Edexcel – Exemplar Material

The Teaching and Learning Materials offer excellent support including answers and commentary on sample assessment materials and support for Statistics and Mechanics. These Teaching Guides are very thorough indeed, as Edexcel say for their Statistics guide, and similarly for Mechanics:

“This booklet looks at statistics content of AS and A level Mathematics qualifications and is intended to offer explanations of the terminology that is being used in specifications, guidance on how to approach the teaching of the content and help on where and how to use technology to support the delivery of the course. This document is designed to give teachers a starting point and does not include all possible approaches to topics discussed.”
