialists who have years of experience in Further Education. We know that one size doesn’t fit all, so our online tools can develop a unique programme made just for you. This means that you’ll know your strengths and where you need to focus right from the start. Our courses have also 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.

Choosing the specialised route gives you access to qualified teachers who will guide you through your learning, provide you with four one-to-one tutorials focussed on your unique needs, give you additional learning in areas you find difficult, and be available during office hours on email. You will be given the option of an individual learning plan, which can help you to focus on setting yourself small targets and give you the chance to reflect on your learning. In addition, if you chose to take an exam you will be provided with up to three marked mock exams with feedback.

Modules

Functional Skills maths includes sections on:

  • Using numbers – This section covers everything from whole numbers to decimals, fractions and percentages. You’ll look at how to solve real problems using these skills, including making decisions about purchases, using ratios in recipes and in work or working out whether your bills are correct. All of the number skills you look at will be tested by quizzes at the end of each section, ensuring that you are ready to sit your final exam.
  • Understanding measure, shape and space – This section contains a wide range of topics from area and distance to time, speed and temperature. You’ll look at how to solve problems involving time to plan your day-to-day or work life, and how to use your understanding of shape and area to do anything from read a map to plan a house renovation. Our quizzes will check that you’re able to use these skills in different situations, making sure that you’re ready for your final exam.
  • Handling data – This section looks at working with information. You’ll look at how to summarise and present information that you’ve found, and how to understand information that other people are sharing with you. You’ll also look at probability and how likely certain things are to happen. You’ll learn how to spot patterns and see how even data and statistics can be biased. Our quizzes on topics such as averages, probability and interpreting charts and graphs will help you to make sure you’re ready for your final exam.
