Core Maths is a one year course which can be taken alongside a programme of 3 main subjects (A Level or equivalent). It focuses on maths in a real world context. Topics include financial calculations such as Income Tax, National Insurance, Mortgages, Loans and Inflation, and statistical methods such as the Normal Distribution, Confidence Intervals, Correlation and Regression. There is a strong focus on analysing data and determining whether a statement can be backed up by statistics, which is becoming increasingly important in the current climate of “fake news”
The qualification gained is a Level 3 Certificate in Mathematical Studies, worth the equivalent of half an A Level in UCAS points
This enrichment takes place over 1 year and you will have 2 sessions per week.
This is a free enrichment.

My experience at Wyke has been an overwhelming success. I thought that moving from a small school to a larger college would be a daunting experience yet it wasn’t at all. Everyone is so friendly and approachable. Flyers has provided me with so many useful skills and experiences which I will never forget.
The independence and opportunity to meet new people was why I chose to study my A Levels at the College. I enjoyed being able to complete an EPQ as it allowed me to research and write about a topic I found interesting.
I knew Wyke was the College I wanted to study at because I felt it had a much more mature and relaxed environment than other colleges. I knew I wanted to study Human, Social and Political Sciences at university and my teachers and Flyers mentor offered me additional support sessions to further develop my knowledge in these areas.
I was attracted to studying at Wyke because it offered me with many opportunities that would allow me to progress into Higher Education. Being a Flyer I have gained invaluable skills, experiences and support with my personal statement for university.
