Revision Clocks Galore

In my last post I wrote about revision clocks - an idea from @teachgeogblog that was shared by @Just_Maths back in October. Check out the hashtag #revisionclock to see these in action in numerous subjects. They are now all the rage in maths. No wonder, given that they are easy to prepare and do a great job of keeping students focused during revision lessons.

The idea is that you set 12 five minute questions that students answer on an A3 clockface. I haven't yet used a revision clock with Year 11 (though lots of people have done so with great success) but I've used revision clocks in a number of A level lessons and have found them to be really effective. In these lessons I set a buzzer to go off every five minutes and at that point I write an answer on the board.

I've received so many tweets about revision clock activities that I thought it would be a good idea to share them here so that everyone can access the resources. This post contains revision clocks for both GCSE and A level


The resource for this tweet is here.

And finally...
Here are template clockfaces for various combinations of timings - for example you might want to do 15 two minute questions followed by 6 five minute questions.

If you make a new maths revision clock resource then please upload it to TES or an online drive and tweet me a link so I can add it to this post. This should save teachers a lot of time in planning revision lessons. Thanks to all who have contributed! The final exam countdown is on...
