Interactive Workout - Further
General Usage Notes
This workout generates random questions from the UK A-level further mathematics syllabus and contains the sorts of pure mathematics typically encountered in the final year of school for those students who specialise in mathematics.
It is very powerful and contains a huge range of topics, including complex numbers, matrices and all aspects of algebra and calculus. It is instant to use and comes equipped with the answers.
There are no time limits, targets or scores: just the opportunity for simple, unpressured practice.
There are many ways in which you can use this resource:
It is ideal for quiet use in the computer room for individual study or revision
You can point students who are having difficulty towards it for targeted practice on a certain question type.
You can suggest that 'high fliers' use the resource to practise their skills, maximise their chances of a good A and improve their own algebraic fluency. They will appreciate this when they arrive at university where a high level of algebraic fluency gives a huge advantage.
You can use the workbook for quick lesson starters. By revising old, previously covered topics the knowledge of students will be kept fresh and will have great benefit on the students' overall mathematical skill.
You can suggest that students about to start university or year 13 use the workbook as a refresher after the holidays.
You can have a go yourself as the teacher if you are teaching new material, feeling a little rusty or simply want to hone your already impressive algebraic skill!
If the workout is to be used repeatedly, suggest that students focus on quick shortcuts or ways to solve different types of problems.
Suggest that different students compare their solution methods. Are they the same? Is one more efficient that they other? What can we learn from each other in this way?
This workout naturally follows on from the topics in the
Interactive Workout Core.
More workbooks are planned. Please do get in touch if you have any comments.
