This course allows members to discover maths again.
Maths 1 works through the Edexcel Pure A Level Further Maths Books FP1, FP2 and FP3. We are almost at the end of the first Book and are about to start the second one. We have fun together learning and practising the topics in the Book.
The Group Convenor does some teaching and people then try questions from the Exercise. The Convenor always goes over the questions and Members discuss relevant things that come up.
The Group Convenor gives Members the chance to do some homework if they wish and he always emails his solutions to everyone. It is essential that any new Members wishing to join already has some familiarity with these textbooks and the maths they cover.
Members should speak to the Convenors for further advice about this. The Group Convenor taught maths at secondary school for 39 years and has a mathematics degree.
The group meets every second and fourth Thursday of the month in the mornings between 9.30 am and 11.30 am. Meetings are held in the Group Convenor's home. This Group is shared between members of Roding Valley and Epping Forest U3As.
The Group Convenor's contact details can be found in the Epping Forest U3A Prospectus.
