    Just poped over from the science forum to ask for your help.
    Taking my science teacher hat off and putting my maths parent one on:
    Could you recomend any good websites my son could use to revise for his unit 1 resit in March? I've downloaded all the past papers from the old spec and matched them up to the new one, taking out the odd question here and there. Are there any online interactive resources you could recomend?

    Thanks in advance.

    I think you'll be hard pressed to find anything substantial. The response to AO2/AO3 resources which one can purchase has been pretty poor, IMO - a real gap in the market... As mentioned in another thread, the publishing houses were quick to peddle their useless textbooks. As you imply, what is really required is a resource which specifically targets these new-style questions, rather than the same old nonsense with a few extra questions thrown in here and there. Edexcel's practice papers have been poor - just recycled old papers with a few extras. Once the syllabus has run for a year or so, there will be a better and growing stock of past papers - just in time for the Tories to change it all again... For now, we've just had to invest in commercial mock-ups from Churchill Maths and Zig Zag - these are fine but obviously not free....!!

    The latest MathsWatch isn't bad, but I like the new CGP resources. For less than £10 you could buy both.
