At the start of a new academic year, I would like to take the opportunity to remind all Year 10 and 11 students of the importance that Method Maths can have in revision and the practice of mathematics.
Method Maths is a website that the school subscribes to and it has played an effective role in assisting pupils to prepare for their examinations and practice mathematical skills throughout the two years of the GCSE maths course.
Method Maths provides access to past GCSE papers of both the Foundation and Higher tiers and provides guided support when needed to assist students to understand and complete past exam questions. The website also marks your answers as you go so that you can check your progress. It also indicates what grade of work that you are currently achieving, as well as showing what needs to be done to improve your grade.
The Method Maths website is also used in school as part of our intervention strategies and has been shown to make a positive impact on results.
All students have been allocated a Method Maths account and their classroom teacher has or will provide these details. Room 11 is available after school on Wednesdays for Method Maths practice supported by members of the mathematics department.
