**IB Maths Revision with Revision Village**

There’s a really fantastic website been put together to help IB students with topic revision both for during the course and for the end of Year 12 school exams and Year 13 final exams. I would strongly recommend students use this as a resource during the course (not just for final revision in Y13!) There are specific resources for HL and SL students for both Analysis and Applications. Some of my favourite resources include:

1. **Questionbank**

There is a beautifully designed and comprehensive **Questionbank** takes you to a breakdown of each main subject area (e.g. Algebra, Calculus etc) and then provides a large bank of graded questions. What I like about this is that you are given a difficulty rating, as well as a mark scheme and also a worked video tutorial. Really useful!

The **Practice Exams **section takes you to a large number of ready made quizzes, exams and predicted papers. These all have worked solutions and allow you to focus on specific topics or start general revision. This also has some excellent challenging questions for those students aiming for 6s and 7s.

3. **IB Maths Key Concepts Videos**

Each course has a dedicated **video tutorial section** which provides 5-15 minute tutorial videos on every single syllabus part – handily sorted into topic categories.

4. **Full past paper worked solutions **

There is also an incredible video tutorial database which covers every question to every past paper over the last several years. If you are currently studying SL or HL Analysis you can access the old SL and HL syllabus questions and if you are currently studying SL Applications you can access the old Maths Studies questions.

You can also download the Mathematics Studies SL Formula booklet and the Standard Level Formula booklet from here if your teachers haven’t given you a copy.

I would really recommend everyone making use of this – there is a mixture of a lot of free content as well as premium content so have a look and see what you think.

One of my favourite resources is the Jeopardy quizzes. For those not familiar with the game (I think it’s American), it’s a gameshow, where you get to choose questions of different levels of difficulty, from a range of categories. I downloaded the template from TES – it’s a ready-made powerpoint which you can click on to take you to relevant questions, and then another click returns you to the home screen. The class can be split into teams, each team given a whiteboard and (say) 2 minutes to answer a question. Teams with the correct answer get those points for their teams. The challenge round adds a bit more excitement – and you can add any general questions or puzzles – such as dingbats or memory challenges (memorise pi to 10 places etc).

I’ve uploaded 20 of the quizzes onto TES here. There’s 20 different ones – KS3 Algebra, shape and space, fractions and general revision for different levels, GCSE and IGCSE topic specific quizzes on algebra, geometry, trigonometry, number, probability, matrices, functions, algebra 2 and linear graphs. I have also done a small number of IB ones – which I’ll link to when I have a few more to share.

This is a great resource from Mr Collins – Maths Pictionary. What I like about this is that it can be incorporated into a large number of classroom activities – from Jeopardy games, to starters to topic revision. It can also be easily adapted to everything from KS3 to IB – and can be a great way of revising key vocabulary.

Maths CSI is a really good revision resource from Laura Rees Hughes – students work in groups to solve clues, eliminate suspects and arrive at the culprit.
