A refresher on the demands of Higher GCSE Mathematics

Integral for trainee teachers is for anyone who has a place to start their teacher training but recognises that they would like to enhance their mathematical subject knowledge.

Why create this course?

Our experience of working with trainee teachers, many of whom have not been required to complete an SKE, shows us that there are often gaps in knowledge and understanding of key topics in Higher Tier GCSE. We have used our extensive set of resources to create a self-assessed, self-paced course covering all topics, from fractions through to 3D trigonometry and even a sneak peek of some A level calculus.

Integral for Trainee Teachers provides a route through curated topics and resources to help get you back up-to-speed with GCSE maths. You’re in control and select what you need to help you along the way.

Integral for Trainee Teachers is designed to guide you through the demands of GCSE maths and build empathy with the students you will be teaching.

This course will give you a grounding in the most important topics of GCSE maths. You need to appreciate the skills needed at this level in order to teach these topics effectively.

What’s in the course?

There are 18 topics. Each topic has its own online test, and you can track your progress across the whole course easily using the completion tracker. The results of any tests are just for you, nobody else monitors this course.

Each topic has notes and examples, practice questions with written solutions and an online section test that self-marks. Some topics have an interactive element, videos and other resources to help you become familiar again with the demands of the Higher Tier GCSE maths.

This is what our subscribers say

The walkthrough helped me visualise content as someone with a short attention span (wish there are more of it) and learning difficulties. The skills pack do help me practice.
Year 12 student
I find the whole site invaluable & a necessary subscription as I am a private entrant. The videos together with the rigorous tests push me to the limit, just what you need to achieve top marks.
A Level Student
We look around for other A Level resources each year, but nothing has been found that’s a better resource for EdExcel than Integral. Integral reduces marking by 4 hours every 2 weeks per class compared to other non-resourced subjects.

The improvements have been superb and it is great the way you listen and respond
It’s particularly great to have Integral as it currently is as a wonderful place to direct students for revision; it’s well-organised, has supporting notes/examples, and different levels of practice question, meaning that it’s ideal for us to suggest as a ‘go to’ place to build up topic-by-topic familiarity; thank you! 
The reason we buy Integral it is that we like the activities and the how students can use it independently.
