About this course

This 4-week online introduction to Maths course aims to help adults gain confidence in their Maths skills. This is taught in line with the adult functional skills curriculum from entry level 3- level 2. 


On our introduction to Maths course you will learn how to apply your Maths skills to everyday situations through a one hour online ‘lesson’ with your tutor and other students once a week and then will be given an independent task to send back to your tutor and receive individual feedback on. 


This course will give a good insight into what is involved in our 19-week Functional Maths courses that lead to a City and Guilds qualification.


By the end of the course you will be able to; 

  • Correctly carry out column addition and subtraction 
  • Confidently use a chosen method to divide and multiply numbers 
  • Investigate value for money 
  • Read measurements correctly and apply these to an everyday setting 
  • Identify 2D and 3D shapes 
  • Read data on a chart and input own data into a graph of your choice 

Learners need to provide - Pen and paper, pencil, ruler and calculator
