Designed for the new GCSE specification, this worksheet allows students to practise sketching circles and finding equations of tangents. For more resources and guidance for teaching new GCSE topics, see http://www.resourceaholic.com/p/new-gcse-support.html.
A mixed set of questions for Higher GCSE percentages practice/revision. Covers percentage change, reverse percentage problems and compound interest. Questions were drawn from a variety of sources.
This is a worksheet on perpendicular lines, with solutions included. It is intended for GCSE but might be useful in C1 too.
A couple of years ago I wrote a post about different approaches for solving more advanced ratio problems at Higher GCSE: https://www.resourceaholic.com/2017/12/ratio.html. I’ve now made a lesson to accompany this post. This was designed for a Year 11 double lesson, though it might need longer. It features two approaches: equivalent fractions with algebra, plus the scaling method. These are designed with AQA ratio GCSE questions in mind. The lesson includes a number of questions/activities that I did not create: sources are SSDDproblems.com, Don Steward, variationtheory.com and past exam questions. See the notes under each slide for full sources. I have provided a PDF version in case font/formatting is lost in PowerPoint, but the PowerPoint is better because it has animations and notes.
These resources are for mixed-topic non-calculator GCSE revision. There are four levels: Foundation is aimed at students working at Grades 1 - 3 Foundation Plus is aimed students working at Grades 3 - 5 Higher is aimed at students working at Grades 4 - 6 Higher Plus is aimed at students working at Grades 6 - 9. I printed onto two sheets of A3 (stapled) but they would work on A4 too. Answers are provided. Editable versions are provided in case you want to change some questions to suit the level of your students. I wrote the questions but the images are lifted from Google images (plus one is from Don Steward and another from CIMT). I have a similar set of calculator resources here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/gcse-calculator-revision-mats-higher-and-foundation-12119735 and here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/gcse-calculator-revision-mats-set-2-higher-and-foundation-12128297 Hope these are helpful.

A card sort activity for algebra basics. Sort the identities into two groups: true or false. Useful for assessing understanding and misconceptions.
Created for the new GCSE specification but also suitable for AS level and iGCSE, this activity requires students to identify errors in quadratic inequality solutions. It is designed to highlight and tackle common misconceptions. See resourceaholic.com for more ideas and resources for teaching this topic.
Designed for the new GCSE (AQA Higher), this worksheet is for practising equating coefficients in identities. Answers are provided, plus an editable version.
Two revision activities for Higher GCSE students (designed for students working at Grades 6 - 8). Students work through the questions on the sheet to revise facts and procedures for a range of topics. This is very ‘print budget friendly’, with a single side of A4 providing enough questions to fill a whole lesson (expect it to take around 45 minutes). There are two versions: calculator and non-calculator. The non-calculator version was written by @Adam_SmithMaths and tweaked by me. I wrote the calculator version. If you find any errors please let me know (@mathsjem). Foundation version here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/foundation-maths-gcse-revision-workout-12121781
These revision cards cover most C1 and C2 topics and can be used as an individual or class activity. Individuals can ask friends/relatives to test them using these cards. For use in class, hand out one laminated card per pupil. They circulate round the class, pairing up to ask and answer their questions, then swapping cards and pairing up with someone else. It's a nice active revision lesson. Please do let me know if I&'ve made any errors on these cards. C3, S1 and S2 cards are also available.
