^{th}gems post. This is where I share some of the latest news, ideas and resources for maths teachers.

**1. GCSE Revision Resources**

I have a page dedicated to GCSE revision resources which had a few new additions last week:

Dr Austin has started making full coverage revision grids. These are sets of increasingly challenging grids for both number and algebra, with more on the way.

Finally, these aren't new either but it's the right time of year to remind you: I have sets of revision mats and breakfast revision resources that were widely used pre-Covid. They're all free on TES.

**2. Level 2 Further Maths Revision**

Thanks to @AMercerMaths for sharing a couple of revision clocks (download here and here) for AQA's Level 2 Further Maths.

And this isn't new, but @DrBennison has GCSE Further Maths warm ups for Paper 1 and Paper 2 on his blog.

I'll be making use of these once I've finished teaching the specification - three lessons to go!

**3. A Level Resources**

- @ECR_Maths made an activity with a mixture of integration and differentiation questions.
- @mrsouthernmaths shared some Year 12 Revision Sheets on his blog a while ago.
- @markywillis63 shared GeoGebra Apps for A-Level Mechanics including Further Maths, designed to help students visualise mechanics problems.
- @karenshancock shared a couple of Further Maths revision resources: a set of revision papers and some flashcards with formulae to learn.
- Last year, @DrBennison shared a number of A level revision resources on his blog for AQA A level Maths and Further Maths.

**4. PowerPoint Tips**

I enjoyed reading @nathanday314's excellent PowerPoint tips which support maths teachers making resources using PowerPoint.

Here are a couple of other recent shares from Nathan:

**5. Correlation**

Thank you to @TimBrzezinski for sharing an excellent ready-to-use GeoGebra activity for exploring the correlation coefficient.

**Update**

I'll leave you with some lovely maths games recently shared on Twitter. I have enjoyed playing all three of these!

@divbyzero shared a game created by ChatGPT: Sumplete. Each row and column have to add to the given number. Click a cell once to place an X, twice to place an O, and a third time to have no X or O. They come in grids of different sizes.

@Philmaths314 shared Number Hive which I've downloaded for my daughters to play. It's a really fun times tables game that is suitable for all ages. They've also shared a paper version for schools to use.

@El_Timbre shared Digits from the New York Times. The interface is great - it's a Countdown-style game (i.e. make a target number) but you can easily undo steps, which helps builds confidence.

Have a great week everyone!

Great selection here. I fondly recall using the early Revision Mats with my Y11 students several years ago before I left the profession; they were good to add variety to the practice chore for students throughout the year.
