Question
This question aims to test understanding and ability to use the laws of indices.

Exam (3 questions)
Apply formulas to calculate the areas of various shapes.

Question
Use two points on a line graph to calculate the gradient and $y$intercept and hence the equation of the straight line running through both points.
The answer box for the third part plots the function which allows the student to check their answer against the graph before submitting.
This particular example has a positive gradient.

Questions on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing numbers in standard form.

Question
Multiply two numbers in standard form, then divide two numbers in standard form.

Question
Given some numbers in standard index form, convert to decimal form.

Question
Add two numbers in standard form, then subtract two numbers in standard form.

Question
This question tests the student's ability to identify equivalent fractions through spotting a fraction which is not equivalent amongst a list of otherwise equivalent fractions. It also tests the students ability to convert mixed numbers into their equivalent improper fractions. It then does the reverse and tests their ability to convert an improper fraction into an equivalent mixed number.

Question
Identify wellknown fractional equivalents of decimals. Convert obscure decimals and recurring decimals into fractions.

Question
Convert a variety of numbers from decimal to standard index form.

Question
Given the first few terms of an arithmetic sequence, write down its formula, then find a couple of particular terms.

Question
This question aims to assess the student's understanding of the difference between biased and unbiased events and also to assess the student's understanding of the fact that the experimental probability tends towards the theoretical probability as the number of trials increases.
