Making full use the Excel spreadsheet enables the students to see where they are and how other teams are doing, thus providing great motivation for the whole activity.

    Summary

    A KS4 GCSE math revision lesson that is used as a means of assessing students' understanding of a recently completed module of work.
    The concept of the lesson was created by Gary Morris, AST Math teacher at William Parker Sport College, Hasting. The lesson is extremely popular and plays to the students' competitive nature. It works particularly well with grade C/D borderline students, having had a dramatic effect on the results the students get.
    Team Challenge is a format that can be applied to many different mathematical topics, but in this featured lesson Gary is using it to assess his students understanding in statistics.
    All resources required to run this lesson are supplied with the video, including lesson plan, excel score sheet and the statistical question and answer sheets.
