Raising achievement in GCSE mathematics

Resource - NRICH


"encourage students to work collaboratively on tasks that encourage them to represent and discuss their mathematics, make connections between topics and select the maths to use to solve problems"

Pair Products

"encourages students to apply an algebraic skill as a strategy for giving a convincing argument."

Symmetry Challenge

"to develop KS 3 pupils Mathematical Processes and Applications and their ability to work in groups ."

Mixing Lemonade, Ratio and Dilutions

"These misconceptions inspire discussion and arguments between students and require them to convince me and their peers of their methods."

Transformation Game

"This is accessible for teachers who are not keen on group work and ‘active’ learning"

Which Quadratic, Parabolic Patterns

"They went on to create their own designs, manipulating equations on Geogebra and developing their understanding of different forms such as x = y2. Some discovered the equation of a circle and continued to explore how to manipulate this to move a circle away from the origin."
