Maths is one of the core subjects that all students must study and, along with GCSE English Language, it is one of your most important subjects. This course will teach you a wide range of mathematical knowledge and skills:
- To acquire and use problem-solving strategies
- To select and apply mathematical techniques and methods in mathematical, everyday and real-world situations
- To reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences and draw conclusions
- To interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context.
You will need to gain at least a grade C to study any A level courses and also for many career options, but whatever your future pathway, it is vital that you are confident in using number and in applying your numeracy skills in everyday situations.
