Supporting your child with KS3 Mathematics

We are thrilled to be offering a brand new course this term for families with children who are KS3 age (11-14 years old). This 10 week course will cover the foundations and main concepts of the KS3 mathematics curriculum in Wales. We will be looking at re-learning and boosting your skills in several topics that can be challenging for children such as;

  • Fractions, decimals, percentages and ratio,
  • Managing money
  • Angles and position
  • Shape, construction and movement
  • Expressions and formulae
  • Functions and graphs
  • Equations and inequalities
  • Probability.

This course will allow families to confidently support their children with their KS3 maths homework. As well as weekly online classes, there will also be a weekly online session for families to troubleshoot any maths problems with the tutor that arise from their child’s school homework. There will also be some fun, educational STEM activities for all the family to enjoy at home, which will help families consolidate some of the KS3 maths skills taught on the course.

All courses are free to all families and are accredited with an Agored Cymru unit.

Participants will become a student of CAVC.
