Interactive Spreadsheets for Foundation GCSE

Interactive Spreadsheets for Foundation GCSE

15 Excel Workbooks containing numerous spreadsheets to practice GCSE, including the popular 'Top Picks'. All multiple choice answers are generated using the answer and potential misconceptions. Note that your computer will need Microsoft Excel with Calculation Options set to 'Manual' and Macros enabled. There are set up sheets giving advice on how to do this. Excel's Zoom Bar can be used to scale the sheet up and down to fit on your monitor. Note that as the questions are randomised, some questions could be repeated. With a constant number of re-generated questions (and answers), students can practice to their heart's content. After all, practice makes perfect, and bought as a bundle you are saving 36%.

Cubic Sequence Extension Investigation

Cubic Sequence Extension Investigation

A short worksheet with a variety of cubic sequences. The aim is to get students to look at and investigate the difference between terms in the n^3, 2n^3 and 3n^3 sequences. (Divide 3rd difference by 6) Once they have done this, there are some challenging sequence questions for them to complete. (Answers included on a powerpoint) Many thanks for the questions which were taken from resources created by dr185 and rpwelch32

Number: Number Pattern Investigations (8 different ones)

Number: Number Pattern Investigations (8 different ones)

This is 8 different number pattern investigations to do with KS3 pupils. This could lead to into lessons on sequences, powers and various other areas of mathematics. This is particularly good at helping to build functional and investigation skills that are so necessary for pupils to do well at the new 9-1 GCSE specification. NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thank you.

Colour by sequences with extension

Colour by sequences with extension

As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising finding the nth term. The sequences are written in the form an + b . Students use one colour when a=2, a second colour when a=3 and a third colour when a=4. I also get the students to write the full solutions in the boxes. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires three different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. Two solutions do not fit the pattern and students are encouraged to find their own questions that will fit the pattern allowing for stretch and challenge. The solution is the pattern displayed. The white spaces are where students are required to find solutions that do fit the pattern. All feedback gratefully accepted.

The solution is the pattern displayed. All feedback gratefully accepted. The sequences are written in the form an + b . Use three colours. Use one colour when a=2, a second colour when a=3 and a third colour when a=4.

Practice for Sequences and Inequalities Interactive Spreadsheet

Practice for Sequences and Inequalities Interactive Spreadsheet

An Excel Workbook containing three spreadsheets to practice the GCSE skills of identifying sequences, nth term and solving inequalities. All sheets have an associated answer sheet going through each question. The questions have multiple choice answers, generated using the answer and potential misconceptions. If the correct letter is given it turns the answer box green, or red if incorrect. Note that your computer will need Microsoft Excel with Calculation Options set to 'Manual' and Macros enabled. There is a set up sheet which gives some advice on how to do this. Clicking the 'More Questions' black square will clear the sheet and recalculate questions and answers. Excel's Zoom Bar can be used to scale the sheet up and down to fit on your monitor. Note that as the questions are randomised, some questions could be repeated. With a constant number of re-generated questions (and answers), students can practice this to their heart's content. After all, practice makes perfect!

Fun revision activities for GCSE Maths

Fun revision activities for GCSE Maths

Two sets of 12 cards for students to cut up, solve and then place cards in ascending/descending order of solutions. A multiple choice activity - where each answer gives a letter. The full set of letters can be rearranged to spell the name of a band, and finally a cross number all covering multiple topics Just a slightly different way to get students to look at revision. A range of grades to allow access for all from beginning.

Fun revision activity for GCSE maths 2

Fun revision activity for GCSE maths 2

12 cards for students to cut up, solve and then place cards in descending order of solutions. Just a slightly different way to get students to look at revision. A range of grades to allow access for all from beginning. When I use this with my class, I get students to work in pairs. I also give them paper to stick the cards on once order is complete and get them to write their working around the outside. I have found students to be much more engaged than if they were just given a page of questions. The 12 included topics are: proportion, simplifying surds, trigonometry, cosine rule, substitution, LCM, percentage profit, sequences, quadratic formula, circle theorems, mean of grouped data and reverse percentages.
