Thank you! My functional skills groups have finished their exams and now have to 'move up' a level for the rest of the term - so games or different approaches are great at this time - this looks fantastic. I've even got my tangrams out (with answers) for some stretch and challenge

#### Formulae Display and Test for New Specification 2015 Mathematics Examination

This highly visible and colour coded display contains all the formulae needed for the new specification GCSE Mathematics. The new specification has a vastly reduced formulae cover sheet, requiring pupils to retain and recall a large amount of new and previously given formulae. This poster aids pupils retention and application of formulae by also providing a document with missing formulae so that the pupils can be periodically tested for their retention.
This display can be printed out up to A0 without distortion, and so can provides a ready-made interactive classroom display that instantly aids children's understanding and application of mathematics.

#### GCSE Maths Mind Maps & Checklists AQA Edexcel Foundation Higher

I’ve created some mind maps to help students revise the 4 main areas in maths: Algebra, Number, Shape & Data. Simple language has been used to make them accessible to all students.
I also included corresponding checklists for students to use to help them with their revision. A smiley face denotes the student has mastered & is confident in the topic, straight- could do with some revision, and unhappy- this topic needs attention. These are in word doc format so feel free to edit/add/subtract to them.
I’ve used this to help plan revision lessons and get an idea of what the group finds difficult and this has worked well.
For a more in depth look at the individual areas please see my other resources:
