What is MathsGoGoGo?

MathsGoGoGo is an online Maths service providing worksheets, animated games and audio-visual lessons for Primary children. For GCSE students there is a superb revision guide with hundreds of GCSE questions, all with fully worked answers.


At the primary level MathsGoGoGo is for those parents who are serious about helping their children succeed with maths. If you are willing to spare a few minutes a day working with your children, then we can provide all the material that you could ever need.

It is not a set of lessons which you have to do in a particular order. Rather, it is an enormous bank of activities and help covering all aspects of maths: the same material that is currently used in over 15 000 schools across the UK. There is so much here that we very much doubt that any one child could possibly carry out all the activities and worksheets. Rather, we let you choose what is relevant at a particular time for your children from all the worksheets and animated activities on the site. So that you can gain a flavour of the site we have provided a small selection of our resources for you to try. The activities are organised into three types: worksheets, on-line activities and lessons.


For GCSE students it a site enabling you to get the very best grade you can by providing a huge selection questions, covering all the major topics, all with fully worked answers. This makes revision easy as you can see at a glance exactly how to overcome any problems you have. More than this, there are also an increasing number of audio visual lessons to guide you through the main topics.

How often can I use MathsGoGoGo?

A subscription allows you to access all the material as often as you like from any computer which has an internet connection, 24 hours a day. You will be given a login which you can use, together with your password, on any computer with an internet connection.

We appreciate that often families have more than one child and more than one computer and that two children may well want to use the site at the same time. That’s not a problem as we give you two simultaneous accesses for your single subscription.

What is different about the MathsGoGoGo GCSE material?

It is possible to revise from your textbook but there are two essential problems with this approach. Firstly, you will have covered most of the examples in class during the last year or two and you will not really want to go through them all again – you probably feel the need for some fresh material, similar to that you will meet in the examinations. Secondly, although the text books give you one or two fully worked examples for each topic in the introduction to each chapter, when you come to tackle the exercises you will soon find there is a big gap. The exercise gives you the questions and most of the answers are supplied at the back of the book, but where is the working now? If you are trying to revise at home and you cannot see how to get the answer, what can you do – phone a friend? This is where MathsGoGoGo comes in. We have given you as many examples as you are ever likely to need and for every question there is a fully worked answer. Using these you can check your working, see how to tackle a problem if you are stuck and pick up countless hints and tips which are provided throughout the worked answers. What better revision guide can you have than that?

Why are there now just two levels at GCSE?

Until recently there were three levels at GCSE Mathematics when all the other subjects had just two. Recently the Mathematics syllabuses were changed to bring them in line with the other subjects, so there are now just two levels – Higher and Foundation. This does not affect the grades you can obtain and your teacher will advise you of the level at which you should enter.

Which examining boards are covered by the MathsGoGoGo material?

The syllabuses used by the examining boards have slowly become closer over the years and you would have to search hard to find the small differences between them. They all contain the common topics such as Pythagoras’ Theorem, trigonometry, probability, statistics and algebra so the material we provide on the MathsGoGoGo site essentially covers the syllabuses released by all the GCSE examining boards. Following through our questions will give you the mathematical techniques and methods to tackle any syllabus with confidence.

We normally don't work through this many examples in our other subjects. Why do we need to do this in mathematics?

Learning mathematics is a different skill to learning, say, geography, history or French. In these subjects you normally need to learn many facts such as the functions and effects of rivers, dates of various events and the people associated with them or masses of vocabulary and other methods such as spider diagrams or writing essays will be more appropriate to these subjects. It is quite different with mathematics, however, because mathematics is about problem solving. In almost every question you are given some information such as an equation, some statistical facts or a diagram involving lines and angles, and you are expected to calculate or find particular answers that need to be worked from this information. It is a completely different process and it has been found over the years that the best way to revise is to tackle as many problems as possible. This method soon reveals any sticking points and with the MathsGoGoGo material you are able to check your answers and clear up any points of difficulty.

We have been recommended to buy other published guides for GCSE revision. Should I still purchase these?

If these have been recommended by your mathematics teacher then it would be a good idea to purchase them – we would never recommend going against the advice of your teachers as they are the people who know you well enough to be aware of your particular needs and they are always the people you should turn to in times of difficulty. Although it is possible to resit examinations, do you really want to be doing this? Isn’t it much better to get the grade you want first time around? If you agree, then follow your teachers’ advice.

However, most of these revision guides simply give you the topics in the syllabuses divided into small doses and are presented in wonderful colour. But they do not generally provide you with hundreds of examples with fully worked answers for every problem. That is why we created this MathsGoGoGo revision aid – to bridge that gap! We hope it helps you.
