A2 Geography Revision Guide: unit 3 Contested Planet

This 110 page revision guide is one of a series of low-cost downloads that has been produced for A level students. The guides are written for the Edexcel syllabus, but are usable by students following other courses too.

The booklet, which may be printed out and copied for all student to have, or which can be put onto the school learning platform, costs just £10 plus VAT. It includes revision notes and activities on energy insecurity, water conflict, biodiversity under threat, superpower geographies, bridging the development gap and technological fixes.

Throughout there are summaries of what the student needs to know, the key terms (supply shock, renewable resources, carbon credit etc etc), and numerous illustrations to help the student understand key points.

The aim throughout is to help the student get to the core of the matter and grasp the basic elements of the subject, building up his/her knowledge and certainty around the subject.

A typical page centres of the California Case Study which looks at why the USA has an energy crisis, and then from there, why California is suffering an energy crisis.

There are always some pupils and students in school for whom maths is a struggle.

Indeed they sometimes struggle so much that it is possible to believe that these young people might be suffering from dyscalculia.

And yet at the same time it is obvious that they are not totally lacking in the field of mathematical concepts.

A typical case might involve someone who understands the concept of number, addition and subtraction, but is utterly lost when it comes to multiplication. Another student may have grasped most of the fundamentals but needs to go back over some points of detail.

It is to help such pupils and students that we have produced Dyscalculia Practice Activities– a copiable volume that brings together elements of our earlier three Dyscalculia Activities volumes.

While some pupils and students clearly need the in-depth help of a volume in the Dyscalculia Activities series, Dyscalculia Practice Activities is intended for those pupils and students who show dyscalculic tendencies but who are able to grasp some of the fundamental elements of basic maths.

Dyscalculia Practice Activities includes a huge range of projects for pupils and students who can benefit by working through the fundamentals for maths (the four functions, shapes, fractions, percentages and time) step-by-step in a multi-sensory manner.

The aim of the book is to encourage activity that puts the whole of the basic maths curriculum into a context that can then be used as the student progresses to more advanced work.

The volume consists of sessions in which a teacher or assistant teacher works with an individual or small group of individuals on the projects in a multi-sensory manner using coloured counters, cut-out shapes, memory cards and the like.

Please note that the coloured counters and memory cards are not provided with the copiable book, but can be ordered separately. Details are at http://shop.firstandbest.co.uk/index.php?cPath=29
