Welcome to Ultimate guide to IGCSE Math (0580). This course is an absolute monster. I don't even know how to count the number of hours it took to put it together. That's comforting knowing that about your Math teacher right?
But seriously, it took me a really long time. I basically looked at the syllabus for IGCSE Math (0580) and made a lecture for every single topic that is covered. I scoured the internet but I couldn't find one course that had it all, so I'm hoping to bridge that gap for you guys doing the IGCSE this year or in the coming years by providing you everything in the one spot.
Note - this course covers topics in the core curriculum and the extended one, so depending on which one you're doing, please refer to the curriculum attached at the end of section 1 (numbers) and only do the relevant topics.
The high-level topics that are covered are:
5. Co-ordinate geometry
7. Matrices and Transformations
8. Statistics and Probability
As you can see from these topics (as well as the curriculum below), I cover some of the major topics at a high school level so this course is definitely not limited to those doing the IGCSE. Since Math is very generic, it will contain topics covered in most countries including the US, India etc. So be sure to check it out!
If you're someone who has a couple of years till you start IGCSE/GCSE, then I suggest you have a look at my Learn basic high school maths the easy way course to kick things off. I'll take you through all the basics you need to be really good at before starting IGCSE.
Is there a topic or topics missing in the course?
If you find I haven't covered a topic that you need at this level, let me know in the discussions and I'll be happy to add it in :). Also if you have specific questions that you're having trouble solving, then I'll be happy to put up some videos explaining those too.
Thanks so much for being here folks. If you knew me personally (and I hope that we do get to meet one day), you'd know how humbling I find this adventure with you. See you on the inside :)
Who this course is for:
- This course is perfect for anyone taking the IGCSE.
- This course is perfect for anyone looking to learn important topics covered in high school Math (check the curriculum).
- This course covers Math up to a Grade 10 level so if you're beyond that, this course is NOT for you!
- Although I've specifically covered the curriculum for IGCSE, it covers common Math topics applicable to students in all countries.
Hi guys, my name is Adi Chanda. I've been teaching maths for almost 10 years now to students of all ages. My experience has given me some great insights on what works for students and what doesn't. After seeing a number of students struggle with basic high school maths, I decided to upload these step by step instructional videos that take you through some of the basic maths topics.
I decided to create the 'Chanda Academy', with the hopes of one day providing access to these videos to people all around the world, who don't have access to quality education today. I want to harness the power of the internet and bring these courses to anyone and everyone so that there can be more empowered adults in the world going forward.
As for the videos themselves, I only employ methods that have been tried and tested over the years so I'm confident that these will be an invaluable tool for anyone looking for that leg up in their maths knowledge. I have plans to grow the library of videos on Chanda Academy by collaborating with experts in other fields like Science, History etc. in the future. I want it to be a one-stop shop for students worldwide.
Personally, I love teaching Maths to students of all ages so I couldn't think of a better way to make an impact on a global scale. I want to continuously create great resources for you guys, so please feel free to provide any suggestions you may have. I'm going to make up a ton of courses across a wide variety of topics at all levels. If there are specific topics you'd like me to cover definitely let me know.
What are my qualifications?
I have an Electrical Engineering degree and work as a technical product manager in a leading telco company here in Melbourne, Australia, making maths a vital part of my everyday life. I fell into teaching almost accidentally when I was 18; I loved it so much that I decided to start doing it more professionally and have been tutoring ever since. I've had some really great successes over the years but I was dissatisfied with only being able to reach students locally. Then I heard about Udemy...and well as they say the rest is history :)
I love hearing from you guys so please don't be shy and send me a message with whatever's on your mind...doesn't even have to be Maths related :)
