Please find attached a copy of this weeks targeted questions for Mathematics revision along with examiners tips and solutions. With the exception of questions 8 & 9, these are suitable for all students to practice with. Questions 8 & 9 are aimed at pupils entered for the Higher paper.
If your child has any difficulties with understanding any of the questions, please remind them that we are here to help and Maths support is available before school, at break and lunchtime and after school every day in FB5.
We are also offering a series of lessons to take place on a Saturday morning for the three consecutive weeks leading up to the first of our Mathematics GCSE examinations. Saturday School will run at Parkside School from 10:00am => 12:00pm and will take place on:
· 7 May, 2016
· 14 May, 2016
· 21 May, 2016
The sessions will provide essential practice with answering examination style questions and will also give your child the opportunity to ask for any additional help that they may need with any areas of the subject that they may be struggling with.
If you would like your child to attend any of these sessions, we would be grateful if you could ask your child to inform their Maths teacher by the Wednesday of the week prior to the session, or by emailing me directly to confirm attendance. To ensure that we have adequate staffing for the events, it is important that attendance is confirmed in advance and we will therefore be unable to accept pupils just turning up on the day. Further details will be communicated nearer the time.
We would like to thank you in anticipation of your support. If we can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact myself or your child's Mathematics teacher.
