Practice Mode allows you to test your maths knowledge and understanding without being judged. No marks are awarded, and your teachers do not have any record of your progress - you can use it to practice in your own time:
Once opened up, you'll see a screen with a number of tiles on the left, encompassing a whole range of different questions. The title on the tile (for example, 'Synoptic questions on surds level 1') tells you that the questions here are on surds, and at level 1 difficulty:
Click on any of these tiles, and the first question will appear on the right hand side of the screen, ready for you to attempt to answer it:
You can use the filtering or search bar to find a specific question or topic.
All questions in practice mode are 'randomisable' - which means that you can re-do the same question as many time as you like, but with different numbers/variables each time:
All practice questions with ‘synoptic’ in the title comprise a series of different questions that cover the entire topic at a specific difficulty level. For example, ‘Synoptic questions on surds level 2’ contains a variety of questions on surds, all of which are at difficulty level 2’. Clicking ‘randomise’ on these questions will produce a new question (ie sometimes only the variables will be changed, at other times the entire question will be different).
Please note: the Practice questions are not available for teachers to include in tests
