Core Maths is ideal for students taking a wide range of Level 3 subjects such as business and economics, PE and sport, health and social care, design and technology, engineering, psychology, geography, sociology and science subjects. For more information on the OCR Core Maths qualification, visit OCR’s website.

Ruth Wroe, Maths Subject Adviser at OCR, asked the authors about the thinking behind this new book and how it will appeal to students and teachers alike. Below is an extract from Ruth’s blog:

Sophie Goldie“In Core Maths every topic has a real-life application so that students are able to see how they will be able to use the mathematics they are learning in their future careers. Every section of the book has a really engaging activity for students to think about and discuss, and these activities really set the tone of the book. The book relates maths to other subjects that a student may be studying such as geography, business studies or psychology. There are clear worked examples with callouts that provide extra support, and short exercises on each section so there are plenty of opportunities for students to practise their new skills.”

Roger Porkess: “I’ve always been committed to making maths accessible to people who need it in their other subjects, their everyday lives and in the workplace. The book is designed to motivate students who have little underlying interest in mathematics. It will encourage a way of thinking that sees applying maths to any situation as an entirely natural thing to do.”

Stella Dudzic: “For students studying independently… the book has been written so that students can work through it from start to finish to develop their understanding and skills. The sections relevant to each of the Core Maths papers are clearly indicated so students can use the book for revision as well as for initial learning. For teachers…there are lots of ways to use the book. There are activities throughout the book to introduce new concepts. Teachers may find these useful as lesson starters and there are also questions for students to test their understanding. Some teachers might use the activities to introduce new topics, others might want the questions to give their students practice.”

MEI has produced a teacher companion to this textbook, providing additional questions and worked solutions. Details of how to access this companion are available on the MEI website.’
