Taster lessons to give you a flavour of studying maths beyond GCSE

On this page you will find six taster lessons. The lessons provide an opportunity for you to try out some of the topics you will meet on a level 3 maths course, and will help you to get a feel for the type of maths that each level 3 maths qualification involves.

There are two lessons for each qualification: A level Mathematics, A level Further Mathematics, and Core Maths. Each lesson has a short introductory video followed by an interactive Desmos activity that you can complete at home or in school.

Hopefully you will find these lessons interesting and fun, as well as noticing that they build on and extend areas of maths that you are already familiar with. You can try out as many of the lessons as you like in order to help you decide which course is right for you to study after your GCSEs.
