Data Skill Review

These maths resources include bronze, silver and gold maths tasks for the end of a module or revision. They are ideal for use for students who are in their maths GCSE years, as they are based around exam style maths questions. These resources are to be used as an aid to review maths skills, see how far you can get within an appropriate time limit. (10 - 20 minutes usually). These maths resources should challenge and stretch students on a topic as either pre or post assessment.

The newer skill reviews I have been making try to focus in on the separate AO1 (Calculate), AO2 (Reasoning) and AO3 (Problem Solving) maths Skills. Last year I focused on creating skill review maths worksheets on the new maths GCSE Topics, such as Venn Diagrams and Set Notation. Most maths skill review sheets have answers already provided. However some of the older maths resources don't. If you have a completed set of answers for any of the older maths skill reviews and are happy for me to share them please email them to me.

Data Homework

@DIRT_expert recently introduced to PRET style maths homework's. PRET stands for Practise, Recall, Extend and Think. These maths homeworks are designed to challenge  support students with the knowledge they have gained from maths lessons. My versions can be seen below.  If I don't have what you need more can be found at PretHomework. These PRET maths homeworks are great for embedding skills. There are also opportunities in the stretch sections for students to practise and apply their maths problem solving (AO3) and reasoning skills (AO2). These maths resources also provide opportunities for students to explore their love of maths through miniature maths research tasks. These maths homework resources give students a chance to excel and shine.

Data Worksheets

I have developed my own style of differentiated maths worksheets for lessons which are inspired by the PRET Homework’s. These maths worksheets on algebra are split into several sections. Sometimes it will be relevant for these maths resources to be used over multiple lessons.

Memory – The memory boxes are there to provide students with memory aids or examples. The memory box does not mean necessarily this is the way to start teaching a topic. The maths memory tools support the great teaching within a lesson. Feel free to ignore this box also.

Literacy – Each maths worksheet includes a literacy section. Here students will be asked to recognise key maths words and define them. Alternatively students may be asked to describe a mathematical process. There has been a lot of research carried out which suggests those students who are able to talk about and explain the maths processes often understand and remember larger proportions of the work.

ROK – This stands for Retention of Knowledge. This is a chance for a student to recall their prior maths learning. The maths skills questioned in the retention section give students a chance to practise maths skills they will need to access the lesson. This helps build in a little bit of spaced learning.

Skills – The maths skill sections of the worksheet focus in on the developing new concepts taught on a maths topic. The maths questions often increase in difficulty throughout a skill section. These focus on the maths GCSE exam AO1 calculation skills.

Stretch – These are maths questions designed to stretch and challenge a student. These challenging maths questions interleave topics from other mathematical topics. Stretch questions focus on a student’s ability to mathematically reason (AO2) and problem solve (AO3). These allow students to explore the breadth and depth of a maths topic.
