The aims and objectives of the new GCSE (9–1) Mathematics are to enable students to:
● Develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
● Acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
● Reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences, and draw conclusions
● Comprehend, interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context.
Students either need to already have a grade D in GCSE Maths or a L2 Functional Skills Qualification. Students should be eager to become independent and develop their work skills through the interactive GCSE Maths Moodle site.
How will I be assessed?
Students will sit three final exams in the summer term. Regular, formative assessments will take place to ensure students feel confident in the knowledge they have acquired.
