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

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.

GCSE Mathematics Foundation revision  ppts

GCSE Mathematics Foundation revision ppts

11 ppt starters. Each contains between 4 and 5 questions around grade 4 of the new 1-9 GCSE. Topics include: expanding brackets, multiplying with decimals, angles in parallel lines, area and circumference of a circle, nth term, Pythagoras' theorem, indices with algebra, mean of grouped data, volume, products of prime factors, reciprocals, solving inequalities, highest common factor (HCF) least common multiple (LCM), substitution, percentage reduction and calculating with indices. All topics come up at least twice to allow for simmering. The cover picture shows the first slide of starter 1. All ppts contain solutions (worked solutions where appropriate). Hope this saves you some valuable time! All feedback greatly received.

Name the band - foundation maths revision

Name the band - foundation maths revision

A multiple choice worksheet to revise foundation topics that include: collecting like terms, expanding double brackets, finding the area of a triangle, nth term, metric units, types of number, angles in a triangle, expanding single brackets, shapes and angles in parallel lines. Students solve questions which gives them a letter. Once they have all the lettered solutions, they rearrange them to find the name of a band. Solution is Maroon 5

Investigating Infinite Series

Investigating Infinite Series

This worksheet leads the students through an investigation into infinite series and their sums. A great starting point for a discussion about the concept of infinity or extension to work on the topic of sequences.
