Goal free problems are GCSE questions without the question! Just the information. This allows students to create and answer their own questions which is the highest ranking skill in Bloom’s taxonomy and means the task is instantly differentiated by students’ outcomes. Enjoy!

Secondary Maths Learning Journey

I have done a years 7 - 9, year 10-11 foundation and year 10-11 higher learning journey to accompany my 5 year scheme of work. I thought I’d upload them separately too for anyone looking for a good template. Easy to edit for your school or for a different subject area. Great to give out at open evening, transition days, parents evenings, on school website… Original template created by @NathanDay314 (give him a follow if you’re on Twitter and you like this!) and you can follow me @JaggersMaths Enjoy!

Full preview available at https://www.JaggersMaths.co.uk/top-ten-tests These are short GCSE papers that test skills from higher tier, aimed at students working at/towards grades 7-9. Each set of these papers test 10 skills at GCSE level. Each set has 4 versions to choose from with increasing levels of difficulty: 4 Green > 4 Yellow > 4 Red > 2 Blue For example, A green paper simultaneous equations question has the same coefficient of y. A blue paper simultaneous equations question is worded with a contextual answer. This allows you to build up students confidence and improve their skills at a pace appropriate for your class. There are worked solutions to accompany every paper.

Pick 'n' Mix papers - Crossover

(6)
Full preview available at https://www.jaggersmaths.co.uk/pick-n-mix-papers These are short GCSE papers aimed at grades 4 and 5. Each paper covers 6 out of 30 preselected grade 4 and 5 skills at random. Across the 10 papers, each skill is tested twice. There is also the same distribution of Number, Ratio and Proportion, Algebra, Geometry and Measures, Statistics and Probability as there is in the GCSE foundation exams. These are ideal leading up to the exam period once students have learnt all the skills and need to recap alot of skills in a short period of time. The papers are designed to be short enough to be completed and marked by students within a lesson or as part of a weekly homework. The front cover also provides space to encourage students to reflect on what they need to revise and key things they need to remember before their exams. There are worked solutions to accompany every paper (with mark breakdown). There is also a sheet included of which skills appear on which papers.

Write, Replicate, Review - REVISE

Write, Replicate, Review - REVISE

(5)
Simple but effective way to recap a lot of basic skills with your class before an assessment, PPE or exam. Write - you complete an example at the board. Talk through how to do it and students watch and WRITE down everything you do. Replicate - students are given a similar example to complete themselves. They must REPLICATE what they have just been shown. Review - You then REVIEW the question together. Either answer it at the board with them or project and talk through the answers to keep up the pace of the lesson. Revision - Students add to their REVISION list on the final page any topics they they feel they struggle with. I can cover around 12 key topics in a 60 minute lesson this way but beware - it only covers the basic skills and should be supplemented with lessons on problem solving, exam technique and exam style questions. I’ve split into the main topic headings so it is easier to find the questions you require. Yellow = Foundation only Green = Crossover topics Blue = Higher only There is a pdf version in case you don’t have smart and for ease of printing students booklets.
Same surface... different depth!

Same surface... different depth!

(4)
Here are my same surface different depth problems! Lots of students don’t read questions carefully enough and just assume what the question is asking them to do based on the basic information in the question. These problems aim to combat this. Each page contains 4 problems that, on the surface, appear the same (or at least very similar!) However each question requires different skills to solve. This means students have to read the question very carefully to deduce which skill they should be using. Enjoy!

Which of these could be the odd one out and why?

(10)
Great little activity for starters. Good for differentiation/mixed ability sets. I've tried to make sure that there is a reason every one could be the odd one out on each slide so that students can give more than one answer and/or more than one reason as well. Differentiated by outcome so allows students of different abilities to perceive the problem in their own way. I will update the resource with more variations over time so keep checking back and re-downloading.

Erica's errors - GCSE

(26)
We are starting to see more and more questions at GCSE asking students to spot and correct the mistake made. Clumsy Clive and Erica’s errors problems by @andylutwyche for are a perfect way to tackle this and I have edited and collated them togther. “Erica has made some silly mistakes on her homework. Your students’ task is to find the errors, correct them and explain what Erica has done incorrectly. This should generate discussion in class.”
The cheese tiered cake problem - difficult volume of cylinders problem
JaggersMathsJaggersMaths

The cheese tiered cake problem - difficult volume of cylinders problem

(2)
This is a problem I designed for my top set year 10s on the volume of cylinders. It is based around a tiered cake of cheese. Students have to find the volume/diameter/height of each wheel of cheese. They start at the bottom and work their way up to the top; they can’t answer question 2 unless they have answered question 1 first etc… Very good functional/real life and engaging problem for them to work on. The second cake is much harder with question 2c being the most challenging. Full answers provided.
