MEI, AQA, Edexcel and OCR (also Eduqas, part of WJEC) provide excellent support for teachers. With GCSE and A Level subject content now the same for all the examination boards, we have an excellent library of resources to use irrespective of the specification chosen for public examinations.
(See also 16+ Resources.)
MEI has produced such a valuable collection for teachers with the latest addition to their work on Problem Solving. See their Problem Solving examples and solutions. As well as all the problems and solutions with very valuable suggestions and commentary, MEI has provided a guide to support teachers with the problem-solving content of GCSE (14-16) and A Level (16-18). See also the result of the collaboration between MEI and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET); a wonderful set of maths resources is available.
At A level MEI’s Interactive Scheme of work includes a resource for each section of the course. See also, MEI on integrating technology into your scheme of work which includes many calculator, Desmos and GeoGebra tasks.
