Comfortable editing an Excel spreadsheet but not webcode? Then this 1000 question, GCSE Maths multi choice quiz (see video) covering 50 topics across the whole syllabus is for you. It is interactive – enter a click-choice or a,b, or c or a number for an immediate correct/try again colour coded answer. And it is quite easy to add more questions if you like. Each quiz will take about 15 minutes and can be solo or supervised to discuss issues arising…
Generally the questions start easy and often follow a local path or story to lead you towards mastery of the topic. The mental arithmetic is fairly easy so it’s the topic itself you are judging. Sometimes the correctness of the process step as well as the answer is tested. The approach to checking is also examined
My approach after 100’s of hours of using and fine tuning these quizzes with pupils is to combine business IT-like professionalism with laser-like 100% Maths syllabus compatibility, yet build into the Maths some unusual material such as sport, pop music and popular films.
So the speed-time graph used is actually Usain Bolt’s world record 9.58 second sprint; the Area topic asks for the area of the Sergeant Pepper CD box and also the actual CD material. The statistical section features several real case studies – Wimbledon, the India-England Test series, the soccer World Cup – through the lens of GCSE style graphs and averages. There are also a couple of worksheets – for Compound Interest and Averages – where you enter any input and see a calculation of the result; ideal for experimenting and creating more questions.
