Love this maths-related cartoon!

My Year 11 students should find this excellent JustMaths tutorial on quadratic and cubic graphs extremely useful when attempting their JustMaths examination questions on this topic. 

I highly recommend using this website for revision throughout the year and once again, I will be reminding everyone of the student login and password details in my lesson this week.

Check out the official Belmont Community School Maths Department blog using the link above. Features include:

  • Weekly news from the department.
  • Links to teaching plans for all classes in KS3 and KS4 (keep up-to-date with any lessons missed or get ahead of the game!)
  • Links to KS3 vocabulary test presentations (great for revising!).
  • A video guide to using the MathsWatch VLE for all students (featuring Mr Siday, Mr Wood and Mrs Emery!)
  • Revision links, all in one handy place!

New content to be added very soon!

Love this line-up…
