Welcome to the Mathematics Assessment Project “And I’m calling on our nation’s governors and state education chiefs to develop standards and assessments that don’t simply measure whether students can fill in a bubble on a test, but whether they possess 21st Century skills like problem solving and critical thinking and entrepreneurship and creativity.” President Obama, 1 March 2009.

Pre-exam activities for boosting Maths confidence – Better Maths Last year I wrote about my five columns of exam success and how I like to help students to go into their GCSE Maths exams with their game face on. This year I’m still holding on to those fundamental principles, but I’m changing the way I work with them in the run up to exams. Last year, I started six weeks before the exam and broke the spec into six chunks.

The list encompasses grades K-12 and is chock-full of resources, games, freebies, and innovative programs. GCSE Revision mats - MathedUp! It’s that time of year again where we are in the thick of GCSE revision lessons. Some of this time, quite rightly, should be dedicated to exam paper practice but I find that the repetitiveness of this often leads to stale lessons and it is difficult to monitor how much progress students are actually making. My current group of brilliant, hard working, year 11s are quite mixed ability with some students who are working towards securing a C grade and others aiming for Bs, As and A*s. I have put together a set of graded revision mats (with a bit of help from @climbingjack and @zebfriedman) that cover most areas of GCSE mathematics from F to A* grade. I have had these printed back to back on A3 paper and laminated and are being shared across the department.
