Are you planning on starting the A-level Maths course this year?
As anyone who’s done the A-level Maths course will tell you, it’s pretty intense right from Day One.
If you can make sure that you’re fully up to speed on the aspects of GCSE Maths that the A-level builds on, then you’re going to find the transition from GCSE to A-level Maths much easier.
That’s where the “Flying Start to A-level Maths” (FSALM) course can help you.
With this course, you can bridge the gap between what you’ve actually covered in school and what you’re going to need for the A-level.
What’s different about Personal Platinum?
The Personal Platinum edition of the course is a 10-week programme following the same basic shape as the Guided Gold package, but tailored to you personally.
It essentially comprises:
- Full access to the online course (Self-paced Silver version)
- A weekly 30-minute 1-to-1 online tutorial with the course author
As it’s individually tailored, you can start it at any time of year, subject to the availability of a slot, but the individual support element means that the number of slots available is very limited.
If you would like to enquire about availability then click here or on the MORE INFO button above, and use the Contact form to get in touch.
What’s in the course?
Written and delivered by a qualified teacher with well over 15 years’ experience of teaching Maths at GCSE and A-level, the course is suitable for all exam boards.
It looks at just the relevant parts of the GCSE (including a few bits that you’ll have done in Science rather than Maths) that you’re going to need for the A-level.
On all three versions you get:
- Over 10 hours of specially-recorded videos
- none of the drawbacks of live webinars
- work through at your own pace
- lots of opportunities to practise skills
- rewind and repeat as many times as you like
- Practice questions with full worked solutions and other supporting resources
- A free Facebook group where you can get help with anything you’re still struggling with
- A completion certificate when you finish the course
- A no-quibble money-back guarantee
- Links to recommended free sources of additional practice
- A subscription that doesn’t expire – so you can revisit the course at any time.
These are the topics covered:
How should I use the course?
You’ll be enrolled on the Self-paced Silver edition of the course, as that gives you immediate access to all the lessons. The 1-to-1 tutorials – 11 of them in all – will be arranged individually, based on mutual availability.
Click on the Curriculum tab (if you’re on mobile then it’s the middle one, with the hamburger icon) to see the course structure. (Do it on the Silver course rather than here, as there’s very little in this one!) Once you’re enrolled, if you click on one of the lessons then you’ll be taken into that lesson.
In each lesson, work through the video, pausing when prompted to work out answers to the questions. In some cases there are accompanying handouts available for download.
After completing each video lesson, take a break from that topic for a day or two. After that, work through the relevant practice questions and then check your working against the model solutions. If you get stuck then try to only reveal a little of the solution at a time, and see if you can get a bit further on your own before revealing the next bit.
Try, if you can, to revisit each topic after a few days and then again after 3-4 weeks, in between studying other topics. You can do this by re-doing the relevant worksheet, or by seeking out Higher GCSE questions on the same topic and doing those. This is called interleaving and really helps you to remember the content.
