Tute’s team of experienced teachers have planned our lessons to work alongside what students are studying in school; to enable catch-up, to consolidate something that was difficult to master in class or to help revise for exams. To make is easy to choose lessons for different subjects, year groups and levels, we have organised lessons into topics that are fully aligned with the National Curriculum ensuring a comprehensive coverage of the curriculum that makes sense!
All you need to do is select the topic and then the level you feel is appropriate and you will find a list of suitable lessons that you can book for just £12 inc. VAT
Fractions and percentages
This module will concentrate on calculating with fractions and percentages. We will start by adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions, before moving on to finding the percentage of a quantity with and without a calculator, and concluding with solving problems involving growth and decay.
Adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators
Multiplying and dividing fractions
Calculating fractions of a whole numbers
Calculating the percentage of an amount without a calculator
Calculating a percentage and percentage change with a calculator
Calculating compound interest and solving growth and decay problems
Angles and right angles
This module will primarily be focusing on Pythagoras and trigonometric problems starting with basic diagrams before moving on to questions involving bearings and angles of elevation. The other lessons will focus on drawing bearings and calculating interior and exterior angles in polygons.
Using Pythagoras’ theorem to decide if a triangle is right-angled
Solving real-world problems involving Pythagoras’ theorem
Trigonometry: - labelling triangles correctly and finding missing lengths
Trigonometry – finding missing angles and solving problems
Drawing, measuring and calculating bearings
Finding the interior or exterior angle of a regular polygon
Equations, expressions and sequences
During this topic we will be looking at equations, expressions and sequences. We will start with simplifying expressions by collecting like terms, before moving onto more complicated aspects of expressions such as expanding and factorising, including basic quadratics. Following on from expressions we will look at solving two step equations before solving simultaneous equations by elimination and substitution. The final lesson of the topic will be sequences and, more specifically, finding the nth term of a linear sequence.
Simplifying expressions with one and two terms
Expanding and simplifying expressions involving single brackets
Factorising linear and basic quadratic expressions
Creating and solving equations
Solving simultaneous equations
Naming special sequences and finding the nth term of a sequence
This topic will focus on perimeter, area and volume. The first lessons will look at the area of basic and compound shapes before moving on to calculating the surface area of a 3D shape. During this module we will also apply the knowledge of the previous lessons to find the volume of a prism. The final lessons will be based around similarity, congruence and enlargement. In these lessons the students will learn how to identify congruent triangles as well as finding missing lengths of similar shapes. The enlargement lesson will primarily focus on the ray method which most students find challenging.
Calculating the area of compound shapes.
Finding the area and circumference of a circle
Calculating the surface area of 3D shapes
Volume of cuboids and prisms
Describing similarity and congruence
Using the ray method to enlarge shapes
Continuous data and advanced probability
This topic will be split into two parts, continuous data and probability. We will start with calculating averages from tables, which will include the mean and median, before moving on to seeing how we can display continuous data in frequency diagrams, frequency polygons and scatter graphs. During the scatter graphs lesson we will also be covering how to draw the line of best fit as well as drawing conclusions and making predictions. The second part will take in probability, more specifically theoretical probability and relative frequency. The topic will conclude with lessons on calculating probabilities using tree diagrams as well as Venn diagrams.
Calculating averages from grouped data and tables
Displaying continuous data
Relative frequency and experimental probability.
Using tree diagrams for compound probabilities
Indices, rounding and ratio
This topic will focus on some of the skills needed throughout the maths GCSE. We will start with applying prime index form to find the highest common factor and lowest common multiple of two numbers. Following on from this we will look at rounding and estimating before covering ratio in depth. The final lessons will involve some power work, specifically index laws and standard form.
Prime index form
Finding HCF and LCM using factor trees
Rounding to decimal places, significant figures and estimation
Simplifying, and sharing in a ratio
Index laws including negative and fractional powers
Changing to and from standard form and calculating in standard form
