What do teachers have to say about this resource? (7744)

An intelligent and useful resource... Crucially [it] is a resource to support independent work of the GCSE student... The explanations prior to the assessments are well written and straightforward enabling students to self study. Questions are appropriate... I would use this resource as a self study pack. I see it as a useful maths challenge style homework activity... This learning can then be tested with in class activities to ensure the increased mathematical skill content has been mastered... the entire document could easily be issued as a series of homework challenges / as a series competency exercises prior to the course / as revision material for the quantitative elements... A good resource that offers more than mere GCSE quantitative coverage. It is a workbook. A self study guide. A potential source for A level students having difficulty with some quantitative calculations.'

D Holland, Head of Economics, Independent Reviewer

A comprehensive examination of the quantitative skills needed for GCSE Economics. It is a useful revision tool that can be used by the individual student as part of his or her revision programme or it can complement the material used by the classroom teacher to support learners when covering quantitative economic problems... encouraged students to see how quantitative economic calculations can be used in the examination... It could be used as a workbook style support to challenge student knowledge and understanding.
