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

#### 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.

All 48 topic PDFs are housed on my Google drive account which can only be accessed via this single file.

#### Consolidation Worksheets for Pearson Maths 9-1 Higher Textbook (Chapters 1-8) - With Answers

Since starting the new 9-1 Maths course using the Pearson Higher Textbook ('Practice, Reasoning and Problem solving Book') I have been creating these worksheets for my students to revise for end of chapter tests. They have proved very successful and so I have taken the time to pack them all together and provide answers in this bundle resource.<br />
<br />
Each worksheet is double sided taking about a lesson to complete covering the key skills from each Chapter. They follow the same Scheme as the Pearson textbook but could easily be used more generally, particularly as revision near the end of the year.<br />
<br />
This bundle includes Chapters 1-8, I will be producing another bundle that will include Chapters 9-19 soon.<br />
<br />
Chapter 1- Number, Chapter 2 - Algebra, Chapter 3 - Interpreting and representing data, Chapter 4 - Fractions, ratio and percentages, Chapter 5 - Angles and trigonometry, Chapter 6 - Graphs, Chapter 7 - Area and Volume, Chapter 8 - Transformations and Constructions.
