This year I am continuing to upload the revision calendars I’ve done during the previous two years. I started these as a response to a desperate need for our then current Year 11s to have some real focus and direction for their mathematics revision leading up to their GCSE exams, I used an idea I’d seen initially on the excellent Just Maths site of a revision calendar. My thinking was, and still is, that the best way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics and long term revision should be about regular practice.

With this in mind I produced monthly revision calendars for both higher and foundation tier GCSE starting in September and running, each month, till April. This year, following feedback from a colleague and a successful trial, I’m adding an extra calendar. It was felt that the foundation calendars were good for preparing those students who probably would do foundation but were on that higher/foundation border and were those looking at gaining a 5 or possibly a 4. These were generally felt to be too challenging for foundation candidates where a 5 (or even 4) maybe out of reach.

This year there will be three calendars each month with full solutions.

HIGHER TIER – this will be useful for those students who definitely will be sitting the higher paper and who are working at grade 6 and above.

FOUNDATION PLUS TIER – this is essentially the old foundation calendars. These would be useful for students who are pushing for 4 or 5. There will be a proportion of questions each month which appear on both this and the higher calendar.

FOUNDATION TIER – this is the new addition and will be useful for those foundation students who are working for grade 4 and below. There will be no higher tier material on them but there will be some crossover with the foundation plus tier.

As always, feedback would be very much welcomed. I will post the calendars each month on this page and also on my blog and highlight them on my twitter feed (@mrchadburn). As always the calendars are free for anyone to use.
