David Morse's Resources

I am regularly uploading resources that I have created during nearly 30 years as a teacher. Most of these are maths, but there are some ICT/Computing and Tutor Time activities on the way. All of the resources that I upload are my own and are not available from third-parties. These resources have been tweaked over time and I have had many happy lessons and shed-loads of happy and successful students. At the end of last year, the TES announced that I was the most downloaded new author of 2017 😀

It can even be given to individual students if a parent is asking for ‘some more work’! KEY POINTS: I have provided full answers, with comments and working where helpful. I have maintained the style of the actual SATs questions so that students can become comfortable with the way that SATs questions are presented. Most of the questions are from actual SATs papers, but I have also added questions so that this resource matches the requirements the current curriculum better than the older resources that are still in common use (note that many of the older resources of this type contain questions on topics which are no longer examined). I have spent a lot of time arranging the questions so that there is a general increase in difficulty as students work through them, and so that they fit on the pages better – this means less wasted space and significant paper-saving when printing 😃 <hr>👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.
