Week 1 – The (general) elephant in the room (Algebra 1)
It's the topic everyone struggles on so let’s start here.
Building on the key idea from last week  the rules do not change for algebra. You still do all the same stuff as with number. Letters just allow us to access the power of generality!
Cover the fundamentals which once mastered make Maths so much easier. Lot's of higher topics rely on foundations.

Week 3 – The study of chance (Probability 1)
We can use probability to model and plan / predict the world. In this module we will see how probability has saved countless businesses, events and lives! If something may happen, it has a probability and this numerical value is much more helpful than saying "there's a chance".
In this module we will see why. There is two types experimental and theoretical. Notice how we are deftly covering decimals, fractions and percentages in action  so if we need to brush up we will do here too.

Week 4 – Where it all began (Number 1)
You wouldn't learn to spell by just spell tests. It's much more fun to read. That's what we have been doing so far (Maths style). You have been doing fractions, percentages and decimals lots so far  shock horror! In this module we cover number more directly. We build a mental picture of what certain units are to really understand the size of the universe. We learn about standard form and how to use our calculator!

Key ideas

Week 7 – Simplifying big data sets (Statistics 1)
People and politicians are trying to trick you all the time. Can you catch them out or join them ;) ?! Stats simplify crazy large data sets that nobody could possible pour through. In this module, we learn how to be savvy and what "good" looks like. We set standards before we believe just any old thing!

Week 8 – The most important shape ever (Geometry 1)
All GPS and modern phones use this shape. We navigated the whole sea using them. Every other shape 2d or 3d (even 4d!) can be mapped using them. All the computer games and animations you have ever seen uses these great shapes. Needless to say, there's a reason why we need to look at triangles closely.
