Essential Skills A Star

I will be using these worksheets with my year 11 class over the next few weeks as extra homework tasks. The topics covered focus on the most challenging part of the GCSE course and the 5 worksheets get progressively more difficult. I have  referenced questions, where possible, to the GCSE maths takeaway menu and I have also supplied full worked solutions to go with these as well as a record sheet. Please be aware that these have been tailored to suit my class and will be used alongside other revision homework they will be doing. Feel free to use and adapt and let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement (or if you spot any errors!).
