Free Resource: GCSE Big 20
A free resource to use with your Year 11s in preparation for their Maths GCSE
This week we have been working on a free resource to support your Year 11 students in the build-up to their GCSE Maths exams called... the GCSE Big 20!
What the heck is the GCSE Big 20, I hear you say?Well, it is a series of 20 short quizzes focussed around topics where our data suggests students hold key misconceptions. We have carefully chosen questions to draw out any existing misconceptions so students can receive support before their exams.
But the GCSE Big 20 is even better than that because each quiz comes complete with our free, on-demand support. So, if students are struggling with a question, they can watch a worked example and try a follow-up question. Or they can engage in some fluency or intelligent practice. And then when they have nailed the topic, they can take on some of our lovely stretch and challenge material to deepen their understanding. All of this is 100% free.
There are two GCSE Big 20s available:
GCSE Big 20 Foundation - for students sitting the GCSE Foundation tier
GCSE Big 20 Crossover - for students sitting either the Foundation or the Higher tier, with a focus on those topics that appear on both
