17 ready-to-use photocopiable activities to use with ages 16-18. Paul Hambleton

17 ready-to-use photocopiable activities to use with students over 16 years. A team race is a classic idea - your team wins by answering all the questions correctly in the fastest time! Students enjoy the activity immensely and the quality of learning and discussion taking place is very high.

This second book in the series contains activities based on Advanced Level core mathematics content. It can be incredibly difficult to find interesting resources as alternatives to a textbook, yet the author has found that post-16 students enjoy these activities just as much as younger ones and they are just as effective in developing their learning. They still enjoy the competitive nature of the activities and they promote rich discussions in overcoming misconceptions when tackling the problems in small groups.

Ideal for use in revision or other consolidation exercises.
