GCSE Maths Revision

Discover the very best GCSE and iGCSE Maths resources to be used in the classroom 

With exams looming on the horizon, I thought it was high-time I put together a collection of some of the very best revision resources Tes Maths has to offer for use in the classroom. 

Here you will find all you need to get the most out of these last few months in the build up the summer exams including, retrieval practice, exam questions, spot the mistake and revision with a difference.

Next month we will turn our attention to independent revision.

Enjoy, and happy revising!

Retrieval practice

Regular retrieval of key skills is the secret to help them stick;  these lovely resources are perfect for that

Multiple Choice Starter Questions

A multiple choice question linked to every objective (I think?!) on the GCSE syllabus. Use them to assess what pupils need teaching, what misconceptions need addressing or what students already know.

GCSE Revision starters - Foundation

Differentiated starters for use at the start of each lesson for a week.
Each set has 4 slides - one for each lesson so that hopefully there is progression over the week.

Brockington College Maths homework booklets

All of the homework booklets I design for my Maths department, free and in one place.

Obviously cannot post answers here, but happy for people to email me for them - a DM on twitter with your email address is the best way to get them.

Note there are a few images borrowed from different places. Apologies for any infringement and please just let me know and I am happy to credit or change as required.

Revision with a difference

A brilliant sets of resources that give students practice of key skills and concepts but in novel and engaging ways

What Was The Question? - Number Special

Four screens each with four questions that have the same answer but the question is missing information; can your class work out what information is missing? This is designed to create discussion (some questions have multiple answers possible and can be extended by asking students to find general solutions) and I intend to use these as starters. All these are number based questions involving fractions, percentages, ratio, directed numbers and more. I use these as starters; I put them on the board and students can get straight on with them upon their arrival.

Worded Equations Codebreaker

A colleague asked me if I had any worded equations problems (form and solve etc); I didn’t but I do now. The joke is one of my favourites. Enjoy!

Sets and Venn Diagrams Spiders

Four spiders on sets and two on shading Venn diagrams. Hopefully these will create a little discussion and make students think. A couple of the diagrams now improved.

Crack The Safe - Expanding, Simplifying and Factorising Expressions

Three “Crack The Safe” activities on expressions: expanding and factorising, including quadratics and expanding three brackets. These contain six questions (four on the three brackets) but three possible answers for each question meaning that students can self-check their answers (are they in the list of possible answers?) whilst the teacher can help those who require it. I use these as starters and plenaries but that is obviously up to you.

Spot the mistake

'Spot the mistake' style revision activities are brilliant for identifying and discussing key misconceptions

Clumsy Clive On Solving Equations

Clive has made mistakes on his homework again. There are equations involving brackets, fractions, letters on "both sides" and different mistakers in each. This is to test students' understanding of solving linear equations and is designed to test typical mistakes and encourage discussion about these.

Standard form - tick, trash or improve

Worksheets based on the Maths4Real videos task or "Tick or Trash", with the added label of "improve" for when students spot something that isn't necessarily wrong but can be improved.

This version deals with standard form.
By DurhamPotter

Expanding Brackets

A selection of resources for expanding single brackets.

Would I Lie To You - choose 3 students to stand at the front and be the 'panel'. Give each one a card and put the question on the board. Get students to read out their 'answer'. Rest of students decide who is telling the truth and who are lying, then discuss the misconceptions.

SOHCAHTOA Spot the error

A consolidation or homework activity for pupils learning basic trigonometry. Pupils must decide whether the solution is correct and if it is not must explain what error has been made and provide a correction.
