In years 9, 10 and 11 students receive 8 lessons per fortnight, usually with one teacher. Students learn the same 6 main topics which are developed further in each year. Pupils will sit three 1.5 hour exams at the end of year 11, either in a foundation or higher tier. Those in top set will also be given the opportunity to sit the “Level 2 Qualification in Further Mathematics” to smooth transition from GCSE to A-level maths.
Parental advice - The school recommends the use of two online resources:
1. Mathswatch vle.mathswatch.com (This is Mr Pay’s favourite). Note new login process below.
- Login: pupils school email address e.g. Joe Bloggs would be firstname.lastname@example.org
- Password: moulton2016
The Mathswatch site provides excellent interactive learning and is a great revision source to prepare them for their exams. There are many ways to find what they want by using the search/filter boxes, selecting clip number, by grade or by topic.
2. MyMaths www.mymaths.co.uk
- login: moulton
- password: triangle
Every pupil has also got a personal login and password which can be used to do online homework which may be set by the teacher or for the pupil to revise via the online worksheets and online homework sheets allowing them to keep a log of what they have done. One of the best parts of MyMaths is the Booster Packs section which is on the left hand side which can support progression through the grades.
GCSE Revision guides are also available for £2.50 from the maths office.
