All Years 8, 9 and 10 pupils follow a course looking at various aspects of Mathematics: - Number Work, Algebra, Shapes, Space and Measurement and Handling Data.
Work is also carried out by the pupils in KS3 which helps their understanding and their ability to apply Mathematics to various situations across the curriculum.
At KS4 pupils in Year 11 and 12 follow a CCEA GCSE Course in Mathematics for the two years. This course is a modular course and pupils will have part of their GCSE examined in Year 11 and the rest in Year 12.
- When you revise maths most of your time should be spent doing questions, not just reading your notes or text book.
- Read over a section in your notes and make sure you understand the examples. Then try some questions on that topic.
- There are links to videos that will help you if you need a little more help.
- The school subscribes to two VLE s in particular that are very useful.
You can access this by going to the mathswatch website at http://www.mathswatchvle.com/.
If you are using a phone or tablet you can download the mathswatch app-make sure it is the free version that you install. In either case you will need the following login details.

2. Just Maths
Go to Student Area(worksheets etc) or Top 40 Tutorials (videos)
There you will see a list of topics and can click to watch a video on the topic.
These are both aimed at GCSE so in places will obviously go to a higher level than is required in
Year 8, but they will be useful in time all the same.
