Lesson on Maths skills needed for the new Combined Science GCSE (9-1) with a focus on Biology content, although many of the skills are needed across all three Sciences.
The lesson is intended to be a circus activity with all of the topics around the room (information sheet and exam question sheet for each that I printed back to back) for students to move around between and then mark at the end of the lesson. It could easily be done as a teacher lead lesson as well though and even slotted into other lessons as needed.
The maths skills included are:
Calculating the Mean
Mode & Median
Calculating Percentage Changes
Ratios & Fractions
Cardiac Output Equation
Estimating Population Size Equation
There is an information sheet and exam question sheet for each, as well as answers to all the questions.
This workbook has detailed solutions and is great for learning about transformations. The different transformations are covered one at a time and then there are exam-type questions at the end.

I have used this booklet extremely effectively with students from Y8 up to Y11. Using this resource, my students have shown a better understanding of transformations than students in parallel classes that have worked through a text book.<hr>
Note that the booklet is designed to be printed as A4, but I usually reduce it to A5 and it still does the job.<hr>👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.
