I’ve just put together a playlist to help students studying for their IGCSE Cambridge 0580 or Cambridge 0607 Maths exams.

Topics 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

For each topic I have chosen a few past paper questions to talk through. Hopefully this should be useful for students sitting their exams in the coming weeks.

IB Standard Level Revision Videos

With the IB SL Maths exams fast approaching here are some video resources to help with revision:

Algebra, Functions, Trigonometry past paper questions

This is a playlist with past paper questions covering:

1) Algebra:arithmetic and geometric sequences and series, logs, binomial expansion,
2) functions: Inverses, completing the square, sketching quadratics and transformations,
3) Trigonometry: triangles, solving trig equations, double angle formulae and transforming trig graphs.

Below are also some great overview videos which cover each of the units in the course. (Note matrices are no longer in the syllabus).

jeopardy

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.
