Maths Skills for A Level Physics Course – Online

Course Information

Course Description

This one-day online course will cover all the mathematical knowledge and skills students need for their Physics A Level exams. After completing this course, students will feel confident in their abilities to solve a wide variety of mathematical problems, from error calculations to solving equations.

Students often struggle with the Maths side of A Level Sciences, particularly if their other chosen subjects are Arts or Humanities-based. Our tutor will teach students the methods they need to tackle maths questions with ease and help them understand the underlying concepts behind each step.

This improved comprehension will help pupils recall the steps, making them less likely to make mistakes in the future. The simple methods taught will save time in exams and can be applied to questions of any difficulty level. The skills acquired during the course will leave students feeling confident and prepared to excel in the coming year.

Suitable for:

  • Year 12 students
  • Year 13 students
  • Students looking to cover the mathematical knowledge and skills required for their course.
  • Students looking to review subject knowledge

If you need help deciding if you will benefit from this course you can contact us. Alternatively, you may prefer to book 1-2-1 tuition instead.
