#### GCSE Problem Solving Questions of the Day - 29th April

Every day in the run up to the GCSE exams we are intending to put up two GCSE problems of the day on Twitter. Here are the files you can use in the classroom. For each problem there are some variations that you might want to use instead or in addition.<br />
<br />
The first two problems are suitable for foundation and higher and the second are suitable for higher.<br />
<br />
The first problems can focus on percentages and the second problem students will need to form an equation.<br />
<br />
The second problems involve forming a simultaneous equation and equating two fractional expressions.<br />
<br />
We hope you enjoy using them. Please tweet your student solutions to @WRMathsHub for a chance to win a prize<br />

#### Quadratic Graph Transformations

This resources allows some work on transformations of quadratic graphs. It can be used as working out the graph using the values of a, b and c or it can be used to promote the use of completing the square; both methods are shown in the fliphcart meaning you can use whichever you want to based on the desired outcome of your lesson.
