#### Aiming at Grade 4 - GCSE Maths Revision Workbook

(0)
Here is a complete workbook of Grade 4 topics for GCSE Maths. Answers also included. I created this for my classes this year as they are mixed ability within foundation GCSE. I also made an aiming at grade 2 and aiming at grade 3 workbooks that I will hopefully also upload. They are great for all general work, classwork, homework, revision. To decide on the topics I did some brief analysis of recent papers and what topics came up compared to marks needed for a grade 4. If students are confident on the majority of the topics in this workbook, then they should be able to achieve a grade 4. Note in the top right corner on Page 3 there is a blank space, here I added a QR code to the answers, you could do similar. There are exactly 100 topics covered across: Four Operations Fractions Factors, Multiples and Primes Decimals Percentages Fractions, Decimals &amp; Percentages Rounding Powers and Roots Indices Ratio Algebra Expanding &amp; Factorising Solving Linear Equations Straight Line Graphs Inequalities Angles Angles in Polygons 2D Shapes Perimeter Area 3D Shapes Measure Time Money Compound measure Scale Drawings Transformations Similarity Probability Venn Diagrams Averages &amp; the Range Frequency Tables Scatter Graphs

The quiz is 8 rounds totalling 90 marks: Picture round (with optional timer) Top Toys Music Xmas Food Movies Subjects (2 Maths, 2 English, 3 Science, 1 Geography, 1 History, 1 Environment) True or False (Xmas traditions) ` 𝗣𝗥𝗘𝗩𝗜𝗘𝗪 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗤𝗨𝗜𝗭 𝗛𝗘𝗥𝗘 http://tiny.cc/kg91vz (𝗙𝗜𝗥𝗦𝗧 𝗤𝗨𝗘𝗦𝗧𝗜𝗢𝗡 𝗢𝗥 𝗦𝗢 𝗙𝗥𝗢𝗠 𝗘𝗔𝗖𝗛 𝗥𝗢𝗨𝗡𝗗) I hope you enjoy using Genially and I hope you have fun, please review if you like it and feel free to contact me with any problems. NB I have not had time to update from last year, but this none of the questions are exclusive to 2022, so still perfect for this year!

#### Revision Worksheets for GCSE Maths 9-1 Higher Pearson Textbook (Chapters 1-19) - With Answers

(0)
COMPLETE BUNDLE Since starting the new 9-1 Maths course using the Pearson Higher Textbook (‘Practice, Reasoning and Problem solving Book’) I have been creating these Revision/Consolidation worksheets for my students to revise for end of chapter tests. They have proved very successful and so I have taken the time to pack them all together and provide answers in this bundle resource. Each worksheet is double sided taking about a lesson to complete covering the key skills from each Chapter. They follow the same Scheme as the Pearson textbook but could easily be used more generally, particularly as revision near the end of the year. This resource compiles the two previous resources I had produced covering Chapters 1-8 and Chapters 9-19 respectively. Those resources were each priced at £2, this I am pricing at £3 so that you can save money buying this resource rather than both separately if you wish. So included in this resource are: Chapter 1- Number, Chapter 2 - Algebra, Chapter 3 - Interpreting and representing data, Chapter 4 - Fractions, ratio and percentages, Chapter 5 - Angles and trigonometry, Chapter 6 - Graphs, Chapter 7 - Area and Volume, Chapter 8 - Transformations and Constructions, Chapter 9 - Equations &amp; Inequalities, Chapter 10 - Probability, Chapter 11 - Multiplicative Reasoning, Chapter 12 - Similarity &amp; Congruence, Chapter 13 - More Trigonometry, Chapter 14 - Further Statistics, Chapter 15 - Equations &amp; Graphs, Chapter 16 - Circle Theorems, Chapter 17 - More Algebra, Chapter 18 - Vectors &amp; Geometric Proof, Chapter 19 - Proportion &amp; Graphs. Effectively you are getting a consolidation worksheet for every chapter in a Maths GCSE Higher Textbook for £3 that you can copy and use until your heart’s content representing superb value in my humble opinion ;-p

#### Maths Escape Room (Online)

(3)
Get your students a device and set them free on this GCSE Maths ‘escape room’ (which actually has multiple rooms). There are 7 levels, each level has a puzzle and a challenge. The puzzle is not particularly Maths related; the challenges are. This escape room is based around Number (future ones planned around other key areas…), topics covered in the challenges are: Times tables Long multiplication/division &amp; checking answers Definitions (crossword) Equivalent fractions Percentage of amount Adding &amp; Subtracting with negatives Currency conversion There is also a ‘bonus’ at the end which allows a student to catch up if they forgot to write down some key elements whilst moving through the game, this has another 7 Maths questions. Questions are all pitched around GCSE foundation level. I hope students (and maybe teachers) will find this fun, it would be a good light-hearted revision lesson or end of term lesson. I imagine most classes will take around an hour completing the game. If they finish early, they could be encouraged to think about designing their own. There is a ‘login’ on slide 1 which allows teachers to jump to the different levels in one-click with the password. Free sample version available here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-12680055

#### Save on Printing GCSE Maths Past Papers (Foundation) 9-1 & A*-E

(0)
Department budget pushed? Reduce your printing bill by up to 75% with these re-configured past papers intended to be printed as A5 booklets. They function as question papers, pupils write their answers on separate paper or in their books. There are 14 past papers in total: 6 of the new specimen papers from the 1-9 syllabus and 8 from the old A*-E syllabus. I have found the old papers helpful in working on pupil’s skill base, before then pushing them onto the new papers.

#### Level 3 CORE Maths in Context Solutions to Practice Materials (Edexcel)

(1)
Scanned PDFs of my written solutions to the Practice Materials released by Edexcel to support teaching Level 3 CORE Maths in Context. You can download the Practice Materials here: https://qualifications.pearson.com/en/qualifications/edexcel-mathematics-in-context/mathematics-in-context.coursematerials.html#filterQuery=Pearson-UK:Category%2FTeaching-and-learning-materials These practice materials are a great help, particularly with a current lack of past paper content available due to this being such a new course.

#### The Teacher's Markbook 4th Edition! (9-1 Capable)

(1)
Introducing the Teacher’s Markbook - Making Excel easy! This Excel file is all you need to bring your Markbook fully into the 21st Century dazzling colleagues and students alike. Microsoft Excel is a fantastic tool, but hard to learn, yet this is unnecessary because I have done ALL of the hard work for you. This is now the 4th Edition and appears pretty bug free, ty for the feedback :-) Features: Classwork Markbook, Homework Markbook, Gap Analysis/Traffic Light sheets for Tests and Level Trackers for GCSE 9-1, GCSE A*-U and National Curriculum (3a etc.). The Report Sheet has also been updated giving you suggested attitude/attainment scores for each pupil automatically.

#### 50 Great Youtube Videos (Vol 1) - Tutor/Form/Lesson-Break fillers.

(0)
YouTube has loads of great educational, inspirational, interesting and amusing videos. But finding them takes time, lots of time. I have spent the last few months trawling through for some of the very best videos that should draw the attention of your students for a form/tutor time or an assembly or just a break in the lesson. There are various categories: History, Geography, Engineering, English, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Sport, World affairs, Music, Weird &amp; Wonderful, Funny, Food, Animals and Art. I have picked videos that I hope will either entertain, educate or inspire discussion. This could be the perfect solution for those 5-10 minute time fillers that we all have during the week. I will be continuing to search for more videos and will post a Volume 2 as soon as it is ready, it may take another few months again however to ensure all the videos are a high enough standard.

#### 2019 End of Term Summer Quiz

(6)
This will be my third year of Summer Quizzes on TES, trying hard to make those last few lessons of the year run as smooth as possible for the lowest price. The quiz follows the usual structure, including a Picture Round, 12 Months, Film, General Knowledge, Music, Maths (yes…Maths…so it’s totally educational when your HoD pops by…) and following last year’s Twitter battles, this year it’s Instagram Battles. The Quiz is aimed at Secondary School Age and should last a full lesson. Answers are provided along with an answers sheet that pupils can fill out if you wish. Keep an eye out for offers, I will do an early bird offer to give you the opportunity to buy at the lowest price TES will allow. Also included are detailed information on the copyright information of all images used. If you have any issues with media playback for example feel free to drop me an email and I will do my best to sort it out for you: thomas.payne@midkent.ac.uk

#### Maths Exam Advanced Information Topic Questions for Revision

(1)
This resource was originally created for the Summer 2022 exam series. I took the EDUQAS Foundation topic list and provided example questions for each specific topic. Obviously advanced information is now not available for exams, however, I think this resource is still a highly useful collection of questions organised by both topic and paper as well as suggesting difficulty ratings. Students can use this to help prepare for their exams. Although this document was specific to the EDUQAS exam board, note that the EDUQAS, Edexcel, AQA, OCR GCSE Maths exam board syllabus’ are very similar, so would certainly still be highly relevant for each. File attached as PDF and Word for flexibility of use. Update Answers now also included and a couple of minor errors corrected.

#### Level 3 CORE Maths in Context Lessons Ch5-8

(16)
As promised here are the other lessons I have made that run alongside the ‘Edexcel Level 3 Maths in Context Project Book’ for Core Maths. There is one PPoint for each Investigation in the textbook from Chapters 5-8. Remember answers to the textbook questions are available for free here: http://www.pearsonschoolsandfecolleges.co.uk/secondary/Mathematics/16plus/EdexcelCoreMathsMathematicsincontext/Try/FreeSamplesAndEvaluation.aspx Unfortunately as it currently stands I am not teaching CORE maths in the coming year, therefore time that I was going to spend brushing these resources up and putting together the last few chapters will need to be used for other things. Apologies therefore if there are mistakes in these resources or they are a bit lacking in comparison to the previous ones. Do note that I haven’t given up altogether on these resources, I still plan on tidying these up and improving them and releasing resources for Ch9-12 in the future.

#### Report Writer - Microsoft Excel (create you own templates)

(0)
Hoping to make Excel easy! Here is a spreadsheet that allows you to create your own report templates and then merge them together for your students. I have done all the hard bits for you, you simply write the templates, then put in the student names and bits of data you wish to include and then pick the template/s you wish to apply to that student and the report will automatically generate. The spreadsheet is fully adaptable and should work for many different scenarios. I have also written a short guide for anyone who needs it. This is the third resource in a little series of spreadsheets I have been producing recently. First one: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-12645342 Second one: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-12651600

#### ChatGPT + Excel Report Writer

(1)
Let AI do the hard part of writing reports! With this spreadsheet you can quickly copy over your student names, attendance, grades and target grades etc. Then provide three short descriptors for each student, could be a single word, could be a sentance. The last cell populates with an instruction you can copy into chat gpt which will return a report for that student. You can then refine that report either by asking chat gpt to modify it or manually yourself.

#### Tests Markbook - (Built-in analysis) Excel spreadsheet

(0)
Hoping to make Excel easy! Here is a fully functioning Spreadsheet to record test scores for all of your students. You can include multiple classes and even multiple tutors. The spreadsheet also offers in-built analysis of the data, by class, by tutor or even by student. I have done all the hard bits for you, however, particularly for the analysis section you may want to read the very short guidance attached to understand how it works and how you can use it :-) This is the second resource in a little series of spreadsheets I have been producing recently. First one: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-12645342 Third one: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-12653202

#### Register Markbook - Attendance (Built-in Analysis) Excel spreadsheet

(0)
Hoping to make Excel easy! Here is a fully functioning Register to keep track of the attendance of all of your students. You can include multiple classes and even multiple tutors. The spreadsheet also offers some analysis of the data, by class or by tutor. Although I have done all the hard bits for you, it will still take a little understanding to get up and running (5mins tops). So I have written a short guide to take you through it. This is the first in a little series of spreadsheets I hope to produce over the next few months. Second one: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-12651600 Third one: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-12653202
