Maths

Information for Students

Some students find the transition from GCSE to A Level quite tough, so in order that you make the best possible start to the course we have prepared the transition materials below.

The aim of this work is to help you to consolidate Levels 7, 8 & 9 GCSE work, which is the foundation of the maths you will be studying at A-Level. It is vital that you start your A-Level course with a thorough grasp of this work as we unfortunately do not have enough time to cover it all during lessons.

The transition material reviews and consolidates the knowledge and skills you gained at GCSE, and consists of:

•  Topic Notes

•   Videos

•   My Maths Tutorials

  1. Please study the notes, videos and tutorials listed below in full before the start of Year 12.
  2. Complete the MyMaths homework only if you need further practice. The MyMaths login is ‘cleveland’ and the password is ‘triangle’. Once you have logged in you do not need an individual login as you can do the homework for fun.

If you have any questions or issues, for example you cannot login to MyMaths, then please email Mr Wilkinson,  twilkinson@hajc.leics.sch.uk
