How can I help my child with their maths?

Every child at Carleton Community High School has their own personal username and password for the web site Although regular homework revision tasks are set on this site for completion outside the classroom all the tasks can be attempted at any time you wish. The web site includes on line lessons to help revise the topic and support any child that has been absent.

For years 9, 10 and 11, you can also obtain a homework book from school for a deposit of £5 payable to the school bursar. It has lots of revision exercises to practice new material taught in lessons. This book also contains a very useful CD-Rom with an electronic copy of the text book used in school maths lessons. The £5 deposit is refundable when the book is returned to the bursars in a good condition.

All learners also have access to the school VLE where past exam papers and mark schemes can be downloaded for enjoyment and practice!

You can also purchase to keep a Maths-Watch CD-Rom that contains mathematics video clips. Two discs are available. A level 3 to 5 disc for £3 recommended for years 7 and 8. A key stage 4 disc recommended for current year 9, 10 & 11 for £4 (this item is a DVD). As with the homework book pay your money into the bursar’s office and take the receipt to Mr N Parkinson, Head of Maths.

Calculators can also be purchased from school via the bursar’s office; £5 for a scientific calculator and £1.50 for a basic calculator (foundation tier only). A personal calculator is required for MOST exams.

Have fun, Maths is a very satisfying and enjoyable subject.
