What will the course cover?

Number: read & write large numbers; 4 rules of whole numbers, decimals and fractions. Compare fractions,decimals and percentages. Measure, shape and space: use Imperial & Metric units of measurement: weight, capacity, length, distance, area, perimeter, volume, time, money, 2-D and 3-D shapes. Handling data: extract and interpret information from a range of lists, tables, charts, graphs and other diagrams; represent and interpret numerical information; use averages; predict the likely outcome of an event.

Who is the course for?

Students who wish to develop and improve their ability to understand and use mathematical information; interpret results and communicate mathematical information in a variety of contexts, including work situations. Students wishing to help their children with Maths will find this course useful.
