I wrote recently on Revision Time 2017, noting several updates as well as checks of the revision series of pages. In this post – some more additions:
For GCSE, from Steve Blades on his excellent m4ths.com, have a look at his Right or Wrong Challenge, a series of 10 quick questions for Foundation GCSE students. Steve Blades has designed and written this section to test students understanding of the concepts involved in GCSE topics. Watch the video as Steve works through 10 questions and work out which answers are correct. It strikes me that many of these questions would make an excellent revision resource for younger year groups too – a great starter for my Year 9s I think! Note that Steve has very helpfully provided a pdf document with all the questions, (scroll to the bottom of the page).
I have mentioned reources from m4ths.com elsewhere, on the exam questons and solutions page I have included Steve’s eBook GCSE Higher wordy questions. On the GCSE page Steve has a section (near the end of the page) of eBooks, and one of those is on GCSE Higher wordy questions. See also Steve’s Think like a problem solver and mathematician book. And of course don’t forget his GCSE Help Book, included here for students.
On Danielle Moosajee’s piximaths.co.uk you will find an extensive collection of outstanding resources for teaching and learning and revision. The Revision Resources are very clear and comprehensive revision booklets, packed with things to remember and examination questions by topic, answers are also provided. Five booklets are available for students aiming at grades 1, 3. 5, 7 and 9.
PixiMaths Problem Solving
Also from PixiMaths resources I really like the set of Problem Solving Booklets by curriculum area, all with very clear fully worked answers. Danielle has created these using collated Edexcel questions that will be on both higher and foundation tiers so can be accessed by most students. Like the first resources from Steve Blades mentioned above I think there are many useful questions here for younger year groups. We should clearly be looking at problem solving skills with all our students.
From Danielle Bartram, on Miss B’s Resources see her GCSE Maths Passports Grades 1 to 9 Revision. Five different passports are available.
For A Level I have two pages in the Revision series, MadASMaths with it’s excellent series of revision questions and solutions increasing in challenge and UK A Level (16-18) Exam Quesions and Solutions with resources good for all examination boards.
From Underground Maths, to challenge students I find the Review Questions excellent, so many excellent questions from old A Level papers clearly organised and with very full solutons.
Calculus meets Functions
From the Underground Maths team have a look at the Bundle Tying it together, which looks at effective mathematics revision. To quote Underground Mathematics “The resources in this bundle encourage students to bring together their experiences in multiple areas of mathematics, helping to reveal and reinforce connections between a variety of mathematical ideas and problem solving strategies.” Note the associated recorded webinar. I particularly like the fluency exercise Pick a Card which will be a great way to revise Quadratic Functions, linking together many student experiences in Algebra, functions and graphs; this is also useful for high ability students. What’s the shared area for these two circles? another resource in this bundle illustrates so well how a good diagram can help.
