Edexcel Maths Foundation Topics For Essays

Two years ago I utilised Mel Muldowney's (@Just_Maths) analysis of looking at how often topics occurred on the higher GCSE EDEXCEL papers and produced this for my group, https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/targeted-revision-for-yr-11-11049989. We are using this booklet for our better foundation students and weaker higher students.

It worked really well and has inspired me to produce something similar for those students who we are targeting for a grade 4, or below, this year.

In the next 6 weeks leading up to Easter, sets 2 - 6 will spend one lesson per week on the Summit and their other lesson using Pixi Maths fantastic booklets focusing on key grades. These booklets can be found here, https://www.piximaths.co.uk/revision-materials and are definitely worth utilising with your students.

My current thinking is that after Easter, we shall spend one lesson on Paper 1 skills and the second lesson finishing off the key topics from Pixi Maths booklets and consolidating other topics generated from our students' wish lists!

Please let me know how you find it, especially using my twitter handle @billyads_47

Edexcel Paper 3 – Unseen Topics

*These Checklists and Practice Papers are based on the topics that are “Unseen” or are usually more prominent. It is very important that students recap the entire GCSE course – as there are 3 Papers, it is almost certain that some topics from Papers 1 & 2 will appear on Paper 3.

The Practice Papers are collections of 60+ questions that have not appeared (or as much as usual) and therefore are not aimed to be predict the actual paper, but give practice on the topics that may a good chance of appearing.

These resources are aimed to supplement the usual revision that you would already be doing for Paper 3. Here are revision checklists for the entire GCSE (Higher) and (Foundation)
