Guroo is based in the North East of England.
Our mission is to provide a fantastic range of learning resources that students use for learning Functional Skills in mathematics, English and ICT at level 1 and level 2.
Guroo uses a mixture of on-line and off-line learning resources including videos to engage students in the learning tasks, podcasts which are great for revision, test questions to re-inforce learning and provide instant feedback and a great range of learning tasks with solutions and learning feedback, all based on real life themes.
At the heart of guroo are realistic, relevant and appropriate on-line learning materials that support 14-19 year old students in the three Functional Skills subjects. Our materials include:

This site offers an introduction to mathematics and its variety of topics. It’s not just for kids, it’s for everyone (even if you aren’t a number nut). If you’re still not sure what to click, try our site mapthat will show you all of the topics we cover. If you surf the site and get lost in all of the information, use the search function on the side of the pages.
OKAY! A new site has to start somewhere, let’s start here…
So you’re asking, what is MATH? Well… Here’s our best definition. Mathematics is the study of quantity, structure, and change. Do you think that’s a bit general? It was meant to be. Math is a part of everything in the universe.
You might be a farmer that needs to measure your land or count your crops. You might be a cook who needs to know how much food to buy. You might be a nuclear physicist that is studying the movements and activity of atoms. All of those jobs use math at one point or another. Math is just as important when you go to buy a burger, as it is to help plot the movement of planets.
Ideas and concepts in math are also universal because they are based in logic and deductive reasoning. Proofs, definitions, and theorems rule the actions of math whether you are from China, Great Britain, or another planet. The concept of “one” will always be “one” no matter what language you speak. Even computers speak math. They speak with a binary language (ones and zeroes). If this is all new to you, start with numbers and counting. You have to start somewhere.

Ordanance survey maps are now available online, for fee. This used to be a ‘paid’ service, but the government have now made data in relation to electoral and local authority boundaries, post code areas and digital mapping information available online for free.
Statistics now available in relation to the online maps could have a range of uses within curriculum. For example: Crime, Health and Education stats in relation to a specific place and over a period of time can be used for analysis and interpretation. This data could be used in Geography and Maths to suport a range of activities.

Worldometers is part of the Real Time Statistics Project, which is managed by an international team of developers, researchers, and volunteers with the goal of making world statistics available in a thought-provoking and time relevant format to a wide audience around the world. Chief project coordinator is currently Sir Thomasson.
Sources are carefully selected to include only data published by the most reputable organizations and statistical offices in the world.
The counters that display the real-time numbers are based on Worldometers’ algorithm that processes the latest and most accurate statistical data available together with its estimated progression to compute the current millisecond number to be displayed on each counter based on the specific time set on each visitor’s computer clock.
