Each student has their own individual second tier log in if they dont know it they need to ask their class teacher. Password area PIXL Maths App All boys will be given login details for this Google PIXL maths app and it is the first

search result. GCSE Examiners reports On all papers, the quality of arithmetic gave cause for concern. Poor arithmetic results in the loss of too many marks, and more time spent by centres on

basic arithmetic skills would be time well spent. On non-calculator papers, it is the standard of basic arithmetic that loses marks through the paper. And this concern is at all levels of ability. Their comprehension of mathematics often outstrips their numerical ability. Arithmetic errors caused problems for

students who otherwise engaged with a question and decided not to use a calculator. Some students did not show the working from their calculator. Arithmetic Take a challenge allows both legacy spec and 9-1 spec challenges to be taken

Therapy Tuition PowerPoints and videos Practice questions Answers Expectations The Mathematics syllabus has the most content of any GCSE, so every lesson counts

Concentration, maturity, a good work ethic and commitment Homework completing on time and acting on feedback Expectations Taking responsibility for their own learning addressing any areas for improvement One form time a week is dedicated to improving their numeracy skills, so boys must use this time wisely How can you help as parents?

Check that your son is completing homework Check exercise books and look at teacher feedback Use the maths objectives sheets to target weak areas and extend their learning Use assessments review sheets to target questions they got wrong
