Maths Functional Skills Entry 3

Do you need to improve your maths to help you in your daily life, with work or your studies? Do you need to increase your confidence with maths? Do you need to work towards a GCSE? These courses will help you gain essential mathematical skills and also enable you to get a qualification. You will need to come for an assessment before you start. These courses are free.
  • Who is it for?

    This course is for you if you want to improve your skills in using mathematics for work or everyday life and gain maths qualifications step by step. It will make maths real and help you to understand and use maths competently in solving practical problems at work or home. To get on the course, you need to be able to do some simple arithmetic - for example order, compare and use whole numbers up to 100; add, subtract, multiply and divide numbers; use halves and quarters; and solve basic practical problems that people would normally come across when shopping, working or doing DIY - for instance, working out the total cost of groceries and the change you would get from a given amount of money. It is particularly suitable for students who want to work at a slower pace.

  • What does it cover?

    On this course, you will practise:

    How to add, subtract, multiply and divide whole numbers
    How to use fractions, percentages and decimals
    How to measure lengths, weight, capacity, time and temperature
    How to calculate with lengths, weight, capacity, time and temperature
    How to interpret and use graphs and charts
    How to work with ratio and scale

  • What will it be like?

    It will be different from the way you learned maths at school. The activities will vary and include discussions, group work, individual work and quizzes, all in a very supportive environment . You will have fun, work hard and get what you put into the course.

    You will have lots of individual attention from the tutor as well as the support of your classmates.

  • What else do I need to buy or do?

    You will need:
    A file to keep your work in
    A4 lined paper
    A calculator
    A pen

    You will need to do homework and practise at home. You will also need to have a little spare time to prepare for you exam in the summer.

  • What could it lead to?

    At the end of the course you will decide with your tutor which is the most appropriate next course for you.

    You may also wish to combine this maths course with our other Functional Skills classes in English or ICT, or with ESOL or our digital literacy courses.

    The course could also help you prepare for our Payroll or Bookkeeping classes.

    There is detailed information in Reception about all our courses at the Mary Ward Centre.
