Dear Parent/Carer

Re: GCSE Mathematics Resources

We appreciate and thank you for your continued support in enabling us to develop your son/daughter to achieve their very best in Mathematics. To that end, we would like to pass on some important information. To help your son/daughter prepare for their GCSE exams, we are selling revision guides and revision workbooks for both the higher and foundation tiers. The total cost for both the revision guide and workbook is £6. If you wish to purchase these, please pay the full amount on ParentPay by Thursday 14 October.

The department offers a Maths helpline to all pupils every lunchtime in M3. If your child experiences any difficulties that cannot be addressed in lessons or would like any additional support with their mathematics, they are encouraged to attend. There will always be members of the Maths Department available to help during these times.

It is important that all students bring the correct equipment with them to every lesson. Students are expected to have a pen, pencil, ruler, eraser, pencil sharpener, protractor and a pair of compasses. In addition to this, all pupils are expected to own a scientific calculator and will need to bring this to every Maths lesson. We encourage pupils to buy the Casio fx-83GT Plus as this facilitates the class to be taught as a group.

We appreciate your continued support in these matters. Please do not hesitate to contact the Maths Department if you have any queries.

Yours faithfully

Miss K Seal                                             Mr K O’Sullivan
