Our maths department have collated this handy list of resources your child can use to revise maths. All pupils have been emailed with these links so please do talk to them about which ones they are using.
Year 11 pupils have been emailed logins and passwords for these sites
This will allow them to do daily quizzes based on the new spec – which they have been set by their class teacher. The easy way to do these questions instead of logging on a computer is to download the app onto their phones.
This allows you to practise exam questions, set but their class teacher. This contains practice exam questions for them to use and have access to at home.
This will allow them to watch tutorial videos on how to do certain topics.
This provides quizzes and activities to specific topics as part of their revision. It also has fill in the blanks and other activities too. The login is the same as they would use for their science lessons and all they do is access the maths area of the website.
Pupils know their Barr Beacon username and password. If they don’t, they just need to speak to their maths teacher. This will give them access to all the new specification material. It also has the grade associated (in some cases this is the old style grade so be careful). There are guided lessons and worksheets to complete as well as revision tests known as booster packs.
These websites are open access and available to everybody
This is the new version of BBC Bitesize which has been updated with the resources for the new specification. It has guided run throughs on techniques, video clips, activities and tests to complete. This covers all topics on the new GCSE specification.
These are a collection of graded workbooks formed of past exam questions and split into grades and topics (be careful as they are in old grades – the new grade equivalent can be found at the bottom on maths genie). They have the answers and videos to explain each of the booklets once they have been attempted also.
This website gives you a while variety of resources from past exam papers (remember these are the old specification papers) to “walking and talking notes”. It also has revision notes on the majority of topics and includes a lot more. It is well worth a look around to see what is available.
This website indexes a whole series of help video tutorials which are available online from mathscast.
This will give your child 10 quick questions which are checked every time that they answer a question on any topic which they choose from the specification.
This gives them revision notes on any topic. It was originally aimed at pupils in the USA so some of the topics will have different names and slightly different grammar and contexts so be careful when using this website.
This is labelled as interactive maths and attempts to link the concepts we learn in the classroom to those which exist in the real world.
The GCSE revision tab is particularly useful and has revision notes and model answers with questions along with questions for your child to attempt and then also the solutions for these questions.
This is a version of past exam papers, which will be marked for you online.
This has a range of practice papers and a section called 5-a-day where you can get 5 questions for every day of the year.
