Core 2 (Edexcel) Revision

Core 2 (Edexcel) Revision

Here is my power point trying to structure questions for C2 from past papers. I have split the paper into 9 sections and tried to group questions together. All solutions are given at a click. For use by giving to pupils and leaving them to it, or working through topics as a class. Every question from 2006-present. Also works extremely well on iPads.

Areas under graphs

Areas under graphs

Suitable for Higher Tier GCSE Mathematics or Further Mathematics, this resource introduces students to a small variety of methods for working out areas underneath graphs. Starting with the counting of squares method, it introduces the Trapezium Rule and others. A chart at the end allows students to record the different estimates they have in order to compare methods, and it concludes with a few thoughts about real-world applications and the basis for integral calculus.

Iteration Method - Staircase and Cobweb Diagrams

Iteration Method - Staircase and Cobweb Diagrams

Presentation that shows learners how to use the iterative approach to find the roots of equations. Starts by locating roots by looking for the change in sign between certain values and leads on to an example of how to use an iteration method to find approximate solutions. Also I have added some autograph graphs that can be used to show students how to produce staircase and cobweb diagrams.SMART Notebook Express presentations can be used for free by using SMART online or by downloading SMART software, also free, I use it because it allows a more interactive presentation than a powerpoint. Just search 'SMART Notebook Express' and try it with my free SMART resource.
