GCSE Assessment Information:
The weighting of the different content domains for the 9-1 GCSE is prescribed by the Department for Education (DFE) as follows:

Weighting of marks per assessment series for “Algebra”
Foundation tier Higher Tier
20% 30%


Exam boards are to apply these weightings, subject to a +/-3% tolerance across the assessments for each tier in each Assessment Series. Note that where they do not achieve this in a given Assessment Series they should achieve them in as few Assessment Series as is possible.

Below you will find a sample (not a definitive list) of our different types of resources that are included in JustMaths Online as part of our support package, the “JustMaths Crossover” but also for teaching other topics as prescribed by the DFE in this document . Many of the worksheets included as “extras” are also suitable for use in key stage 2 and 3:

Connect 4

Our “connect 4’s” are student worksheets, in which they work in pairs (or individually) to connect 4 in the answer grid (not the question grid), which will mean that they have to answer questions of varying difficulty. It is self-checking so that if the answer isn’t in the grid the student must check their working.


These worksheets involve students having to evaluate statements to decide who committed the crime and where and when it happened.


A bit of a “marmite” idea … so you either love ‘em or hate ‘em. Each worksheet has 3 stages each building up in terms of difficulty. Students then either work straight down doing Q1 of each type or across when they want, or feel that they need to practice.
