About this course

 

The Mathematics department at Studio West is keen to develop the curriculum with the learner centre to the role. As a result the department has decided to offer the Edexcel Mathematics syllabus for Mathematics.

 

The GCSE places a greater emphasis on the ability to apply mathematical knowledge to problem solving and use mathematical reasoning. We feel this matches the need and expectations of Studio West and will develop more confident learners who will have skills employers will be looking for.

 

The department has many resources to support the learner. The new Edexcel textbook covers much of the curriculum and contains graded questions that support, stretch and challenge all learners.

 

The department is also keen to develop and use online learning platforms to help promote independent study and differentiate the work for each learner. MyMaths is an online web platform that supports learners through individual lessons, set homework and tasks that match the new curriculum.

 

Mathswatch is an online platform that has an associated app for mobile phones. Learners' can watch clips, complete tasks and monitor their progress through activity sheets.

 

Lessons themselves are varied in nature and flexible to the need of the learner. The skills taught in the lessons match the CREATE framework.

 

The department also stores exam papers, topic questions and tests for learners to access and print.
