GCSE Mathematics is a key requirement for many job roles as it demonstrates an understanding of numbers and an ability to work with them. This distance learning course is designed to help students progress through to their exams and it places great emphasis on "doing mathematics" and relating this wherever possible, to everyday life. Certain techniques and formulae need to be learnt, but the emphasis on "doing" means that you should work carefully through all the examples and exercises in order to be able to solve problems effectively.

The Maths GCSE distance learning course gently guides the student through basic mathematical skills, progressing onto more advanced material as the student's skills and abilities develop. A reasonable level of proficiency in arithmetical skills is assumed.... [-]
