With Exams fast approaching we want to help make sure that you are aware of the Supported Study the Mathematics Department offers.

In addition to lunchtime and after-school opportunities Monday to Thursday we are offering some Friday afternoon sessions starting from 1230. National 5 and Higher groups will participate in separate workshop Masterclasses we've specifically chosen based on Curriculum Quiz/ Prelim results and also our knowledge of the Exam. All are welcome to attend!

Click here to view the timetable of topic specific sessions.

We also have an 'open door' policy so please do come and ask us questions about anything you are unsure about! You may also find our 'How To Study Maths' leaflet useful.

TOP TIP - do not read notes... you need to do maths. Our RevisionHUB is a good place to start (video tutorials, 4 question challenges, etc.) and we'd highly recommend using the DLB Maths Past Paper resource to support thinking through problems.
