## A quiz a day helps the grades…

Below is the text of the third quick quiz. I use these quick quizzes at the beginning of each lesson to consolidate the previous lesson’s work. The questions are short and shallow – more searching questions are included in the homeworks we issue every other week. Future quick quizzes will be in PDF file format as I need to use the formula editor and diagram facilities.

The GCSE results were out yesterday, and we always see a small number of students who score 4 or 5 marks short of the grade C boundary – that is 4 or 5 uniform scale marks out of 360 for a grade C by the way. These quick quizzes may just concentrate the minds of students on basics that will lift them over that divide.

This quiz covers BODMAS, place value for decimals, multiplication and division of decimals, non-calculator style.
