ABOUT THIS WEBINAR

With up to 23% of questions focussing on Geometry and Measure in the exam, a good mastery of the more challenging areas is vital if students are going to achieve grades 7 to 9. This webinar will focus on how to systematically work your way through specific Geometry and Measure questions.  The key focus being a systematic mathematical approach to circle proofs.
