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.
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.
All students will have an interview and an initial assessment before joining the class.
