Searching for questions – part 1

I thought it would be useful to put together a simple list of sites where you can easily find resources by topic.

For just the links in this series of posts, see this page which provides a useful list of great sites to search for resources by topic.

I want some questions on Sequences for Year 10 so I’ll use Sequences as an example.

Sequences Index Diagnostic QuestionsOn Diagnostic Questions, we can search all the Maths Questions. Under Algebra we will find Sequences. The questions are helpfully categorised as shown. For the links here to work, sign in to Diagnostic Questions

We can also use the excellent Quiz collections, do explore the variety available for all ages. The collections from the exam boards are so useful, for AQA, OCR and Pearson Edexcel, Higher and Foundation quizzes for Years 9, 10 and 11 are available. The UKMT collection includes themed topics at Junior, Intermediate and Senior level.

It is also possible to search all the Maths quizzes which have been created. As before, under Algebra we can find the Sequences quizzes.

The list of sites easily searchable for resources by topic can be found on this page and this will be added to in the next few days.
