All my resources have been created to use with classes I teach. Often I've created resources because, for a particular topic, I haven't been happy with the number/standard of the examples in a textbook. Sometimes I've created worksheets for certain topics (e.g. graph transformations) because I feel my classes will make greater progress on a printed worksheet than trying to work from a textbook. I always aim to produce high-quality resources that improve the students' learning and understanding.

AQA Large data set resources

(1)
These resources are designed to help to introduce your students to the AQA Large Data Set for 2018-19, to get them familiar with some of its properties and typical questions that can be asked about data taken from it. The worksheet begins by introducing the data selected by AQA and the regions of England that are referred to. There are then several pages of examples, chosen to illustrate particular properties of the data or a certain style of question. The examples cover the following: How data is categorised - shows students categories and sub-categories How data values are presented - shows students how the exact values in the LDS are rounded for tables/extracts Outliers - shows how outliers can be identified and common outliers in the data Interpretation of diagrams - allows students to consider what can and cannot be deduced from a range of diagrams The intention is that these examples are worked through and discussed with your class. Possible answers to the examples are given in the teacher version of the worksheet. There is then a 6-page exercise for students to complete. This exercise contains questions that are based on the style of the exemplar questions released by AQA, so they should be ideal practice for your students. Answers to the exercise are included. The spreadsheet is designed to make it easier and quicker to analyse certain aspects of the large data set. By simply selecting the 2 food categories you wish to investigate, the spreadsheet will: Pull all the relevant data onto a single sheet Calculate PMCC between the 2 food categories (for each region, and for each year) Calculate quartiles and indicate the presence of any outliers Draw scatter diagrams for each region, and for each year The spreadsheet is a really useful tool to help you quickly select some data from the LDS that can be used to illustrate/discuss a particular aspect of the data or to practise a particular style of question. Alternatively, the spreadsheet could be given to your students so that they are able to do some investigation of the data themselves, without needing to know much about using Excel. The final resource is just a set of notes on how to use the spreadsheet and its functionality.

Hypothesis testing (new A level) - notes, examples, exercises. MCQs and a homework/test

(0)
This 17-page resource covers all the required knowledge and techniques for hypothesis testing in the AS part of the new A level. It contains detailed notes, examples to work through with your class, and exercises of questions for students to attempt themselves (answers included). The topics covered are: 1. Sampling - different methods of sampling, biased and representative samples 2. Unbiased estimators - estimating the population mean and variance from a sample 3. Setting up a hypothesis test - null and alternative hypotheses 4. Making a conclusion - p-values, significance levels, 1-tail and 2-tail tests 5. Critical regions - finding the critical region for a hypothesis test 6. Significance levels and errors - probability of incorrectly rejecting null hypothesis, nominal vs actual significance level This projectable and printable resource will save you having to write out or create any notes/examples when teaching this topic. It also increases how much you can get through in lessons as students don't have to copy notes/questions and can work directly onto spaces provided for solutions. You could also email/print some or all of this for students who have missed lessons or need additional notes/practice/revision. The second resource is a set of multiple-choice questions that can be used a quick assessment or as part of a revision/refresher lesson. Also included is a 2-page assessment that covers the whole topic. Fully worked solutions are included.
Worksheets to learn the shapes of trigonometric graphs and solve trigonometric equations

Worksheets to learn the shapes of trigonometric graphs and solve trigonometric equations

(0)
Teaching a class about the shape of trigonometric graphs and using them to learn rules that can be used to solve trigonometric equations can be difficult using a textbook or drawing on a whiteboard - I find it much easier with these printable worksheets with ready-drawn grids and graphs. The first worksheet gets students to work out and plot values of the sine function between 0 and 360 degrees so see the shape of the curve. There are then a number of examples using the sine graph to find angles with equivalent values using sine (e.g. sin 30 = sin 150). The worksheet finishes with some equations to solve, of the form sinx = a, where the students should use the rule(s) they have learned to find all the solutions. The next two worksheets follow the same format as the first, but now for the cosine and tangent functions. The last document practises working with all 3 graphs/functions so it can be used as a summary activity or assessment.

Sample space diagrams 2. Two-way tables 3. Tree diagrams 4. Venn diagrams and set notation 5. Independent, mutually exclusive and complementary events 6. Probability distributions 7. Arranging items (preliminary work for Binomial distribution) 8. Binomial distribution This projectable and printable resource will save you having to draw any tables/diagrams when teaching the topic and will make things easier for your students as they can just work directly on the provided tables and diagrams. Also included is a worksheet designed to specifically practise writing cumulative probability calculations in the required form for using a calculator. The 2 page assessment covers all aspects of the topic and fully worked solutions are provided. Lastly, I have included a spreadsheet that calculates and illustrates probabilities for any Binomial distribution with n up to 100. You may find this resource useful to show the shape of the distribution and, in later work, how the distribution approximates a Normal distribution in certain conditions.

Resolving forces - worksheet to teach and practise this skill (Mechanics 1)

(1)
I found it time-consuming tryingto teach my classes how to resolve forces by drawing diagrams on the board and asking them to copy them down - it seemed to take ages and they didn't get to work through that many examples themselves. So I created this worksheet with ready-made diagrams with all the forces and a blank copy of diagram for students to add on the resolved forces. I no longer dread teaching this skill and my classes get a lot more done in the lesson time. The worksheet starts with an introductory explanation and a worked example. There are then over 20 questions for students to attempt. Fully worked solutions are included.

Proof (new A level)

(0)
This 17-page worksheet can be used to deliver the topic of proof in the new AS level specification for all exam boards. A great resource to help deliver this new topic - fully worked solutions included and a version with teaching notes added for some key points. It begins by reviewing all the required basic knowledge. It discusses particular errors in solutions/proofs, covers the use of ⇒, ⇐ and ⇔, and writing solutions to inequalities in interval and set notation. For each of these 3 topics there are notes, then examples to work through with your class, then an exercise for students to complete. For each of the 3 methods of proof (counter example, deduction, and exhaustion) there are a number of examples for you to work through as a class, followed by an exercise for students to attempt themselves. There are also some suggested extension activities for students interested in doing some research or additional work that goes beyond the scope of the syllabus. The fully-worked solutions to the exercises are included in the students’ version, and fully-worked solutions to all the examples are also included in the teachers’ versions. I needed about 3 hours’ of teaching time to get through this whole worksheet with my classes. A homework/test is also included, with fully-worked solutions provided.

AS level statistics test x2 (new A level)

(0)
These are two different tests I created to assess the whole of the statistics element of the new AS level. Each test contains 16/17 examination-style questions, based on exemplar questions, specimen papers, topic tests or textbook questions, The tests cover the following: Cumulative frequency diagrams Box and whisker diagrams Histograms Scatter diagrams and correlation Finding/estimating averages or measures of spread from grouped/ungrouped data or from summary statistics Probability (two-way tables, tree diagrams, venn diagrams, independent and mutually exclusive events) Probability density functions Binomial distribution Sampling methods Hypothesis testing Both tests come with fully-worked solutions. Having two different tests is useful if, like me, you have two different A level groups and want to set them different tests, or you could give out one as a practice test or revision and use the other for an actual test.
