GCSE Maths revision course in London (Easter)



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

  • 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
  • The hierarchy of operations, including inverse operations
  • Surds in exact calculations
  • Calculating upper and lower bounds

  • Manipulating algebraic expressions by collecting like terms, multiplying a single term bracket, factorising quadratic expressions and simplifying rational expressions
  • Setting up and solving simple equations including simultaneous equations in two unknowns
  • Solving quadratic equations
  • Formula: deriving one, substituting numbers and changing the subject
  • Solving line inequalities in one or two variables, and represent the solution using a coordinate grid
  • Generate terms of a sequence using term-to-term and position-to-term definitions of the sequence
  • Finding and using the nth term of an arithmetic sequence using linear expressions
  • Plane and plot: recognize and plot equations that correspond to straight-line graphs in the coordinate plane, including finding gradients
  • Interpreting and analyzing graphs
  • Drawing and plotting a range of mathematical functions, including cubic functions, the exponential function, the circular function.
  • Drawing various graphs after real life situations
  • Properties of angles at a point, angles on a straight line (including right angles) perpendicular lines, and opposite angles at a vertex
  • The angle properties of parallel lines, triangles and quadrilaterals

  • 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
  • Using vectors to solve problems
  • The effect of enlargement for perimeter, area and volume of shapes and solids
  • The inaccuracy of measurements, making estimates and converting measurements from one unit to another

  • 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
  • Understanding and using estimates of measures of probability (including equally likely outcomes), or from relative frequency
  • Using diagrams to represent outcomes of compound events, recognizing when events are independent
