Maths Skills for A-level Physics Course

This one-day online course will cover all the mathematical knowledge and skills students need for their Physics A-level. From solving equations to error calculations, students will leave this course feeling able to answer even the most difficult questions.

Students often struggle with the Maths side of A-level Sciences, particularly if their other chosen subjects are Arts or Humanities-based. Our tutor will teach students the methods they need to tackle maths questions with ease and help them understand the underlying concepts behind each step. This deeper understanding will help students remember the steps meaning they are less likely to make mistakes in the future. The simple methods taught will save time in exams and can be applied to questions of all difficulty levels. The skills learnt during the course will leave students confident and ready to excel in the year ahead.
