Edit: One of the problems with you learning maths at a serious level is that you often stop suddenly.

You will probably find that you forget quite a lot of what you learn if you stop for a long time.

I recommend that you re-read post 1853 and attempt the exercise and also attempt the exercise

further down this page. You are welcome to return and do some more maths on this thread.

Regarding the daily diary idea that you had, there is no need to make it every day,

but perhaps every so often you should give us a bit of feedback including what you are stuck on,

your attempt to any exercises that we have set, and any thoughts on how easy

or difficult you are finding the exercises.

You can also start off a discussion which might lead to you getting a better understanding

of the maths that you are trying to do.

I could continue to give you exercises on various topics and discuss any areas where you are having difficulty.

A few thoughts on what topics to do are:

(1) Finish off graphs and point plotting

(2) Do some work on arithmetic involving negative numbers

(3) Powers and indices (squares, cubes, 4th powers etc)

(4) Approximations and rounding

(5) Prime numbers, factors and fractions

Obviously there are many other topics that you would have to do for GCSE maths.
