really confusing and jumbled with volume of 3d shapes

Response from Teachit editor
We're sorry you've found this confusing. Each sheet is intended to be folded in half to create a booklet. Once that is done (according to the page numbers in the bottom corners), it should make sense.
4
The activities are good and the structure logical. It would be useful to have the pages in the correct order.

Thank you for your comments. I have used this resource with my GCSE students and found it useful too. I agree about the answers and this is something I make sure happens on resources that we publish now.

One to one tuition with students unwell and unable to attend school. A concise source of information, collecting key points and practice questions for independent study, independent revision or as a basis for class work which the teacher can supply further practice. Gives confidence to student that all points covered. Foundation level students can miss out higher level topics: Pythagoras in 3D shapes. Just right for students working towards grade C or above.
