This class will help Higher GCSE students with strong maths skills to decide if they want to take A-Level Mathematics next year. We will cover some of the earliest concepts that form part of the A-Level with an emphasis on understanding the theory and answering the questions.

Lesson 1: Numbers - Discover the different types of numbers in this session. We will recap algebra, powers and surds and introduce polynomials and graph plotting. This content forms a large part of the following sessions as polynomials and numbers permeate through all areas of maths.

Lesson 2: Differentiation - Differentiating equations is one of the key skills to learn as a young mathematician. It’s an important concept and in this lesson, we will spend some time learning what differentiation is and how to do it to polynomials. In the real world, it has many applications, including science, engineering and business.

Lesson 3: Integration - Integration is another really important part of maths and is actually the opposite of differentiation! If you can wrap your head around differentiation, then integration will be a breeze. Like differentiation, integration can be applied to many different areas and concepts that involve mathematics.

Lesson 4: Trigonometry - Trig. Useful for triangles, yes, but also so much more. Recap the sine and cosine rules before developing your knowledge of sin, cosine and tangent to work with all triangles and how these trig functions can be used to solve equations through identities.
