More than just the study of shapes, in this section you will explore the properties of angles the concepts of rotations and much more. You will also develop an understanding of the concepts of area and volume and how to calculate such for a range of different shapes. By the end of this unit, angles will be a piece of cake.
In this section, you shall develop a deep and clear understanding of probabilities. Not just understanding the concept of odds, you will explore various graphical representations of probability such as tree diagrams.
Another vastly important element of various other subjects such as Science and Geography, Statistics is a hugely important section of mathematics. In fact, you can go on to study this area in details at A-Level. The unit involves such skills as inferring information about populations based on statistical analysis and getting to grips with primary or secondary data sets.
