7
Additional Mathematics Mathematicians in set 1, on both sides of the year, will have the opportunity to study for an additional Mathematics qualification.

8
What is Additional Mathematics? Additional Mathematics is a FSMQ (Free-Standing Mathematics Qualification) aimed at able KS4 students. We run a two year programme of GCSE Maths and Additional Maths completing both courses at the end of Year 11.

9
Why do Additional Mathematics? It has several benefits: It provides appropriate challenge. Also, helping many students to gain an A or A* at GCSE. The girls receive a broad and deep education in mathematics at an appropriate pace. They have a firm foundation on which to start their A level studies. More able students would be in a position to start Year 12 already confident with much of the material in Core 1 whilst ready for the challenge of Further Pure 1.

10
What can you do at home? Be positive about mathematics Equipment eg. Calculators, pens, rulers, protractors. Homework (set twice a week) Revision (as a guide - 30mins 4 times a week on top of homework)

11
Revision To help you help your daughters, you can get them to: Re- read the examples in their exercise book Use their textbook Ask somebody – parents, school friends, etc Attend revision clubs Buy Mathswatch CD (Foundation/ Higher) Buy CGP revision guide and workbook Download AQA past papers/ Complete specimen papers Use the internet; BBC Bitesize, Samlearning, Mymaths Ask their maths teacher.
