Maths GCSE 9-1 Counting Problems Foundation and Higher Tiers

Maths GCSE 9-1 Counting Problems Foundation and Higher Tiers

Two sets of questions, differentiated by paper, for learners to complete. Plus answers. Counting has always been on Foundation, so quite easy for learners. Sophisticated counting strategies are new to the GCSE higher tier. The specs say: apply systematic listing strategies, including use of the product rule for counting (i.e. if there are m ways of doing one task and for each of these, there are n ways of doing another task, then the total number of ways the two tasks can be done is m × n ways) Hence also suitable for revision at A Level Statistics. All questions follow the format of 2017 exams across the boards, and the SAMs and Mocks available.

Counting Arrays

Counting Arrays

A set of 5 worksheets and an accompanying presentation to allow students to count arrays in a variety of ways. The emphasis is not on how many dots there are, but instead on the ways in which students 'see' the numbers (example provided). The activity is intended as a whole class discussion prompt but can be used as independent tasks as well. Designed to improve multiplicative reasoning.
