I’ve just put together a couple of playlists to help students studying for their IGCSE Cambridge 0580 or Cambridge 0607 Maths exams, and also their Additional Mathematics Cambridge 0606 exams.

IGCSE Maths Cambridge Playlist:

Videos included are:
1. Number
2. Circle Theorems and angles
3. Algebra
4. Volume
5. Statistics
6. Solving equations using graphs
7. Trigonometry
8. Linear graphs and inequalities
9. Transformations
10. Probability and Venn Diagrams
11. Vectors
12. Functions
13. Sequences
14. Quadratic simultaneous equations, completing the square.
15. Calculus – differentiation to find maximum and minimum points.
16. Solving trig equations and sketching trig graphs.

Videos included are:

1. Indices [Venn diagrams no longer on the syllabus from 2020]
2. Functions
3. Binomial expansion
5. Logs
6. Arc length and sector segments
7. Trig graphs
8. Solving trig equations
9. Factor and remainder theorem
10. Counting principles – permutations and combinations
11. Log graphs
12. Geometric sequences
13. Arithmetic sequences 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.
