#### GCSESimultaneous Equations graphically - worksheet

<p>GCSE Solving simultaneous equations using a graphical method. </p><p> This worksheet only has straight line graphs. No curves. </p><p> I haven’t put numbers on the axes (way too fiddly in word when I’m on a time limit) but they are intended to go up in ones. As always, if you use it - please review it. Eek! Q6 has a slight mistake. It should be -x+y</p>

#### Maths: Percentages without a calculator worksheets

Need to spice up this rather dry topic.
For this dot to dot have students join question number to answer, e.g. Q1 find 10% of 80 so join 1 to 8. You must say to them to then do Q8 rather than 2 for two reasons:
1. it's quicker as you know where dot 8 is and don&'t need to waste time searching for dot 2.
2. The questions gradually get harder around the shape.

These two worksheets are for drawing quadratic graphs.
Both are similar and I allowed students to use a calculator but that's up to you. As always, if you use it - please review it.

#### 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.
