Your exam, in week 19, will take place at one of our Nottinghamshire libraries. 

On completion of this course you will be confident using numbers in every life;  understand a range of methods to help you solve problems and use your skills to support you progress within your chosen area.

Topics covered include:

  • Shape, space and measure:  working with measures; calculating area and volume; understanding plan and elevation; using scale and co-ordinates.    
  • Handling data:  calculating averages; working with probability; using and drawing graphs and charts.
