Strategy 8: Maths Battles
Revise for Success Maths Battles is a set of resources to get students working collaboratively...and a little competitively.
Used as lesson starters or as part of a structured revision session, each A4-size activity sheet will pit a student against a partner to solve some problems on a particular topic. There are 24 topics in the book. Questions are different on half of the sheet but designed to be of matching difficulty. Scoring is like football – a win is 3 points, a draw is 1 point and a loss is 0. It would be possible to run a small competition, to engage a whole class – in a World Cup style format perhaps, where there are group stages and play offs, so that all students are engaged until the very late stages.
Perfect also for two friends - or twins - working together at home!
Areas covered: All topics that comprise the foundation stage of GCSE.
