GCSE Mathematics

Programa académico

This distance learning IGCSE Mathematics course from UK Distance Learning and Publishing is designed to help meet the needs of those who want an introduction to this challenging subject, either with a view to further study at A Level or simply to supplement a portfolio of IGCSE/GCSE subjects.

  • Course Length - 12 Months
  • Award Received - IGCSE Mathematics
  • Course Code: UIGC02
An essential subject for all students, IGCSE Mathematics is a fully examined course which encourages the development of mathematical knowledge as a key life skill, and as a basis for more advanced study. The syllabus aims to build students' confidence by helping them develop a feel for numbers, patterns and relationships, and places a strong emphasis on solving problems and presenting and interpreting results. Students also learn how to communicate and reason using mathematical concepts. Mathematics at IGCSE or GCSE is often a requirement for those wishing to enter a number of key professions and further advanced courses. . What does the course prepare me for?
The study pack is designed to match closely the curriculum content of the syllabus and will provide you with the information and support you’ll need to take the exams with confidence.
The materials and accompanying exercises provided will help you to develop the necessary knowledge and confidence to successfully attempt the exams. The key parts of the course which are important in every aspect are planning your studies and practice assessments where feedback from your UK Distance Learning and Publishing tutor is of the utmost importance.

What will I be examined on?
The two assessment objectives in Mathematics are:
A Mathematical techniques
B Applying mathematical techniques to solve problems
A description of each assessment objective follows.
A Mathematical techniques
Candidates should be able to:
1. organise, interpret and present information accurately in written, tabular, graphical and diagrammatic forms;
2. perform calculations by suitable methods;
3. use an electronic calculator and also perform some straightforward calculations without a calculator;
4. understand systems of measurement in everyday use and make use of them in the solution of problems;
5. estimate, approximate and work to degrees of accuracy appropriate to the context and convert between equivalent numerical forms;
6. use mathematical and other instruments to measure and to draw to an acceptable degree of accuracy;
7. interpret, transform and make appropriate use of mathematical statements expressed in words or symbols;
8. recognise and use spatial relationships in two and three dimensions, particularly in solving problems;
9. recall, apply and interpret mathematical knowledge in the context of everyday situations.
B Applying mathematical techniques to solve problems
In questions which are set in context and/or which require a sequence of steps to solve, candidates should be able to:
10. make logical deductions from given mathematical data;
11. recognise patterns and structures in a variety of situations, and form generalisations;
12. respond to a problem relating to a relatively unstructured situation by translating it into an appropriately structured form;
13. analyse a problem, select a suitable strategy and apply an appropriate technique to obtain its solution;
14. apply combinations of mathematical skills and techniques in problem solving;
15. set out mathematical work, including the solution of problems, in a logical and clear form using appropriate symbols and terminology.
We have deliberately designed the course to make it as relevant to the demands of the specification as possible with lots of self-assessment exercises for you to carry out prior to you taking the End of Unit submissions. These are assignments which you will send them to your tutor and receive feedback on to improve your knowledge and skills in handling examination questions

Who is the awarding body?

What is the course title and code for this qualification?

IGCSE Mathematics (0580)

The course comes to you as a proper paper-based pack, not as an electronic password
You will get full tutor support via email
You will receive feedback on your assignments from our experienced tutors
You will be given guidance through the Study Guide on the nuts and bolts of studying and submitting assignments
Postal assignments cannot be accepted without prior permission from the tutor
You must have access to email in order to contact your tutor

The course contains a number of assignments which your tutor will mark and give you valuable feedback on. We call these Tutor Marked Assignments (TMAs). You need only send the TMAs to your tutor for comment, not the self-assessment exercises which are also part of the course to help you gauge your progress.

This course can be taken over a 12 month period but you can complete it as fast or as slowly as you wish.

You will have access to a tutor via email who will mark your work and guide you through the course and will assist you with any problems you may have. In addition you will be supplied with a comprehensive Study Guide which will help you through the study and assessment process.
