# GCSE Maths revision course in London (Easter)

Edexcel

### Why do an Ester Revision course in Maths at Ashbourne College?

Students will benefit from the individual attention which is a key feature of the Ashbourne Easter Revision programme.

### There will be revision in the following areas

NumberAlgebraGeometryMeasuresStatistics
• Adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing number (whole numbers, intergers, fractions, decimals and numbers in index form, negative numbers)
• Ordering rational numbers, including integers, decimal and fractions
• Identifying factors, multiples and prime numbers, and finding the prime factor decomposition of positive integers, finding common factors and common multiples
• Square and square root (positive and negative), and cube and cube root, using index notation
• Index laws for multiplication and division of integer, fractional and negative powers, and interpret, order and calculate with numbers in
• Fractions: finding equivalent fractions, simplifying a fraction, adding and subtracting fractions, using decimal notation
• Percentage: compare proportions and repeated proportional change, as well as direct and indirect proportion
• Ratios: using them and writing them in their simplest form, and writing a given quantity into a given ratio

• Understanding and constructing geometrical proofs usingcircle theorem
• Using 2-D representation of 3-D shapes
• Describing and transforming 2-D shapes using single or combined rotations, reflections, translations, or enlargements by a positive, fractional or negative scale factor and distinguish properties that are preserved under particular transformations
• Carrying out constructions, including constructing loci
• Calculate perimeters and areas of shapes made from triangles, rectangles and other shapes

• Extracting data from tables and creating charts and diagrams from various data types
• Calculating median, mean, range, quartiles and interquatile range, mode and modal class
• Interpreting a wide range of graphs and diagrams and draw conclusions
• Recognising correlation and draw and/or use lines of best fit by eye, understanding what these represent
• Comparing distributions and make inferences
• The vocabulary of probability and the probability scale
