gf(x) = x^2 -4 (done similarly to a) )

So x^2 -10x+26 = x^2 -4

=> -10x +26 = -4

=> x=3

Thanks for such a useful range of resources – that’s really valuable. I will probably be dipping into this list over the months ahead.

I wonder whether your readers might be interested in the new GCSE maths revision guide I’ve published at https://www.rsleducational.co.uk/blog/blog/47-powerful-gcse-maths-revision-tips-to-try-now .

I’ve tried to make it more comprehensive and actionable than anything that’s out there already: the idea is to give students a range of approaches which might work if others haven’t, as well as introducing some ideas (some of which will be new for many students) about how to approach the lead up to exams and the tests themselves.

Many thanks,

Robert

Thank you both! ]]>

the smallest total would be 4; since each spinner has been spun twice. Even in your video you only used a single spin for each spinner.

It is language that stops students from being successful at probability!

Love your videos.

]]>First of all, many thanks for creating such a good website and set of resources. I am trying to get the kids to use them as much as possible.

The second matter is a little bit sadder.

It is with great regret that I am informing you that Mark Chadwick died of cancer last year. Therefore we will not be having a new Christmaths for this year. His wife is very much keen for his christmaths legacy to continue and would love to see people using it. As you have such a huge following, I was wondering if you could plug it and highlight his website so people have access to the previous years. Unfortunately the answers died with him so people are going to have to work these out for themselves.

Many thanks

Is it possible to create student accounts for all my pupils in bulk. Getting every one of our pupils to set up their own account will take a considerable amount of time and involve alot of chasing up. We are keen to start assigning test as soon as possible.

Many Thanks

]]>Is the SOW available to download or view as a finished article?

I will be required to write the year 7 and 8 SOW soon so i’m looking for as many ideas as possible!

Keep up the good work,

I’m an English and geography teacher by training and inclination, but this year I’ve been drafted in to teach Y9 (English Y8) maths and I’ve been demented for the past month!! I’ve been struggling to follow units of work and remember everything I’ve forgotten ever since I last stepped into a maths classroom.

One thing I find interesting is the idea of teaching slightly different concepts separately; I do this as a matter of course in English with homophones- kids get very confused with them and I find it much more effective to keep the ideas apart.

Many thanks for such an entertaining and informative blog- it’s going to be bedtime reading for the next while ]]>

At about 2:03, you mentioned your ‘current obsession’ is the increasing difficult questions on…..I cant quite make it out as Ed responds just as you mention where ever it is. Would you be able to let me know what that was? Sorry I am not twitter educated or I would ask that way.

Many thanks

I was reading about your lobster game (we call it lobster pots) and I was wondering whether there was an algorithm that gets a reasonable amount of money at the end?

This has been an interest for years and I am entering my last year of sixth form and would like to do as well as possible before I leave.

If there is no algorithm then any advise would be much appreciated.

Thanks a lot.
