Struggling with the maths in your course? Puzzled about how to statistically analyse your data? Need to brush up on some maths you've forgotten? See our lessons, worked examples and guidance across key branches of mathematics and statistics.
We have divided the basic mathematics and statistics curriculum into 60 Units of work. We have focused on a number of courses, providing the Units of work needed to support the main topics in these courses. Alternatively you can pick out individual units you need for revision and reinforcement.
For each Unit of work, we provide an animated powerpoint that covers the key methods needed to understand the concepts covered with illustrative worked examples; we also provide online worked examples that provide the help and support needed to gain confidence and success. Key results and a glossary of terms used is provided for each Unit.

The learning platform is designed to help you detect your misconceptions and help you to correct them; mathematics is a very linear subject and often the issues that learners have relate to earlier concepts that have not been fully understood. We hope this resource based facility will help you to move forward by first uncovering earlier mistakes and providing the facility to move forward in a sympathetic and logical way.
If you have got through the powerpoint including the fitness checks, you can get plenty more practice by going to the interactive exercises that give both illustrative worked examples and questions where answers are checked and feedback given.

We start with basic maths and stats that you would cover in Functional Skills courses and move through GCSE Mathematics, Foundation and Higher Tiers onto A-Level topics in Mathematics, including Algebra, Calculus, Mechanics and Statistics.
Some courses, such as GCSE, will have external assessment available and Units will be badged to show completing of the Unit of work; in future, we plan to provide certification based on online assessment.
