The academic year is split into modules that are each 6 weeks long.  Over time we intend to produce playlists explaining and extending the topics that will be taught so that you have the opportunity to make the most of lesson time.  In addition these are great places to review topics before a test or to get extra help with your homework.

PC 9 - Specimen Paper

Plymouth Challenge - Specimen Paper.

The  Plymouth Challenge 9 (PC 9) is aimed at challenging and stretching the most able Yr 9 students in any school.  Our first paper was well received this year (Click me for 2016 paper) and we hope you can join us for the next challenge in 2017.

Please note the answers will not be published for the 2016 paper until after the 2017 paper so that schools can use the 2016 paper as a mock.  We will, of course, email any school the answers - just ask but please don't share them around!

In the meantime take a look at the Specimen questions (Click me for Specimen paper) and the video solutions below.

Show My Homework

Over the past couple of years this blog has carried all the homework for our students.

From September, the academy has subscribed to Show My Homework (SMHW) and all homework, for all subjects, will be available from that website.  We will still be using this blog for our mental arithmetic practice, walking talking mocks and other things that may be of interest.

Each student has received a password and username to access SMHW.  If you haven't received yours you can still access all the set homework  (from September) by searcing for our academy in SMHW's search box.

SMHW does so much more than just alert you to homework - please take a look and download the app for your phones.  (Just srearch for Show My Homework in your app store)

Please email us at Maths@asap.org.uk with any questions or if you would like to be reminded of your password
