Want to help your students to avoid common mistakes and poor exam technique?
Teachit maths is here to help! We have partnered with AQA to bring you GCSE mathematics - small things make a big difference, a pdf presentation to help you guide your students through the small changes they can make to their exam paper practice which will make a big difference to their marks.

The ten areas addressed are:
Learning keywords and terminology
Using keywords and terminology correctly
Presentation and setting out of working

Learning and recalling formulae correctly
Poor use or no use of brackets
