Fundamentals Test – Set A

Great for quick recapping and could be used for prep/homework...

K  Martin, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

Perfect in a mixed ability setting – for the use at the end of teaching.

Designed to test all key areas of each topic!

  • Focuses on core skills with simple numbers and contexts
  • Students show their understanding of key ideas – motivating for weaker students
  • Reveals fundamental knowledge, skill or language weaknesses

Challenge Test – Set A

3 levels makes it easy to differentiate

R Clark, Head of Maths & Happy Customer

Perfect for top ability students – for the use at the end of teaching.

Designed to test all key areas of each topic!

Expert Test – Set A

Provided real challenge and would be great for exam revision

K  Martin, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

Perfect set-up before tackling exam papers – for the use at the end of the course.

Designed to prepare for exam success in this topic.

  • 75% exam-style questions

The way the topic tests go from Fundamentals to Challenge to Expert really builds student confidence

Set B: 2nd chance add-on tests
  • Paired ‘second chance’ duplicate – mirroring the first but with different numbers – allowing resits, reinforcement and greater success
  • Can be ordered when you have ordered Set A – or order all together for group discounts!

The paired idea works really well for student confidence… and encourages them to really reflect on their feedback from set A… they see progress

Detailed clear solutions with Tips, Alternative Methods and Technique boxes.

The solutions were excellent, really clear and helpful, with lots of concise notes... extremely useful for students who want to work independently

What do teachers say about this resource? (8927, 8931, 8943, 8947, 8959, 8963)

A very effective and helpful resource. Just what we needed ... It is well written, and allows for effective practice for Year 13 students ... The duplicate sets of tests allow for effective preparation of similar questions, followed by a closely matched test ... The quality of the questions by the ZigZag authors is excellent ... It is very good value for money, and a useful tool for motivating pupils and monitoring their progress ... It is a strong match for the Edexcel A Level specification, with question style and difficulty that fits the real thing

E Clark, Head of Maths & Customer

An extremely useful bank of differentiated questions ... I kept the fundamental set of questions available to the students to make use of for revision in the study room with the answers ... I set the challenge set for revision homework or standard homework ... I used the bank of expert questions to make assessment papers for testing in class ... The wide range of questions allows students the practice required ... Having the fundamental set and answers in their study room encourages independent study ... Useful resource which saves valuable time

Realistic, confidence building assessment of their pure maths understanding... It can work as assessment or a homework as needed, and the annotated mark schemes make it easy to use with students.

– S Marriott, Head of Maths & Customer

Useful to use [the Fundamental tests] with lower ability students ... They tend to find this very challenging and this helps them access it better ... It's differentiated very well and graduated well across the resources. I know that every student will be able to answer some questions; while the top students will still find the end questions on Fundamentals interesting ... These questions are so much more accessible than textbook questions; in an international school I had attempted to set "mixed exercises". Some students weren't able to access content at all, scoring 'zero' routinely. I know that won't happen on these Fundamental worksheets when set for homework or as a test ... All students can "access" it - it's so helpful for helping our lower ability students 'across the line' with E/D questions ... The topic tests are incredibly well-designed - and very well differentiated

S Harrison, Teacher & Customer

Very excited to receive it - so very suitable for our need... It's all contained, no additional books necessary... Gives a confidence boost going through the stages... Confidence is really important - and it gives confidence! Matches Edexcel perfectly.

M Qume, Parent & Happy Customer

Exactly what I was looking for. ... The challenge questions allow me to provide work to stretch the majority of my class in preparation for assessment... great revision materials and end of unit assessments ... excellent differentiation and to stretch students
