MATHEMATICS at PARRS WOOD
Year 11 Students on a Maths residential combining exam preparation with outdoor activities
Mathematics is a popular subject at Parrs Wood with a high number of pupils choosing to continue its study into A-Level.
The Maths Faculty aims to bring Maths to life to ensure that all pupils can access and enjoy the curriculum.
As teachers we strive to provide a rich and meaningful course that will allow each pupil to reach their potential.
Each teaching group will receive a minimum of one homework per week. This will be set and collected by their class teacher. In addition to this, all students are expected to study independently to consolidate their learning and revise for module exams.
Students may find the ‘Mathswatch’ CD a useful tool for revision and consolidation. These are recommended by the department as an independent learning resource and are available from the maths office for £4.
A LEVEL MATHEMATICS COURSES
We offer the following courses at A Level (Click on the name for a subject leaflet):
Mathematics - Pure, Applied and Statistics
A LEVEL BRIDGING PACK
In order to be prepared for a successful year of AS Mathematics we expect all of our new students to download and complete the A level Mathematics bridging pack. If you can complete this pack and are comfortable will all of the skills involved then you will have a good foundation on which to build upon during your first year of the course. If you struggle with any topics in the pack then we would advise you to seek help at your first available opportunity in order to bring your skills up to the required level.
We look forward to seeing all of our new students in September ready for a successful year.
