Firm Foundations for Matric Maths is an online course tailored specifically to the needs of Grade 12 students who:
- Are not satisfied with their current Maths marks, especially those aiming for (but not yet achieving) 50s or 60s.
- Have gaps in their knowledge from Grade 11, resulting in them feeling left behind when new Grade 12 content is taught.
- Lack confidence in their ability to recall and apply the correct formulae and methods when it matters most, in tests and examinations.
The reality is that Matric is an exceptionally busy year! The sheer volume of work covered in Mathematics and the pace at which teachers need to work through the syllabus, can be overwhelming for students. Add to this the fact that Grade 12 concepts build directly on what was taught in Grade 11. This means that students need to find time to go over their Grade 11 notes, source resources (because in many cases, textbooks get returned to the school at the end of Grade 11), and attend extra support sessions at school and/or with tutors.
Tammy Sales, an experienced Mathematics teacher, has designed this online course to address these very real challenges that Matric students face. The course consists of a series of videos covering foundational Grade 11 concepts in an easy-to-understand, to-the-point and non-threatening way. The videos are designed to be watched before the respective Grade 12 sections are taught in class. They also serve as a revision tool before tests and examinations.
