KS3 and GCSE Powers, Factors, Primes and Multiples Exam Questions

KS3 and GCSE Powers, Factors, Primes and Multiples Exam Questions

A bank of exam questions for KS3/GCSE maths students on the topics of powers, factors, primes and multiples. Other topics touched on by this pack include properties of number, fractions and finding the nth term of a sequence. These could be set as homework or worked through by pupils in a lesson. I also used these questions as starters in lessons to give pupils of examples of exam questions of the topic being covered in the leson or to recap content from a previous lesson.

Sequences

Sequences

This series of worksheets looks at sequences. Continuing a sequence, the nth term of a linear sequence and the nth term of a quadratic sequence. I use these worksheets initially to accompany the lessons being taught and then as followup work to help with retention.
