3 version of this are included full version, condensed version with out space for answers to save on photocopying, condensed version with out links to answers.

The GCSE maths is divided in to five different topics, there will be a different number of questions (or parts of questions) depending on the topic. The different number of questions in each section in this book reflects the exam.

15% Number 8 questions

20% Geometry and Measure 10 questions

This book is not designed as a text book or revision guide, but as a workbook. There are lots of good (and bad) expensive and free revision guides out there, on my YouTube channel and other great websites. So, there is no point in me adding to the masses.

All the teaching, all the new content and fully worked answers, is available for free on my YouTube channel, this book is for you to practice and learn. The best way to approach this is to watch the teaching video and make notes, or after class try a section and check the answers.

Any corrections that are needed after the book is published will be listed on my website, www.primrosekitten.com these will be corrected in the next version of the book

GCSE Maths 9-1 Revision Masters

We used these as homework for Year 11 covering a half term. New topic Masters aim to get higher paper pupils familiar with some of the new topics and new style of questioning on the new GCSE. Higher/Foundation Masters are aimed at all students to become more confident in some of the cross over topics. Foundation Masters aimed at foundation paper pupils to gain more confidence in number work and money problems. I found that it worked best printed on one A4 sheet for students to stick at the back of their books and leave a page for their workings. The tracker is useful for pupils and teachers to track progress. Created for students sitting AQA specification in 2017.

Higher GCSE Revision Workouts

Two revision activities for Higher GCSE students (designed for students working at Grades 6 - 8). Students work through the questions on the sheet to revise facts and procedures for a range of topics. This is very ‘print budget friendly’, with a single side of A4 providing enough questions to fill a whole lesson (expect it to take around 45 minutes).

There are two versions: calculator and non-calculator. The non-calculator version was written by @Adam_SmithMaths and tweaked by me. I wrote the calculator version.

If you find any errors please let me know (@mathsjem).

Knowledge organisers

Knowledge organiser Unit 2F Intorduction to Algebra

I wrote this having been inspired by a twilight INSET at my school promoting the benefits of low stakes quizzes and knowledge organisers. This is how i used it with my year 9 foundation group.
At the beginning of the unit i gave everyone an A4 colour copy of the knowledge organsier. Every lesson i referred to this page and talked through the previous lesson and,also, where we are going in todays journey. After i had introduced all topics, we spent the next few lessons working through the mini-tests to ensure as much fluency as i could muster!
Having used them, i think the biggest drawback was that students were reliant on this sheet and i should have demanded students spend time re-producing the important elements of this knowledge organiser so they could recall the information for themselves.
I also felt that the questions became progressively more difficult and this thwarted fluency a little, especially for my weaker students.
There’s always next time …

Please let me know how you use this resource and any suggestions on how it can be improved. Please contact me using my twitter handle @billyads_47

Maths Revision Mat: Algebra

Please use this mat as a revision game to play in groups in the classroom. This should be printed on A3 paper and laminated so that it can be re-used. This means that students can write their initials on their square instead of using counters. The way the game is played can be manipulated. However, the main instructions are as follows (also included on sheet):

Roll Two Die to Create a Co-ordinate. Place your coloured counter on the square that the roll corresponds to. If answer is correct, receive points as follows:
Points: Red squares are worth 1, Yellow squares score 2 points, and Green squares score 5 points
Grades: Red squares are 4/5 Grade, Yellow squares and 6/7 Grade and Green Squares and 8/9 Grade answers

Please use a great revision resource for group work. Please also leave any feedback for future revision mats and how to improve them.
