All programmes at Wizard Education aim to help students work towards the new OCR GCSE Maths B course which includes four key areas: Number, Algebra, Geometry and Measures and Statistics. This award is externally assessed at the end of the course. Ultimately we aim to help develop learners' mathematical understanding, familiarise them with problem solving and teach maths that is appropriate to their individual needs. Functional Skills and Entry Level Maths will also be offered as appropriate. On joining Wizard, students will be set an assessment to identify strengths and areas for improvement whilst also gain an indication of the current level of performance. An appropriate program will then be agreed for the individual.
Sessions will mainly be in group format with additional individual support available as required within the group and further one to one sessions where this is beneficial.
Maths will also be embedded into individual projects, enterprise duties and other activities for instance: Costings, bookkeeping, spreadsheets, assessing break even points for product or service pricing, analysis etc are all used in enterprise whilst using measurements, shapes, angles, fractions and simple physics are all used in the workshops.
Practical application will be used to reinforce learning wherever possible
