Hi all,

As you know, last lesson I allowed you to work on the mixed exercise for Ch4. At the end of the lesson, I gave you the assessment which needs to be completed by next Tuesday.

I gave you a week to complete it for three main reasons:

- To allow you to put
**lots** of effort into it – most of Chapter 4 is GCSE revision – the only new content is skew and using IQR to find outliers. I said that I was setting a target of a 90% class average on this assessment – I truly believe this is possible on a chapter which is mostly GCSE revision.
- To allow you to use Tuesday and Thursday P6s for extra help
- To allow those of you who have missed lessons due to mocks to ensure that you have looked through and understood all of the material

It has been really positive to see how many of you have used the blog and clicked on the links/documents over the last week – keep it up and feedback in the comments if you would like any extra content adding.

Remember, you also have a file check on Friday – you should have notes, annotated exercises and assessments in a sensible order. Your assessments should also be annotated so that you can use them for revision. I know last lesson a couple of the girls who were struggling to remember how to find Q1/Q2/Q3 on discrete/continuous data just took 10 minutes to really read through their textbook notes and take revision notes on the different techniques – I think that this would be a good idea for lots of you.

Remember in other subjects you are expected to read around the topic you are studying – for Maths we expect you to consolidate what you have learnt in lessons – don’t just complete the exercise and expect it to be stuck in your head. Use this poster (you’ll have seen it in every maths classroom) to remind yourself how to learn/revise maths:

See you on Friday,

Mrs Shaw
