A collection of videos revising topics on Unit 3 AQA Higher, then past paper questions on those revised topics and then full past paper solutions.
I created this to help a class who previously studied Foundation level and now are trying the higher paper. Explanations are simple and not in massive detail/rigor but sufficient for a student wanting to revise key ideas for their GCSE exams.
I pulled the following slide show together and delivered it to Year 9, 10 and 11s in assembly.
The topic was Numeracy and the importance of this in everyday life.
Starts by showing off how familiar students actually are with numbers and how many cultures have contributed to the wonderful history of numbers. The moving onto the great development with regards to counting that numbers allowed.
Then move on to their use e.g. jobs, school but finishing on using maths so you can't be made a fool of and make the correct decisions in your life.

The following is a basic booklet of FP2 OCR past paper questions (can apply to other boards) (Markscheme attached). It's simply a collection of past questions by topic. I find before giving past papers to students, a booklet like this is a great way to start revision by quick session recapping a topic and preparing a revision card and then attempting a few questions back to back on that topic. This has proved useful for me spotting common errors and areas needing some attention and for students to spot patterns in exam questions and key ideas.
Just the most fantastic site with settler activities, follow me games, bingos and revision notes. Whenever I do there I tend to find a bingo or game on the topic I am looking for. Thank you MathsBox.org
A self-contained game to be played in pairs.<br />
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.<br />
Differentiated versions of the game within this pack, including use of the first quadrant only, as well as all four quadrants. You will also find instructions on how to play the game within your pack. Suitable for Years 4 and 5 (on one quadrant) and Year 6 and KS3 (on all four quadrants).<br />
You will find a PDF version and editable Word version available for download; both are exactly the same, so download whichever is more convenient for you.
There are 4 sets of questions (Number, Algebra, Shape, Data) which are mainly A and A* (with some lower grade questions from topics which students struggle with, e.g. percentages, constructions). PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. Students work in pairs or small groups to answer the questions. When they finish a question they get it marked and if it is correct they are given cash to the value of the question. There are bank notes which you can put your school name and pictures of your teachers on. The team with the most money at the end could be given a prize.
Give each student a copy of the the Treasure Quest document, containing a set of 8 treasure quest coordinate questions the pupils have to solve. Also give them a copy of the island map, the treasure map document.
Display the excel application via an interactive white board. If a student has solve treasure quest 3, say, they come to the board select the appropriate work sheet, enter the coordinate and either the treasure will appear on the map at their coordinate, or they will receive a message telling them to try again.
