Revision Starter Tables GCSE Maths Higher Grade C & B Key Topics
A revision power point containing 14 revision tables targeting key grade C topics with some of the grade B topics that a grade C pupil can attempt. Topics include solving equations, four rules of fractions, standard form, graphs etc. Topics are repeated on some slides for extra practice. Twelve topics are revised per slide. On power point so you can adapt/amend as you need. I found that one table lasts as a starter for 2 lessons allowing for approx. 15 mins at start of each lesson.

Solar Eclipse Fact sheet
A few answered questions about the up and coming solar eclipse on Friday 20th march.<br />
<br />
All text and images have been put together by me. <br />
The images of the Sun, Earth and Moon are not to scale.<br />
The angle of tilt of the Moon's orbital path is drawn to illustrate the point not accurate to the real movement.<br />
The answers to the questions are my interpretations of fact learnt over the years and cannot therefore be sourced. I am a qualified Physics teacher with 17 years experience of teaching.

Algebra: Quadratic Graphs (2 whole lessons)
This is two whole lessons on teaching the various aspects of learning quadratic graphs. This is geared towards GCSE/IGCSE... that additional ALevel stuff has not been included in this version, however, I will be published a similiar version shortly that is geared specifically for an ALevel audience.
This is a substantial PowerPoint, with starters, links to video's I use, Questions, Learning objectives, key words, loads of examples etc...
I have also attached a further graph handout, which i normally print off for pupils, rather then get them to be constantly copying and exam questions, which I use for the activity. I have found most text books do NOT cater well for these questions are different from the style that is in the exams.
