Thinking about practising skills for GCSE, why not create some custom starters?

On **Jonathan Hall’s Test Maker** on MathsBot we could create a test to test many of these skills. Choose the skills you want from the menu, the number of questions, and the initial and final difficulty of the questions on a scale of 1 to 10, also note the Paired Solutions option to show one example with an answer then one to try. An Answer Key is provided for any test you create.

We could also use the many brilliant **GCSE **resources from MathsBot.

Alternatively, using **Transum’s Refreshing Revision**, we could create a custom resource to check some of these skills. The resource allows teachers to select the number of questions and the topics to include; scroll down the page and choose the topics you want from the Concept Selection, it is also possible to drag the panels so your questions are displayed in the desired order. A very nice feature is the fact that you can save a particular selection of topics as the URL for your selection will be generated. Every time you refresh the page you get different revision questions.

Transum has an extensive library of self-checking exercises, so we could easily provide examples on **inequalities** for example. On Transum, there are several ways to search for resources, for example, try:

See on Maths White Board: **Revision Board** – generate a starter based on the Advance Information

On **Interactive Maths Generators** from Dan Rodriguez-Clark (**@InteractMaths**), design your own sets of questions on more than 50 maths topics for your students to practice a variety of skills. There are many customisation options, generally as well as for individual topics. Full instructions are on Dan’s site.
