I know there are a lot of maths teachers and tutors on here, so I thought I'd ask for your help.
This year I sat my maths GCSE and got a 9. My nephew is sitting his next year, and I've agreed to help him as he's concerned he won't achieve a pass by the end of the year. Are there any good free resources online I should be aware of? (I believe he's sitting foundation.)

If you sat this year and got a 9, which resources did you use to get it?

To be honest, I didn't do that much revision, and most of what I did use was only relevant to higher.

Try to put him in for higher - trust me. He'll be able to achieve a 7 or 8 or a 9. I will send you some good resources to go with him. This is what I used and what I helped to tutor my friends with and they are doing well and are on track for a 9 next year:


Before we get started, here are some sites:Mathswatch (your teacher gave you your login I think) - https://vle.mathswatch.co.uk/vle/Mathsgenie (has videos, question booklets for every topic; do all grades including 9) - http://www.mathsgenie.co.uk/gcse.htmlCorbettMaths (has videos, questions, textbook practice, etc) - https://corbettmaths.com/contents/Examsolutions (has videos; his site is being fixed) - https://www.examsolutions.net/gcse-maths/Hegartymaths (videos) - https://www.youtube.com/user/HEGARTYMATHSEdexcel papers (has 9-1 papers and past spec papers; do all of them for practice) - http://www.mathsgenie.co.uk/papers.htmlAQA specimen papers (do only higher) - https://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/mathematics/gcse/mathematics-8300/assessment-resourcesCGP Papers - https://www.amazon.co.uk/New-GCSE-Maths-Practice-Papers/dp/1782946616/ref=pd_sim_14_1?_encoding=UTF8&p sc=1&refRID=2F5T3BD7MTEDC268GDAZBooks:CGP 9-1 Guide - https://www.amazon.co.uk/New-GCSE-Maths-Revision-Guide/dp/1782943951/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=150266928 1&sr=8-1&keywords=cgp+maths+guide+aqaCGP 9-1 Exam Workbook - https://www.amazon.co.uk/GCSE-Maths-Exam-Practice-Workbook/dp/1782943943/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=150266930 3&sr=8-5&keywords=cgp+maths+exam+workbo okCGP 9-1 GRADE 9 Workbook (has nice questions; suggested if you're aiming for a 9 which you should) - https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Books/GCSE-Mathematics-Grade-Targeted-Exam-practice-workbook/1782944168/ref=pd_sim_14_3?_encoding=UTF8&p sc=1&refRID=RJ07CABHT067CT2K99T6Do this for every topic and repeat:

- watch videos of that topic (let's call it topic X) from: mathswatch (do their worksheets and interactive questions), mathsgenie (watch their videos and do their worksheets), corbettmaths (watch their videos; do their questions and textbook exercises, examsolutions, & hegartymaths (do mathswatch worksheets)
- go to topic X on your CGP guide and do their questions at the bottom of the page/end of topic
- go to topic X on your CGP exam practice workbook and do the questions and obviously mark it
- go to topic X on your CGP grade 9 workbook and do the questions and mark it

Repeat for all higher topics

Then:- sit the Edexcel papers (all of them; old and new spec)
- sit the CGP 9-1 practice papers
- sit the specimen papers

Then you should be getting grade 9 top marks. Let me know if you want any help Image
