Maths currently is that interesting content wise and we are just about to finish Core 2, the last core module in the course. However; we are doing a lot of revision and past papers so I’ll go through what we need to know as a class and talk you through the content as the year goes on bit by bit.

The Paper

At the moments as a class, we have Statistics 1, one of the 3 modules we must do in year 12, as we have finished the course. In the paper, we had parts on every module in this course this included:

  • Numerical measure: Mean, Interquartile Range and Mode
  • Probability: The one I’m not that great at (I Think)
  • Binomial Distribution: Mostly probability using a cool bell curve and tree diagrams
  • Normal Distribution: Some more bell curves to talk about data
  • Confidence Intervals: Bell curves again but talking about the mean more than anything
  • Correlation and Regression: Lines of best fit and all that jazz

Hey, my name is Daisy. I am in year 12 and I study chemistry, biology, and maths at A level.

I will show you pictures of experiments that we have done to show you that chemistry isn’t just about learning from text books but also learning practically in a stimulating environment.

The lessons can be challenging but they are guaranteed to be fascinating if you desire to learn about the elements that all matter is made from.

Media Studies: Lea White

Hello, my name is Lea White, I’m 17, and I study English literature, Media and Geography. I’ll be writing the blogs section on media; I chose to do this because media is a very good subject to study, in my opinion, it gives you an overview of how people are represented and why people see them this way. if you enjoy learning about feminism, sexism, racism, and stereotypes, then media is perfect for you. You get to study a wide range of media texts, such as movies, music videos, newspaper articles, CD covers, magazine covers, documentaries etc. I enjoy media mostly because I like to learn about the changes in discrimination and the things that have stayed the same in this area, I also like to analyse media text as they can be fun and interesting to watch or read, and it gives me knowledge I can take outside of my lesson.
