Worksheet to practise Simple and Compound interest, and reverse proportion

(11)
Practice questions covering a range of problems mainly involving compound growth. There are three questions at the beginning specifying 'simple' interest to remind students that there is a difference between simple growth and compound growth, but the bulk of the worksheet asks students to practice compounding interest over a specified number of time periods, and to apply reasoning to reverse the compounded growth in order to find the original amount.

GCSE Religious Studies self-assessment rubrics for writing extended responses

GCSE Religious Studies self-assessment rubrics for writing extended responses

(0)
These rubrics allow students to review and evaluate their own work. The 'RS Checklist for Success' is more appropriate for Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 learners who are middle to lower ability, and need to learn to scaffold their own work and check for completeness, SPAG, and general presentation. We use the rubric as a support for those students who are prone to making the same basic literacy errors, and who need to develop their basic written responses. The 'RS GCSE Checklist for Success provides two tables; one for Edexcel GCSE Part c) style responses (usually requiring two points that are clearly expressed and sufficiently developed, and where a source of authority is referred to); and one for Part d) style responses which require greater depth of argument with points FOR, points AGAINST and a general balanced conclusion. While developed for RS Edexcel Specification B, the tables can easily be edited and adapted to suit any essay writing needs, to encourage self-assessment and ensure students have a framework that will support progress and success.

Maths Department Handbook proforma

Maths Department Handbook proforma

(0)
This is a comprehensive Maths Department Handbook proforma containing 66 pages that can be easily adapted for the needs of any secondary Maths department. It has been reviewed as part of my school's external inspection process and was cited as exemplary. I hope you find it useful. Obviously many sections, such as assessment, homework, behavioural policy, available resources, are specific to my school, and would need some amendment. Other sections, such as G&T policies, Calculation policy, Literacy policy, Use of ICT and Calculators, use of learning support etc should provide a good foundation for departments to personalise. It includes descriptors for the new GCSE specification 9 -1 grades.
