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.
AS level statistics test x2 (new A level)

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.

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.

Each section has a brief introduction or summary of key knowledge, then there are some examples to work through as a class to practise the skills. The worksheet covers: 1.Solving quadratic equations 2. Sketching graphs or finding the equation from the graph 3. Completing the square and its application for sketching, solving, vertex etc 4. Solving quadratic inequalities 5. Using the discriminant 6. Disguised quadratics Answers to all the examples are given at the back. The second resource is a set of questions designed to test the whole of the topic with some examination-style questions. Worked solutions are provided for these questions. Note that the first resource makes reference to exercises in a textbook for additional practice - the references are for an AQA textbook but they can be amended to suit whatever book you are working from.
Resolving forces - worksheet to teach and practise this skill (Mechanics 1)

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.

The powerpoint presentation can be used to introduce this topic, containing examples and explanations. The notes and examples sheet can just be handed out as a reminder during the tasks, or later as a revision resource. The first activity just requires the students to indicate on a grid whether each item is an equation, expression, identity or formula. The second activity involves cutting out each item and putting/sticking it into the correct column on the answer table. All answers are included.
Factorising quadratics - introduction and practice
langy74

Factorising quadratics - introduction and practice

(0)
I created these resources to try to help my classes understand the process of factorising quadratic expressions of the form x^2+bx+c. The idea behind them is to first get the class to practise finding the 2 numbers that have a specified product and sum, then to start to apply this to factorisation with some scaffolded questions. The first resource gets them to focus on finding the 2 numbers that have a specified product and sum. The 4-page worksheet is broken into four sections - both numbers positive, both numbers negative, one positive and one negative, and then a mixed section. The second resource is a spreadsheet activity where your classes can further practise the skill of finding the 2 numbers that have a specified product and sum. The questions are randomly generated and they get instant feedback on their answers, either telling them it is correct or telling them which requirement (product/sum) has not been met, giving them a chance to try again. It keeps track of how many each student has answered correctly so you can make this into a competitive activity. The final 4-page resource starts to apply the skill of finding 2 numbers that have a specified product and sum to factorising quadratics. Each section starts with a set of questions asking for 2 numbers with a specified product and sum, then asks the student to complete/write down the related factorisation. Each section concludes with some factorising questions with no scaffolding. Section A is both numbers positive, section B is both numbers negative, section C is one number positive and one number negative. Sections D has almost 50 quadratic expressions to factorise - starting with a few of each type and then moving onto mixed questions. Answers to both the worksheets are provided.
