When I come across interesting and helpful maths websites, I’ll add the links here. If you want to let me know about links that I’ve not listed, please reply below.

I recently posted: Top Ten Maths Websites This is my choice of the best ten maths websites I’ve come across. Obviously, it’s my personal view but I’m open to polite suggestions!

My top ten list includes **Hegarty Maths** which I believe is one of best examples of how websites and online tutorials can aid maths learning (for those with and without access to a teacher). Here’s my detailed review.

National Numeracy– Resources for Learners

National Numeracy is an independent charity. This link is their list of useful webpages. I found it to be a useful collection of some of the best websites and online resources.

**English Exam Boards**

AQA (Assessment and Qualifications Alliance) www.aqa.org.uk

Edexcel www.edexcel.com

OCR (Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Examinations) www.ocr.org.uk

**Blogs**

1. Teaching AQA GCSE maths — www.aqagcsemaths.wordpress.com

This is really aimed at teachers but I’ve found it useful. Particularly impressed by their Sherlock Holmes episodes (would be great if all Maths lessons could be like this!).

**Specimen Papers**

These are links to specimen papers for the AQA’s new GCSE syllabus (2010)- first sitting June 2012:-

Foundation Level

Unit 1F Statistics and Number Question Paper

Unit 1F Statistics and Number Mark Scheme

Unit 2F Number and Algebra Question Paper

Unit 3F Geometry and Algebra Question Paper

I’ve been asked which text book I use. I chose AQA GCSE Mathematics for Higher Sets (grades D to A*) published by Longman (ISBN 978−1−408232−78−1). Please take care to make sure you get the right book for you. I chose the higher sets book as I hope that my children will get at least a grade C and hopefully grade A. It maybe appropriate to study Middle Sets ( grades E to B) or Foundation (Grades G to C). Make sure you understand what’s required or necessary for your circumstances. I chose this book just by looking at Amazon reviews and popularity. However, I’ve found it clear, colourful and easy to follow. Please note that all these links are for the new Maths GCSE syllabus (2010) and are for the linear course. Here’s link to Amazon for the Higher sets book (Grades D to A*):-

Here’s link to Middle sets book (Grades E to B):-

Finally here’s link to Foundation sets book (Grades G to C):-

Hi there

Thank you very much indeed for your lovely comments about my videos. I don’t actually update the website anymore as it was too onerous but over 300 videos are now available for free on my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/hegartymaths on GCSE and A-Level

Thanks once again for your kinds words and great job on your blog!

Mr Hegarty

Thanks Mr.Hegarty for your kind words and for your excellent videos.

I’ve altered the link so that it goes to your YouTube channel.

could you please do a video on histograms and how to make an estimate from them.

Hi Ahssan

I’m not that good at making videos. Does this video (made by Hegarty Maths) help? — http://www.hegartymaths.com/gcse/edexcel/higher/statistics-probability/v/interpreting-histograms
