  • Brushing up at revision time

What do teachers say about this resource? (11744, 11745, 11746, 11747, 11748)

Nice to see a focus on maths skills other than equation input and rearrangement. Gives some dedicated time and space to specific aspects of maths as applied to physics – some examples for students to refer to. Good coverage of and focus on softer mathematical skills that are often neglected/assumed as given.

C Knight, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

Fairly comprehensive, covering a wide range of numeric skills. I liked the many examples for practice use plus worked examples.

R Woodman, Head of Science & Peer Reviewer

There is a lot of good content here. Students should be able to work through the resource independently
