## Description

This course aims to be an introduction to core mathematics concepts that are also very useful in our daily lives. The course focuses specifically on content which is tested in GCSE maths exams, but these concepts are also very useful for performing well in all of our classes which require the use of math, and specifically fractions and percentages. I am always open to feedback on how the course can be improved in the future, so feel free to leave a comment about this! This is the first course I have ever created, so I have a lot yet to learn, but I am very happy with how this turned out. The topics covered in this course are: arithmetic, multiples, factors, making approximations through rounding and using upper and lower bounds, fractions, ratios, proportions, percentages with a focus on percentage increases and decreases and compound percentage changes. We take a heavy problem and example based approach to understanding the various topics because I believe that the best way to learn math is by working through questions. We also focus on the different methods that can be used to solve various problems, as in mathematics there are often many methods we can apply to come to the same, correct solution. By learning these varied methods it can deepen our understanding of the concepts and give us more tools to solve problems in the future. I really hope you find this course useful!

Mathematics has always been my favourite subject. I studied Mathematics at the London School of Economics and achieved a First Class Honours degree! I also took GCSE and A-Level Mathematics and got an A* in both, and also achieved an A in A-Level Further Mathematics. I am planning to make courses for to help you prepare for your GCSE maths exams!
