At Skipton Tutors we offer English, Science, 11 plus and Maths tuition to students of all ages. In our blog series we look to cover a number of different areas from the 11 plus mock exams we have to GCSE Maths content. In this week’s blog we are looking at the GCSE Maths 9-1 topic estimating. Estimations have always been part of the non-calculator paper. Estimation questions require students to round numbers, then multiply and divide to calculate a reasonable estimate. There are different methods that need to be learnt for these questions such as how to divide by a decimal. To access GCSE Maths estimation questions you can visit Maths Made Easy, the best place for GCSE Maths resources. From estimations worksheets to more contextualised practise questions you will find everything you need to comprehensively revise estimations as well as a course guide that tells you what basics you need to know. Students should practise all maths topics until they find the question type easy, don’t just move on because you have got a couple of questions correct.
For students who revise but still struggle with certain topics you can always look to book a GCSE Maths tutor in Skipton. Our GCSE Maths tutors are all qualified and experienced and we ensure they are DBS checked as well. Contact us for more information on our one to one tuition in Skipton.
