There are 7 exercise sheets and an examination-style assessment test, each with answers included in this unit.
Our resources apply the principles of Mastery throughout, creating a rich and deep learning experience. Find out more about Mastery with our quick guide.
This unit deals with measures used in mathematics, including scales, 2D representations, perimeter, area and volume. At the start of the unit, estimation is considered in context, with sensible degrees of accuracy discussed and the use of approximations to estimate the value of a calculation explored. Making sensible estimates and choosing the right units is discussed next. With elegant graphics to support the learning, students discover scale drawings and bearings, using reasoning to solve contextualised problems. Plans and elevations are met, focusing on the skills needed to draw and interpret 2D representations of 3D objects, including the use of isometric drawings. The unit then moves on to shapes; finding the perimeter, area and volume of shapes such as triangles, trapezium, parallelogram, cuboids, prisms and composites of these shapes. Standard formulae for area and volume are introduced and used, and these skills are applied through graded questions with reasoning and problem-solving tasks involving perimeter, area and volume.

What people say...
The format and structure of material is logical and clear. I particularly enjoyed the inclusion of Exam Tips which offer students important advice for the examination.

I am really pleased with the resources for the Unit 8 'Crude Oil and Fuels' so far. As I am non-specialist teaching the new specification of AQA GCSE Chemistry for the first time this year, these resources have been invaluable to me. The presentations are thorough and well illustrated. The teacher guide and power point presentation leads you through the topics logically. This has been particularly useful as I have been tasked with picking up this course with students that are already midway through their GCSE and the commentary has provided me with useful guidance of what students should have covered in earlier modules and there are also activities that recap earlier learning. The fact that the resources are so thorough and there is a WS and HWK for every lesson, has saved me a huge amount of planning time as there is already plenty for students to do. All I have had to do is add a little further differentiated practice as and when my students needed it. I will definitely be looking at buying other modules too.
