My Pie

This is more for me than you, but also a nice reminder to everyone that if I don’t update this site for a while, it’s “because book.”

This pie chart will be a sticky post until I’m finished writing. (it’s here for a while)

The New GCSE #7 Non-Calc Side by Side

Ok, these are the new specimen papers (the last ones have been thrown out essentially!)

Each page is side by side for the 3 exam boards (there’s a fourth exam board, but they have 2 longer papers so the comparison is a bit more difficult, so i’ve omitted them). On hand is Michael Gove to add his own facial commentary. I hold no judgement on any of these papers officially. Make your own minds up.

7 Days of Maths: MathsSandpit.co.uk #1

The new revamped Resource Of The Day is here at last! I will be featuring 7 great resources from one website over the course of 7 days. First up is mathssandpit.co.uk which is run by @Ms_Kmp

The resource I’ve picked for today is this wonderful experimental probability idea. I love it, chiefly because it uses this ridiculously awesome graph paper to record results:

which end up looking a bit like this:

I like that the task is open ended and students decide their own investigation, but mostly, this is all about THAT PAPER!!.
