Citizen Maths - Powerful Ideas in Action (Calderdale College)
Citizen Maths is for people who want to improve their grasp of maths, and become more confident in using maths at work and in life. Maths may have passed you by at school. Or you may be rusty. Maybe you’ve passed maths exams but find it hard to apply what you know to the types of problem you need to solve now. Problems like using spreadsheets, judging amounts or assessing odds. If so, then Citizen Maths may be for you.

The course is at 'Level 2' — the level that a 16-year-old school leaver is expected to achieve in maths.

The course is based on solving the kinds of problems that come up at work and in life. And it is free. All you need is access to a computer, the internet and a basic grasp of maths.

Citizen Maths is a free online course. It helps you learn maths in a new way. Instead of abstract routines, the course uses practical problems to help you grasp some “powerful ideas” in maths. You can then apply these in work and in life. The course covers five such ideas:

- Proportion

- Uncertainty

- Representation

- Pattern

- Measurement

Each takes between five and 10 hours to complete. You can spread this over a few weeks or a few days




The course will allow you to:

- Fit your learning around other things in your life

- Work at your own pace

- Re-do any parts you want, as often as you want

- Focus on the maths areas that you want
