Working from home Solving GCSE Maths word problems: template and worked examples for 30 questions

(1)
This resource provides a template and highly structured approach to solving 30 GCSE word problems. More and longer word problems in the new maths GCSE reduce the students’ ability to succeed purely on the basis of their maths ability; an increased level of English mastery is now required. There are 30 GCSE word problems included and the approach aims to allow such problems to be tackled more methodically and with greater confidence. The resource contains: • A copy of the approach sheet • Two copies of 30 GCSE questions (the second one provides a model for underlining). • Worked solutions for each problem, using the approach sheet with answers • A PowerPoint containing the questions and answers on the template sheet • A scaffold for less confident students, modelling how to organise and diagrammatically represent the information from the question and allowing the students to do the calculations. • A rationale explaining the theory behind each stage on the template. There is also a list of common-usage words that regularly appear in word problems. As well as being suitable for the whole class, this would be particularly useful for: • EAL students (advanced stage) • Late arrivals in KS4 • Students with SEN may also find it more accessible.
