English Speaking countries do not do well in Pisa rankings. The Copeman Academy strives to give the English speaking student a boost in Maths education. We do this by supplementing analytical training with Deep Learning based Pattern Recognition. We cover South Africa, UK, USA, Canada, Australia.

South Africa is ranked 138 out of 140 countries at Maths education. What is less known is that South Africa is one of the most unequal Maths societies in the world. Our top 1 % of students rank as good as the Asians (not rigourously proven, people get a bit prickly about admitting the advantages of privileged students). One of the reasons for this success is that thanks to the IEB, we have one of the best developed Advanced Maths Programs. A student following Core Maths and APMaths in South Africa comes out ahead of GED and AS Level students in the US and UK respectively.

AP Maths is an innovative exam offered by the IEB. Every serious Grade 12 student should take AP Maths. This is because it is an opening link to A Level Maths and University Maths 1 and 2.

Here is a list of topics covered.

Here is an example of an exam (Paper 1). Work your way through these questions with Video answers to establish how good you are. If you are heading for University then APMATHS will never be a waste of your time and will improve your core maths.

Great option comming - Stats, Financial Models, Graph theory and Matrices.

**South Africa**

If you are in grade 11 or grade 12 find out from your school what are your options to doing AP Maths. Either way doing APMaths now will save you doing these topics later. The assessment has been benchmarked by UK Naric (National Academic Recognition Information Centre), the UK equivalent of the SA Qualifications Authority, and is considered equivalent to the UK A-levels.

**UK/Cambridge International**

If you are a UK A-Levels student then APMaths coincides 90% with your A-Level Core and Further Maths Syllabi.

These are all core concepts to A-Levels Maths and A-Levels Further Maths.

**US GED**

GDE students Have 4 modules Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry and Precalculus. AP Maths and Greade 12 Core Maths cover around 90% of your topics and introduce about 10% of topics not required (Noteably financial mathematics)

will shortly recocile these differences. I would recommend AP Maths for GDE students, because it will prepare you for the inevitable confrintation of College Maths.

**Adults**

There is a basic cannon of maths, Geometery, Trig, Algebra, Calculus and everyone needs an introduction to Mechanics, Stats and Applied Maths. Adults have the luxury of not having to follow a rigourous syllabus. AP Maths is a gentle introduction to teriary Maths if you have High school maths waxed.
