Erica's Errors - A Level (Year 2) Bundle

Erica's Errors - A Level (Year 2) Bundle

Erica is struggling with many aspects of the A level mathematics course and needs help from your students. What you have here is 17of her homeworks, each with mistakes in solutions which your students need to find, correct and explain where Erica has gone wrong. These are purely designed to generate discussion and to allow students to demonstrate their understanding, whilst also allowing them to show their own methods of silving problems. These are all based upon the new A level curriculum.

Erica's Errors On Parametric Equations

Erica's Errors On Parametric Equations

Erica's having a complete stinker with this particularly long homework. She desperately needs help from your students to correct the homework and explain what she needs to do. This is designed for students to demonstrate understanding.

Can you crack the code? Further maths revision challenge - perfect for new spec problem solving

Can you crack the code? Further maths revision challenge - perfect for new spec problem solving

For these lessons, I have a wooden box which I fill full of goodies (fruits, sweets etc). I then have a large metal chain wrapped around the box with a colourful padlock on (all of which builds the tension...). The aim is for the students to work away in pairs to crack the code! If you don't want to purchase the box etc, the worksheet works perfectly well on it's own. Note: the solution for this worksheet is 6452. This worksheet is a real challenge for your KS5 students - perfect for the new A Level demands.

Parametric's : Tangents & Normals

Parametric's : Tangents & Normals

This lesson draws together two earlier lessons. One on Tangents and normals to a curve. The second on Parametric Differentiation. The lesson consists of a few worked examples.

A level maths revision, C4 integration, volumes of revolution

A level maths revision, C4 integration, volumes of revolution

Four challenging exam-like questions with fully worked out solutions for A level and IB students who want to test their knowledge of volumes of revolution (C4 Integration). In each question, a solid of revolution has to be subtracted from or added to the integral. The curve in one question is described by parametric equations. Another question uses trigonometric functions. The problem of finding the radius and height of cone/cylinder, is addressed in the solutions.

QR Code Defuse The Bomb Activities - Core 3 and 4

QR Code Defuse The Bomb Activities - Core 3 and 4

I use these as a break from the "past paper drudgery" in the run up to exams. The questions are taken from past papers (amended in some cases). The idea is to answer each question fully then scan the QR code linked to the correct answer to form a code. Each QR code (correct or incorrect to avoid "cheating") scans to a song or artist that contains a number or colour, so this generates the code.
