KS3-4 applets

We’ve also added the below applet at A17a. The aim of this is to give students practice in maintaining equality by applying the same operation to both sides of an equation.

Mixed-topic problem-solving

We have continued to add more mashup and shortcut problems, available to Premium subscribers via this page. To find out more about the resources available to our Premium subscribers, click here.

Skills drills

We have also added skills drill worksheets in the teacher resources boxes for a number of topics. As with the other resource linked in these boxes, the resources are available to our Premium subscribers only.
