Study Guides Available:

CGP revision guide - available from the maths staffroom £6.50

Extra parental support

  • Spelling tests of key words

  • Test times tables and mental arithmetic

  • Ask students to explain HOW they have worked something out

  • Make posters of important formulae and facts and test recall of these

  • All students should have the latest Casio calculator (available in most supermarkets and stationers) and will ideally have a maths equipment set including a protractor and a pair of compasses
