TES Maths ROTW: Higher GCSE box activity

TES Maths Resource of the Week

Resource title:  The box: Higher GCSE revision activity

Resource author:  philfallout

What is it?

One slide, 20 questions and a box, equals an original, engaging activity. The questions are all based around a box, and they get progressively more difficult as students work their way through. Thankfully, the answers are provided.

The topics covered include volume, units of measurement, percentages, bounds of error, surds, and much, much more.

How can it be used?

This is the kind of activity you could give to an able Year 10/11 class who are up for a challenge. Just drop it in front of them and let them get on with it. You are then free to wander around the class identifying any problems.

One of my colleagues also used it to great effect with her new Year 12 class. Most of the content is directly relevant to Core 1, and it turns out they had forgotten quite a bit over the summer holidays!
