Online intervention resource for IGCSE

    I am on the hunt for an online intervention resource for use mainly with KS4 Edexcel IGCSE Maths. We use Kognity with the older students but unfortunately they have not yet developed the IGCSE Maths resources. Ideally I would also like to use the same resource for KS3. I have used MyiMaths previously and liked it for its simplicity, but I dislike its focus on answers. My second in department likes Mathswatch for the video support, but having used it before has found it difficult to use with KS4 due to the way their method is marked. The other negative about this is that they do not cover the International GCSE syllabus.

    There seems to be an endless stream of resources like this, e.g. Hegarty Maths, MathsOnline, etc etc.

    What I want to know is: does anybody know of a good online resource, with immediate feedback and monitoring features, for Edexcel International GCSE and KS3?

    In summer 2018, 30,000 students took iGCSE. 440,000 took GCSE. It's to do with economies of scale. There just aren't enough students for people to develop a niche product. It's the same with "best guess papers" for the November resits - the numbers are just too small.

    I'm developing a website like this, other than not supporting iGCSE what features are MyMaths and Mathswatch lacking for you?

    Seems like you want method marks?

    Well, you could try EzyMaths - Provides bespoke video feedback for every question that a student answers (The best immediate feedback there is) Plus their new Snapshots with Augmented Reality really help to engage students when revising/ need a little extra boost. Check their twitter feed for more info.
