Description

This new GCSE Maths revision course is a guide to get you up to speed on all Number topics of the BRAND NEW Maths GCSE, to be sat for the first time in the spring of 2017.

The course is structured to improve your confidence step-by-step, broken down into 5 modules that contain a number of lectures. Each lecture will focus on the correct method and specific examples of each topic, allowing you to digest the content in small chunks at a time.

Included in the course are the following topics:

  • Number Operations
  • Fractions, Decimals & Percentages
  • Indices & Surds
  • Approximation & Estimation
  • Ratio, Proportion & Rates of Change

There is a worksheet that accompanies each lecture to give you more practice at the concepts taught.

At the end of each module a quiz will test your understanding on the concepts taught.

Each video lecture can also be used as a stand alone help video, so you can cherry pick topics that you are struggling with once you have completed the course to give you further confidence.

It is complimented by three other courses that focus on Algebra, Shape and Data respectively (available on Udemy soon)!

Maths & Science Tutor

My educational background has seen me achieve both a GCSE and A-Level in Maths, and I am currently studying an Open University degree in Astronomy & Planetary Science, the cornerstone of which is laden with higher level Mathematics.

I have been privately tutoring Maths for over five years to a great mixture of students, studying both foundation and higher GCSE. This has recently culminated in the start of a tutoring business due to the influx of students I have acquired, all of which make steady improvement under my tuition.

This course is the culmination of my academic knowledge, coupled with real-world learning of those who struggle in Maths. It WILL help you gain confidence and could be that extra boost you have been looking for.
