The Knox Maths Department has a number of opportunities for your child to make sure they are well prepared for their National 5 and Higher Maths Exams. In addition to a number of revision sessions during lunchtime and after school (a timetable can be found on our Website), the RevisionHUB (www.knox.is/revisionhub) is our dedicated place for pupils to find practice on specific topics. It includes worksheets, answers, video tutorials and quizzes.

We have also decided to run, for the first time, revision sessions on a Friday after school from 1245 - 1415. The 5 sessions will be approximately six weeks apart and the dates and we ran a very successful first session recently based on three topic areas decided by pupils: "Arcs and Sectors", "Factorising" and "Statistics". There will be some photos added to the bottom of this page shortly.

In addition to the above, and in the interests of building in some relaxation time, we are taking the pupils who have attended to FoxLake near Dunbar. 

With regards to Higher, Candidates have this week been given letters to take home (click here to view) as we want to run another" Maths Camp".

For the last two years we have offered “Maths Camp” and we are hoping to run a similar weekend residential at Whithaugh Park which is nestled away in the Scottish Borders. Over the course of the weekend pupils would revise work that they have covered over the year with a focus on exam questions and techniques – tailored to suit the new Higher curriculum. Pupils will also be shown strategies for revising in order to achieve their best potential and develop problem solving skills. A range of outdoor activities will also be built into the programme.

Please get in touch if you would like any more information about what we offer.

This booklet (click here to download) is designed to help parents/carers and learners plan the academic year and be aware of the internal assessments and deadlines that lie ahead as part of their qualifications.

Most subjects are not able to be more specific that giving a month as it depends on the individual/class pace and progress through the course.

We hope you find this helpful.
