Description

Learn the Algebra you need to know to get a good grade in GCSE Maths


Algebra is one of the foundations of GCSE Maths.  A good understanding of the basic concepts is essential for not just to get a higher grade in GCSE Maths but for subjects such as Physics, Engineering and Economics.  However with its letters and strange symbols it can be confusing. Hopefully after watching this course any confusion will be a thing of the past.

 This course will teach you 

  • How to simplify algebraic expressions

  • How to make x the subject o the equation

  • How to  solve equations and inequalities including Quadratic and Simultaneous Equations

  • How to recognise the different types of Sequences and Graphs

  • How to approach GCSE exam problems with ease


After completing this course, you will have a good grounding in most of the topics that will come up in GCSE Maths and be familiar with the type of questions you will get this level and how to answer them confidently.
