**additional**resources which are specifically for GCSE 9 - 1.

**Practice papers**

All four awarding bodies have published numerous sets of practice papers. Given that the differences between exam board specifications are minimal, we are now able to use 9 - 1 practice papers from every exam board.

Don't forget that old GCSE papers - including intermediate tier papers - are still helpful too.

If this isn't enough, then don't worry - there are plenty more practice papers available. Thanks to @Maths_Master for drawing my attention to the practice papers produced by Churchill Maths. Much like Solomon Press products, these papers are reliable and high quality. For £180 + VAT you can buy 15 practice papers for Higher and 15 practice papers for Foundation. The Higher tier papers are particularly good for stretching students who are working at a Grade 8 or 9. You can check out their free sample papers here. They're pretty challenging.

ZigZag Education also sells packs of practice papers - for £389 you can buy a pack of 30 practice papers for Higher and 30 practice papers for Foundation. That will keep your students busy! Sample papers are available on their website.

For £6 students can buy a pack of 6 practice papers from CGP. Practice paper books are also available to buy.

**Revision by topic**

Topic tests provided by AQA and Edexcel (through All About Maths and the Emporium respectively) are really helpful. OCR's check in tests are good too.

Maths Genie continues to be a very user-friendly website (I recommend it to my A level students). It has been updated for GCSE 9 - 1 so you'll find exam style questions on new topics plus practice papers.

Corbett Maths also has exam style questions, including new GCSE topics.

Also, don't forget that Mel at justmaths.co.uk has pulled together GCSE 9 - 1 specimen questions by topic. I use these a lot in my teaching at the moment.

Keep an eye on JustMaths and Corbett Maths between the GCSE exams because they will probably produce 'best guess' papers after Papers 1 and 2 have been taken place.

**Resources to purchase**

There are loads of resources that your students can buy through Amazon. I imagine that schools might buy some of these resources for their Pupil Premium students. CGP have summarised the content of their extensive range here. Pearson has a range of revision products too, as does Collins and Scholastic.

**Revision cards**

9 - 1 revision cards are available to buy from the following sources:

Flash cards can be downloaded for free from tannermaths.co.uk.

**Aimed at Grade 9**

Around 3% of the cohort will get a Grade 9. I like it that there is a new grade that identifies the country's best mathematicians, much like the A* at A level. Here are some resources for students working at this level:

- There are revision workbooks for 'Grade 9 targeted exam practice' here.
- There are three 'Grade 9' booklets here at Bland.in.
- Pixi Maths has a Grade 9 booklet here.
- m4ths.com has Grade 9 resources here.

**More resources**

Here are some more general revision resources that I've collected:

- Maths4Everyone has topic booklets and topic review sheets.
- Steve at m4ths.com has created a 9 - 1 GCSE Help Book. He has also shared a help sheet and tracking sheet for Foundation students.
- Crashmaths.com has 9-1 practice papers and other resources. Their higher revision maze is brilliant.
- Dr Frost has a collection of full coverage revision worksheets by topic.
- On MathsBot.com you'll find GCSE questions, revision grids and practice papers.
- Edexcel has a poster of formulae to learn - thanks to @MaxTheMaths for sharing his related gap fill activity here. My adaptation of this formula quiz is available here. I have also made a units quiz so students can check they know their unit conversions.
- Access Maths has a page full of lovely 9 - 1 revision activities including revision mats, relays and mazes.
- I've collated a large collection of revision clocks - these were particularly popular in summer 2016. The idea works well for any qualification and age group.
- PixiMaths has a collection of GCSE 9 - 1 booklets and other revision resources on the revision page of her website
- Sandra from MathsBox has shared a free Foundation Revision Relay and Higher Revision Relay. She has also shared two lovely Big Mistake activities: one for Foundation and one for Higher.
- Foundation students can practise key skills in these helpful booklets from @SK18Maths.
- Adam Smith (@Adam_SmithMaths) and I created two Higher GCSE workouts. These take a good 45 minutes and are very 'print budget friendly'. @onechriswhite created a tip sheet to go with the calculator workout.
- I also made four shorter Breakfast Revision Workouts for Higher GCSE. These are for warming up brains on the morning of a GCSE exam. And in a slightly differently format, I have a set of Non Calculator Breakfast Warm Up activities and Calculator Breakfast Warm Up activities for both Foundation and Higher tier.
- Nikki (@mathszest) has shared a warm up PowerPoint aimed at students targeting a Grade 6. It’s a mixture of reminders and questions.
- Chris White (@onechriswhite) created a revision activity for Foundation and Higher called 'Don't Be Silly'. It covers 25 marks worth of questions that students might make silly mistakes on.
- Onmaths.com is a website where students can complete practice papers online.
- Mr Chadburn (@mrchadburn) has shared some good quality GCSE revision checklists.
- Mel from Just Maths has made some useful 'Preparing for Your Maths Exam' slides containing last minute exam tips and information for students.

DeleteRecently I found a blank formula sheet which was great for checking which formula the students could remember. It was based on the edexcel sheet and called a formula quiz but I can't find it again. Can anyone help?
