mathschallenge.net student booklets

I’m a huge fan of the (now dormant, but still online) site mathschallenge.net

It’s full of excellent problems, and the author has organised them into 4 tiers of difficulty as pdfs here

However, the summary pdfs have the answers directly underneath each question, which isn’t ideal.

So I took the answers out for student versions here:

THREE Star Problem Booklet

TWO Star Problem Booklet

One Star Problem Booklet

I use them a lot. The picture below shows printed a4 versions (with the answers) binded, and printed A5 versions (for students) without the answers, the A5 versions are the ones linked above.

  1. These look great.I would be tempted to use the problems individually.How do you use the booklets?How do the stars work?  * Y7,8, ** Y9, 10, *** y11+ **** 6th form ?Many thanks – great resource.

  2. They roughly work out as 1 star KS3, 1 star – 2 star GCSE (Fdn), and 2 – 3 star GCSE (H). 4 star is definitely entirely A Level, due to most of the problems involving A Level topics – I haven’t converted the 4 star into a student booklet as I teach in 11-16 school at the moment. I have used 2 star on Y8 and 9 though, depending on the groups. Often I set a question as ‘extension homework’, which is voluntary.
    There are two students I teach who have their own entire booklet as they are so ridiculously talented at maths.
