Description
Founded by two recent Cambridge graduates, Westbound Maths has been running inperson training for students based in North London since 2018, and now we are online! Our courses are designed for Exam Preparation and Grade Improvement with proven results 88% of our past students improved their final grades by at least one band from predicted grades!
What Complete ALevel Maths: Mechanics Course in 5 Lectures teach:
The Westbound Maths Complete ALevel Applied Maths: Mechanics Course covers the entire ALevel applied Maths: mechanics syllabus which represents 1/6 of the final exam weight for ALevel Mathematics qualification. The course consists of 5 lectures with over 4.5 hours of class videos, accompanying exam styled homework and detailed mark scheme for the following topics:
 Forces: Newton’s three laws of motion, how to draw a force diagram showing weight, friction, normal reaction, tension, thrust/compression etc.
 Moments: how to measure the turning effect forces have on an object.
 Vectors: understand that vector quantities have both magnitude and direction, and its application.
 Kinematics part I: constant acceleration kinematics and suvat formula, projectile which is an application of constant acceleration kinematics.
 Kinematics part II: variable acceleration kinematics, displacementtime graph, velocitytime graph.
How to fully utilise the course materials:
 Class video: we always start with the key concepts and definition within a topic, and then jump straight into a past exam question (sourced across major exam boards) to see how these concepts are tested and applied, then you will be given an examstyled classroom exercise for practice followed by a detailed stepbystep guide on how to solve it.
 Handouts: every lecture is accompanied with a handout that summarises key concepts covered, exam styled question solving examples, and classroom exercise solutions.
 Homework with examstyled questions: for each lecture, the homework contains examstyled questions which should be completed under exam conditions to help students identify any knowledge gap.
 Mistake Diagnosis : use the detailed sample solution to diagnose any mistake in homework which is the key to grade improvement.
Who this course is for:
 Year 13/ALevel students who want to improve grades and revise for exmas
 Year 12/AS Level students who want to challenge themselves and study Year 13 content ahead
 GCSE students who want to challenge themselves and study ALevel content ahead
 Further Maths students who want a consolidated recap of Mathematics subjects
