Revision Tip

We’re well and truly into exam season and (hopefully) lots of revision is taking place.

The best way to revise maths is to do questions – practice, practice and more practice.

But for a change, why not make some posters in the style of the “Keep Calm and Carry On” range, using short formulas, statements and other gems to remember?

Its simple to do – use the Keep Calm-o-matic  site to generate your posters. Coming up with the phrases will help fix them in your mind and you can save them as images and use them as a quick revision guide.

Here’s another one I made, to remind me to include the extra zero when doing long multiplication (although you don’t need to worry about this if you use the grid method …)

Teaching Tip

If you’ve got access to class full of computers, why not get your whole class to make their own poster, and then the results can be saved and shared by all. (And you could get added kudos by suggesting this idea to your colleagues in the staff room – a great idea for encouraging making pithy revision notes in any subject.)
