Welcome to www.BennettMaths.com
The aim is simple, to create a positive learning experience for all students, and get them Maths-confident!
I will do this through the sharing of resources, such as #Super8s and Problem Solving papers.
The majority of content on this website is aimed at providing the best support possible for the new GCSE Mathematics 2017 Examination. From September 2017, there will be a new feature to the website, KS2 maths revision booklets aimed at providing the best support possible in the run up to the national curriculum tests (SATs).
Below you will find a brief introduction to each section and how it could be of benefit to you.
The #Super8s section of the website is divided into each branch of mathematics that is to be tested on the new GCSE specification.
Each of the individual sections (Number, Algebra, Ratio, Geometry, Probability and Statistics) is then divided into sub-parts that match the specifications released by the exams boards. Each subpart has a worksheet with answers provided.
The reason behind this approach is to aid teachers with the planning, specifically around the new topics to be tested, but also to give students a platform to revise from.
The Problem Solving Papers are exactly what it says on the tin. A whole paper devoted to problem solving.
The reason for creating these resources is pure and simple down to the increase in AO2/AO3 questions, and the reluctance of students to attempt these questions.
Throughout my career I have noticed a need for quality new problem solving questions, and I feel that these papers are exactly what we as teachers need.
The Revision Mats have been created to assist teachers and students with their revision.
Each one of the revision mats is aimed at a particular grade (e.g. 1-9). The reason for this is so that students can focus their revision on work that reflects their target grade. Thus allowing them to see exactly what is expecting of a student of their ability.
As the website continues to grow and we are closing in on exam season, I urge all teachers to encourage their students to follow the twitter page as to keep up to date with all the latest content.
The twitter page will also be the first place to hear about the new updates and new resources coming to the website. Such as new #Super8s, new Problem solving papers and more recently new revision mats! Plus many more new features that are set to be released throughout the year.
