crashMaths Skills Checks

crashMaths has been added to the 16+ series of pages. The growing library of resources now includes a set of very useful Skills Checks, with solutions, on Pure content from Year 1 of the A level specification. The site includes many practice papers and mark schemes.

With all A Level courses now linear, Retrieval Practice is essential. From crashMaths these AS Maths Key Skills Check worksheets will be very valuable for Year 13 in the second year of their A Level course. The Skills Checks are all on Pure Mathematics.

 

Further recent updates to Advanced Level resources include:

From Edexcel, A Guide to using GeoGebra when teaching AS and A Level Mathematics. This guide links to numerous GeoGebra files clearly mapped to the specification content.
