Two cross numbers, some overlap questions but the second one is much harder than the first. Topics include: fractions of amounts, converting fractions to decimals, calculating with money, highest common factor, percentage reduction, dividing with decimals, least common multiples, ratios, roots, speed distance time, rounding, percentage increase, and the harder sheet also contains standard form, surds, compound interest and harder versions of some of the other topics.

Fun revision activities for GCSE Maths

Fun revision activities for GCSE Maths

Two sets of 12 cards for students to cut up, solve and then place cards in ascending/descending order of solutions. A multiple choice activity - where each answer gives a letter. The full set of letters can be rearranged to spell the name of a band, and finally a cross number all covering multiple topics Just a slightly different way to get students to look at revision. A range of grades to allow access for all from beginning.

Fun revision activity for GCSE Maths

12 cards for students to cut up, solve and then place cards in ascending order of solutions. Just a slightly different way to get students to look at revision. A range of grades to allow access for all from beginning. When I use this with my class, I get students to work in pairs. I also give them paper to stick the cards on once order is complete and get them to write their working around the outside. I have found students to be much more engaged than if they were just given a page of questions. The 12 included topics are: Solving linear equations x's on both sides,fractions with negative fractional powers, Pythagoras' theorem, finding area of a triangle (using 1/2 absinC), median of a box plot, HCF, Percentage loss, standard form, area of a sector, circle theorems, mean of grouped data and range from stem and leaf diagram. Most of the included topics are around the higher/foundation borderline.

Colour by special numbers (squares, cubes and primes)

Colour by special numbers (squares, cubes and primes)

This is a colouring sheet to get students to begin to recognise square numbers, cube numbers and prime numbers working around grades 3 and 4 of the new 1-9 mathematics GCSE. Students colour based on whether the number in each box is a square number, a cube number or a prime number. The sheet requires 3 colours per student. Due to the colouring nature of this sheet, it is very easy to see which students understand and which need support. Looks fantastic on a classroom wall once completed. Solution is the pattern displayed. All feedback gratefully received.
