GCSE Maths 9-1 Specification Direct and Inverse Proportion

At York Private Tutors we cover the GCSE Maths 9-1 syllabus in detail to highlight areas that students are struggling with and where to find the best resources. This week we are reviewing direct and inverse proportionality, a staple topic within the old and new GCSE Maths syllabus. However since the new syllabus was introduced back in 2015 we have seen proportionality questions take a bit of a twist in the sense that they now involve a wide range of different contexts and question styles which students have to overcome in order to answer the questions correctly. In order to get better at any GCSE Maths topic plenty of practice is always advisable and proportionality is no different in this regard. To get the best direct and inverse proportionality revision questions Maths Made Easy has everything your child will require. From questions such as ‘y is inversely proportional to the square of x’ to more contextualised questions where you have to figure out the variables. Proportionality is another GCSE Maths topic which requires strong algebra skills including the ability to rearrange and substitute in values confidently. If after practising proportionality questions or any GCSE Maths topic, your child is struggling to understand certain question types then a private tutor can be an excellent solution. All of our GCSE Maths tutors in York are DBS checked, qualified, experienced and have exceptional results year after year.
