Course Description

Mathematics GCSE Duration 1 Year Entry Requirements Entry to the course requires Mathematics at grade D. The course is aimed at students with a near miss to a grade C. The November course is fast-paced so students need to be willing to work very hard over the eight weeks and remain in a Maths GCSE group until results are published in January. Course content This course has been produced to meet the needs of the post-16 student. It follows a modular approach to the study of Mathematics. There are three self-contained units: Unit 1: Handling data This unit encourages students to be critical when considering data, and demonstrates how to present and analyse these data. Unit 2: Number and algebra/Shape, space and measures 1 This unit covers problem solving, use of mathematical language, estimation, mental arithmetic, graphical representation, geometry, powers, roots, fractions, sequences, functions, transformations, co-ordinates and measures. Unit 3: Number and algebra/Shape, space and measures 2 This builds on the work in the previous unit and covers powers, roots, decimals, percentages, mental arithmetic, effective use of calculators, estimation, equations, formulae, identities, sequences, functions, graphs, measures, constructions, trigonometry, vectors and loci. How Will I Be Assessed? The GCSE November students sit all modules in November. There is no coursework, all assessment is by examination. The GCSE June groups sit one unit in November, one unit in March and the terminal unit 2 in May/June. There is no coursework, all assessment is by examination. What Could I Do Next? Mathematics GCSE at Grade C or above is a highly desirable qualification and is necessary for entry to many careers and courses in Further and Higher Education. Are There Any Special Expenses? Students are required to have their own scientific calculator and a set of geometrical instruments.
