NEW – Applying Skills for Higher GCSE 4-9 Maths Exams
This stand-alone book provides banks of questions which have been written to complement any GCSE resources. The questions focus on assessment objectives AO2 and AO3, ie. reasoning, interpreting, communicating and solving non-routine problems.
There are 28 sets of questions which can be used throughout the GCSE course or as more of a revision aid. They may be tackled initially by groups of students to explore and discuss strategies or worked at individually. The majority of the sets of questions involve a mixture of topics which is essential if the students are to recall and select appropriate techniques. Some exercises are specific to Number, Algebra, Geometry or Statistics only. Ratio and proportion run throughout these. Answers included in the back of the book.
Students find the kind of questions in this book very demanding. The author has tried to provide a reasonable spread of complexity within each unit. Many schools have used units in Part One on a fortnightly basis in Year 10 then units in Part Two on a fortnightly basis in Year 11.
