Description
If you need to demonstrate your understanding of numbers and math, this Emagister distance learning course in Mathematics will help you get the job of your dreams.
GCSE Mathematics is a key requirement for many work roles, as it demonstrates an understanding of numbers and an ability to work with them. This distance learning course is designed to help students advance their exams and puts great emphasis on "doing math" and relate this whenever possible to everyday life. Certain techniques and formulas must be learned, but the emphasis on "doing" means that you must work carefully with all the examples and exercises to be able to solve problems effectively.
The Maths GCSE distance learning course guides the student smoothly through basic math skills, progressing to more advanced material as the student's skills and abilities develop. A reasonable level of competence in arithmetic skills is assumed.
Each lesson begins with a set of wellestablished objectives and an explanation of their place in the general program of study. Effective learning is encouraged with regular activities and selfassessment questions. There are thirteen tasks marked by a tutor and a practice exam.
If you still have questions, ask for more information through the Emagister website and the Distance Learning Center will answer your questions personally.

The Syllabus:
The Maths GCSE course prepares students for the new AQA GCSE Mathematics Specification 8300 for exams in May/June 2017 and later years. This syllabus has been chosen as it is the most suited to distance learning. Assessment is by three examination papers.
The course covers both the intermediate and higher tier levels and it is a personal choice which you decide to complete. You only need to decide which tier to choose when you arrange your exams, and this can be discussed with your tutor as you progress with your studies.
Please Note: This is a new linear syllabus with first exams in May/June 2017. The new syllabus GCSE's now have a different grading system to previous years, The grading system for new GCSE's is Grades 1 to 9 with 9 being the highest grade,
GCSE Mathematics has a Foundation tier (grades 1 – 5) and a Higher tier (grades 4 – 9). Students must take three question papers at the same tier. All question papers must be taken in the same series. Some students may only need to obtain a Grade 4 or 5 if they progressing onto a further education course, in which case you would probably be best sitting the foundation papers while some courses such as a Maths A Level may only accept students if they have completed the GCSE at higher tier.
 Paper 1 is 33.33% of the total marks. The paper is a Written Paper (Noncalculator). The exam is 1 Hour, 30 Minutes and is 80 marks.
 Paper 2 is 33.33% of the total marks. The paper is a Written Paper (With calculator). The exam is 1 Hour, 30 Minutes and is 80 marks.
 Paper 3 is 33.33% of the total marks. The paper is a Written Paper (With calculator). The exam is 1 Hour, 30 Minutes and is 80 marks.
There is a mix of question styles within the exams, from short, singlemark questions to multistep problems. The mathematical demand increases as a student progresses through the paper.
The course consists of the following Units:
Foundation Level:
 Unit 1 – Numbers
 Unit 2 – Money
 Unit 3 – Measurement
 Unit 4 – Basic Algebra
 Unit 5 – Basic Trigonometry and Vectors
 Unit 6 – Basic Geometry
 Unit 7 – Further Geometry
 Unit 8 – Probability and Statistics
Additional units to be studied by students aiming for the higher tier:
 Unit 9 – Further Numbers and Equations
 Unit 10 – Higher Algebra Topics
 Unit 11 – Further Geometry and Trigonometry
 Unit 12 – Further Probability and Statistics
 Unit 13 – The Examination
