June 2018 OCR predicted paper 2 (Foundation)

June 2018 OCR predicted paper 2 (Foundation)

I have put together a predicted foundation paper 2 for the OCR spec (non calc), it is focused on topics which have not been tested on paper 1 and i have tried to use similar style of questions to recent OCR specimen and the last 2 exam papers. There is a mark scheme which i have quickly put together, this is not detailed (a quick guide!) Please note the predicted paper is just a best guess and it is not 100% that the content on it will turn up. The bulk of the content has been adapted and nothing is copied exactly from any specific paper or resource. This may be used as a useful revision activity! Hope it is of good use, leave a comment. Sorry for any silly errors in advance! I have spotted one myself: question 18 to find P 3 x 3 x 3 x 2 x 7 =378 ops!

Insertion Sort and Merge Sort Self-Marking Questions

Insertion Sort and Merge Sort Self-Marking Questions

Designed for GCSE/A-Level students who are taking computer science. Helpful also for A-Level maths students. It is a self-marking excel sheet that will test students on insertion sort and merge sort, giving them an outline for how to write the answers to such questions in exams. In the top left corner there is a cell to input a number, by inputting this number, it will change the values in the insertion/merge sort question.

Heuristics, Occams razor, and how is that possible pt 3

Heuristics, Occams razor, and how is that possible pt 3

How is that possible - part 3 Using heuristics to In maths, when you are asked the question ‘is something possible or not’ and you suspect it is possible, it is useful to ask more questions. You can ask, for example, ‘how is it possible’, or ‘which properties should this construction satisfy’. You need to look for some additional knowledge to narrow the number of possible answers. It will help you to see what the answer is. Following Sherlock Holmes’s methods you can come up with a question, consider all the cases, and then discard the impossible ones. What’s left will be your answer, however impossible it seemed in the beginning. This is aimed at G&T year 10’s to allow them to stretch their problem-solving skills. Separate question and answer sheets are provided. We Solve Problems is a charity, founded by three PhD mathematicians, whose aim is to promote the use of advanced mathematics within secondary schools. We want to encourage creative mathematical thinking, to develop a skill within pupils for presenting their results clearly and coherently, as well as promoting personal problem-solving skills.

Football World Cup 2018 Problem Solving activity (Great to engage boys)

Football World Cup 2018 Problem Solving activity (Great to engage boys)

This is a great problem solving activity for groups to work through in small groups to plan the fixtures for the 2018 World Cup. It is great for engaging boys who maybe struggle to become integrated in group work and problem solving activities. When I used this in a class we spent 90 mins planning and the another hour in the computer lab producing a document and posters for the World Cup.

Logic & problem-solving saves wise man

Logic & problem-solving saves wise man

An evil Emperor kidnapped the wisest man in the kingdom and said he was to be put to death. His family pleaded for his life, so the Emperor decided to have some evil fun and give the wise man a chance. The wise man is given 12 pills; 11 are poison and one is safe. The pills are identical except the safe one has a slightly differently weight. He is also given a balance on which he can weigh them. He can only make 3 weighings then he has to take one of the pills. Designed for G&T years 9/10 this calls on all their logic and problem-solving skills. Ideally placed for collaborative working, where trial-and-error tests their ability to be wrong and yet try again. From a teaching perspective this is a real, practical, maths task, where the use of props such as Smarties or Tic-Tacs makes it more realistic than the static pencil and paper - or if you have access to some sort of ‘pod’, like those inside Kinder eggs, it’s very simple to make one slightly heavier than the rest to really bring it to life.
