GCSE Maths Passport Revision Resources

The new maths GCSE passports are a resource designed to encourage students to have independence of their revision. However the maths GCSE passport resources also provides direction for the students about how to revise maths, which maths topics to revise and where to look for maths resources. Commonly students struggle to be able to correctly revise mathematics. Many believe reading through a revision guide is enough no matter how many times you tell the students the need to complete maths questions. 

After a lot of rethinking last year, I decided to take the GCSE maths passport resource one step further. They focus on both numeracy and maths skills. I was lucky enough to be given a little time to be able to develp the new passports when I moved schools last year. We launched them with a very cheesy assembly to year 11 and placed incentives behind the students completing them such as an iPad prize draw for every completed passport. 

The new maths GCSE passport resources are more detailed than ever before. Instead of there being only three passports there are now five. the new maths passports support students with basic numeracy skills up to the complex mathematical concepts. They are seperated into GCSE grades A/A*, B, C1, C2, C3. 

Passport Break Down

Passports A/A*, B and C1  resrouces have been designed to help those students taking higher GCSE maths (specifically edexcel)

Passports C2 (D to C) C3 (G to C) resources have been designed to help those students taking foundation GCSE maths (specifically OCR)

New Maths Passports

Students need to work through each topic. The maths passports resource link to both support videos and practise questions. (These are links to Corbett Maths, Hegarty Maths and Diagnostic Questions)

The students need to provide evidence thet have done these tasked and answered the exam style question on the maths passport. If you are happy a student has completed the topic then you sign it off. This allows you to have a way to check up on the students revision and there revision practices.

Tracking Progress

I like to keep track of students in a simple spreadsheet of which maths passports and topics they have completed. This also gives me data I can easily provide to parents and tutors to help them support the student.

 

 

Traveling Quizes 

Each new maths passports also includes four traveling quizes. The categories are;

  • Number 
  • Geometry
  • Data Handling 
  • Algebra

These provide students opportunities to attempt topics which may not have appeared in the passport but which are just as relevant. 

AIR MILES

So it's time for students to collect their maths air miles by completing the new maths gcse passport revision resources.

  • Danielle - thank you so much for the energy, effort and ideas you throw out to us. I am in my last few years of teaching, but never stop looking for new applications amd ideas. You are an inspiration :-) I have passed your link and so many of your ideas/resources on to others in my faculty and at other schools. You better come to Australia for some conferences - I'll always have a spare room & a wine free.

  • Wow thank you very much for your very kind words. I wish I could come to some Australian conferences, I've never been asked to speak abroad yet but never say never. I would love to visit places around the world, would you believe I've never been on a plane.

    I hope your last few years of teaching are enjoyable and memorable.
