Developing an Exam Question: Number N10

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit students learn to use past examination questions creatively by selecting and using appropriate techniques and strategies to solve
problems involving numerical, graphical and algebraic manipulation. Most students will have solved problems such as these arithmetically, but they may not have considered alternative
methods of solution. Students are provided with copies of an examination question similar to those found in GCSE examinations. They answer the question, analyse the content and identify the skills required to obtain a correct solution. They develop the task by asking further
questions and changing the task in various ways. They develop their own examination questions and attempt to answer the quesitons designed by others. (GCSE grades D-G)
