Great but a short instruction manual with it would be helpful to those less IT literate. I did have to have a play first.

This is some of the key words or concepts from KS3 Mathematics set up as keyword sheets. These have been broken down into topics. Although not an exhaustive list - they are a basis to build on.
Based on a design by MrMorton Science.

#### Pointless maths

This is similar to how to be a millionaire ...<br />
If you dont know how this game works its like you just pick any maths topic on there like algebra , handling data and like 20 more and then you answer questions and the lower the score the closer you are to winning )))<br />
And who ever gets 0 is the pointless winner.<br />
Really nice and interesting game for any age<br />

#### Calculator Skills Questions for GCSE Calculator Paper Revision

I have put together these sets of questions for students to practise their calculator skills ahead of the GCSE Calculator Paper. The questions involve students typing in a calculation into their calculators, writing down all the digits on their calculator display and then rounding their answers to a given number of either decimal places or significant figures. I aim to use these as a starter in each lesson/revision session leading up to the calculator paper. Answers included.

#### Y11 Higher (C/B Grade) Homework Sheets

Inspired by http://goo.gl/EUD8Mu I have created 20 Higher Tier h/w sheets for students aiming to get a C/B grade. The sheets alternate between non-calc and calc h/ws and will be used in Term 1 this year. I will then use some B/A grade h/w sheets (watch this space) in Term 2/3. These sheets are aimed at giving students revision of the topics needed to achieve C/B grades in their GCSEs.

#### Cash for questions revision activity

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.
