Maths

There is work on the maths area of Moodle so please visit. Particularly useful for year 11 for revision.

If students can go onto the MyMaths.co.uk website there is plenty of revision, practice and games for you to do which will make sure that the snow does not mean that your maths learning isn’t neglected. This is particularly important for year 11 with your exams only being 6 weeks away! [Login:tonypandy password:graph1. If you have forgotten your personal login, enter as a guest.]

Year 11 have been given past papers to complete. Try to do as much of the paper as you can and then use MyMaths.co.uk and your revision DVD to look up how to do the questions that you ‘re stuck on.

If you tweet any maths questions on Twitter @TonypandyCCMATH, they will be answered as soon as possible.

KS4 – Make every hour count

Revising

  • First of all, find a good place to work.
  • Draw up a revision timetable – it’s crucial.
  • Do plan it carefully – 30mins of revision, then take a break.
  • Do allow yourself time off.
  • Do divide your time into subjects. Be realistic – you know where your strengths and weaknesses are., Don’t plan to spend all night on one subject.
