    GCSE Maths Revision Topic a Day

    With the first maths exams now less than a month away, some of the maths volunteers have put together some maths questions on a variety of topics to help you prepare for your maths GCSE.:woo: The questions are aimed at the higher paper and hence some will be easier than others as they target between grades 4 and 9.

    For each of the 44 days between May 1st and the final exam a topic will be covered and we will share one question for this. After this anyone is welcome to answer the question (using spoilers please!), and share their own questions as long as they stick to the topic (and if it's reaching beyond the spec, please go to the grade 9 questions thread instead) The solution to the previous question will be posted the next day with the question.

    Below are a list of the topics we'll be following:
    Topic List
    1/5/2018 - Standard form
    2/5/2018 - Congruence
    3/5/2018 - Estimate powers and roots

    10/5/2018 - Plans and elevations
    11/5/2018 - Real life graphs
    12/5/2018 - Compound units
    13/5/2018 - Vectors
    14/5/2018 - Algebraic Manipulation
    15/5/2018 - Expanding three brackets /Factorising harder quadratics
    16/5/2018 - Algebraic Proof
    17/5/2018 - Quadratic simultaneous equations
    18/5/2018 - Solving linear/quadratic inequalities including graphically
    19/5/2018 - Successive transformations

    3/6/2018-Functions (including composite functions and inverses)
    4/6/2018-Geometric progressions / exponential growth and decay
    5/6/2018-Cumulative frequency
    6/6/2018-Volume of cone/sphere Converting area and volume units
    7/6/2018-Upper/lower bounds, error intervals, giving answers to "an appropriate degree of accuracy"
    8/6/2018-Sine rule / cosine rule / area formula
    9/6/2018-3D trigonometry
    10/6/2018-Speed/time graphs (including finding acceleration and distance from the graph)/Rates of change / estimating gradients /Estimating areas under curved graphs
    11/6/2018-Relative frequency / experimental probability

    As you may have noticed, not all topics are covered and so it is not recommended you use this as a list for your topic revision entirely. However, it could form part of your revision If you want a complete, printable checklist, you can use this one, written by Notnek :https://drive.google.com/file/d/1eTN...SWLALi3DG/view
