Resources for GCSE (9-1) mathematics can be found on Teach Cambridge under the 'Teaching' section. Access to Teach Cambridge is restricted to teachers. Please speak to your Exams Officer if you do not have a Teach Cambridge account. More details can be found here.
- Three different types of Check In - 10 questions (plus an 11th extension question) on a specific topic, with a RAG grid to record performance. The three types of Check In reflect the three columns structure of the OCR Specification, where content progresses through ‘Initial Learning’, ‘Foundation tier additional’ and ‘Higher tier additional’. A Complete RAG grid spreadsheet is also available.
- Two types of Section Check In - 20 questions on one of the 12 content areas listed in the Specification, with a RAG grid to record performance. There are 12 Foundation Section Check Ins and 12 Higher Section Check Ins.
- We have editable Curriculum Planners in the ‘Planning’ section, which can be used as Schemes of Work. We have a Year 9 curriculum planner (for any centres wishing to deliver GCSE (9-1) mathematics over three years), plus Foundation tier and Higher tier curriculum planners for years 10 and 11. We also have a one-year version covering the content in a single year.
- Delivery Guides take an area of the specification and look at resources that can be used in teaching. These are separated across three areas, content resources, conceptual resources and contextual resources.
- Activities are each an element which can be used in a lesson on a particular topic for use in classrooms.
- Mapping Guides are in the ‘New to this qualification’ section and show you how the content differs between the new GCSE (9-1) Mathematics and other qualifications.
- Transition Guides focus on how a particular topic is covered at different Key Stages and provide information on the differences in the demand and approach at the different levels. They include a range of suggested teaching activities and a Checkpoint task, for students passing from one Key Stage to the next.
- In collaboration with Cambridge University Press we’ve created a series of topic worksheets for Foundation tier students. They’ve been designed for post-16 resit students to use when revisiting topics, but would also be useful for any Foundation tier student to use in revision. Find them in ‘Post-16 resources’, then go to ‘Topic and check-in tests for post-16’.
- You can use our free ExamBuilder platform to create your own tests and questions papers, and we’ve also created some for you. Look in ‘Quizzes and topic tests’ on Teach Cambridge to find a series of topic tests we’ve created for you.
