2. Vectors Process

It is really generally terrific to see new material on my favourite website MathsPad. They have now concluded their curriculum booklets for all of Calendar year 7, 8 and 9. These booklets are total of good jobs – I use them all the time.
I also enjoy their new free Vectors & Quadrilaterals Worksheets. The concept is to perform out which sort of quadrilateral will be formed if you stick to a sequence of vectors. This delivers observe functioning with vectors whilst prompting contemplating about whether pairs of vectors are equal in size, parallel or perpendicular, and encouraging psychological visualisation. There are two ranges of difficulty.

3. Certification in Further Maths Sources

In the Autumn term @MrsEVCartwright gives her Calendar year 11 learners a revision sheet per 7 days on a subject matter lined so much in the course. Each and every sheet is made up of a recap of the principal concepts and strategies, followed by some concerns to total for research that week. You can down load this source from TES.

I subsequently awarded it a Gem Award for ‘Most Beneficial Resource’ because I use it all the time in my GCSE lesson organizing. @gcse_math has now shared this useful resource on its have web site – If you skipped this previously in the yr, do test it out.
