This new resource has been written to cover the new AQA Entry Level Certificate Maths. It follows the format of the previous editions but has the following key changes.
A more varied questioning style within the resource is used which will help to familiarise students with the style of questioning used in the ‘Externally Set Tests’ provided by AQA. Some questions now require a simple ‘justification’ of an answer suggesting a need for evidence of ‘working’ which has not been necessary in the previous specifications. Elements of Functional Maths and Problem solving, all at an appropriate level, are included to match the changes in the specification and again this will help to prepare students for the ‘Externally Set Tests’.
The Level 3 sheets have been written and clearly annotated to match the new syllabus which no longer requires extensive evidence of Level 1 and Level 2 work for a student working at this level. A student may benefit from working through all of the worksheets in a given unit but when time is short, successful completion of the Level 3 sheets will ensure coverage of the necessary outcomes.
The resource has been written based on the new assessment outcomes listed in the syllabus and all worksheets are clearly annotated to indicate the unit and outcome(s) covered.
The volume covers all 8 of the units in the new specification. Materials included for Unit 8 are merely for additional practice for students and may not be submitted as part of the Entry Level Certificate Portfolio. The collection has been developed so that it can be used in a very flexible manner, catering for the needs of individuals and groups. The task sheets can be used singly, grouped together in booklets or bound as a whole resource depending on your need and preferred way of working.
Answer sheets and a student record (which may be submitted with the portfolio as a checklist of outcomes achieved) are included to support teacher assessment, recording and reporting.
The resource is being widely used by schools and has received considerable feedback for its clear, easy to use structure.
The sheets has been written by a practicing teacher and examiner and are structured to develop pupils’ skills and test pupils on all areas of the new specification.
Once purchased, the CD can be freely copied and networked throughout the school.find out more
