These are the higher tier grade boundaries for the first four sittings of the new Edexcel GCSE Maths. The first two sets of exams were not at all popular with students but the June 2018 exams were viewed as more reasonable. The grade boundaries were higher but students felt they had more opportunity to demonstrate their skills and knowledge.

I hope that most of you take the opportunity to come along and discuss the possibility of studying A-level Maths with us at Chosen Hill.

In addition, I look forward to discussing A-level Further Maths with those of you keen enough to consider two Maths A-levels.

Both Maths and Further Maths are considered Facilitating Subjects by the top UK universities comprising the Russell Group.

Lesson Objectives:

To be able to:

- Solve linear inequalities.
- Represent linear inequalities on a number line.

The following links are my Year 10 lesson notes on transformations. Reading through them will help you revise transformations:

Translations Reflections Rotations Enlargements

When GCSE questions ask you to estimate the result of a numerical calculation on the non-calculator paper you should proceed as follows:

Round the numbers in the problem to 1 significant figure before performing calculations.

Be careful if you have a number less than 1 for a denominator. For example, if the denominator = 0.4 then multiply the numerator and denominator by 10 so that you end up dividing by the whole number 4.

Please complete this week and self-mark from the solutions provided.

When asked to use your calculator to evaluate an expression, use brackets to group terms in a numerator, terms in a denominator, and terms under a square root sign. Leaving out brackets risks the order of precedence rules on your calculator causing it to evaluate calculations in an inappropriate order for the question.

Please complete this week and self-mark from the solutions provided.

Four of the following problems require the use of simultaneous Linear Equations but there is an odd one out.
