# course 1

This first course is on some techniques of Pure Maths, expanding on some of the algebraic skills you've developed in your GCSE work and thinking carefully about the graphs of functions. These are essential skills for A Level study and will stand you in good stead as you embark on the sixth form maths courses. The last session is on problem solving; a crucial skill in maths is being able to think flexibly about problems when things aren't immediately obvious and to relate unfamiliar problems to familiar ones.
