There's nothing better than exam practice with good feedback to sharpen your skills, so you might consider the CGP foundation practice paper pack (£2.75)

Using y = mx + c to find the gradient and equation of a line without drawing

Solving cubic equations graphically (when the graph is given)

Solving quadratic equations graphically

Recognising graphs of quadratic, cubic and reciprocal functions

Finding interior and exterior angles of polygons

Using tree diagrams to work out probability

Deciding if an outcome is biased by comparing theoretical probablility with experimental outcomes

Finding median, quartiles and inter-quartile range from cumulative frequency table or graph

Using median and quartiles to draw a box plots from data in a table or graph

Unit 1 Grade A skills are

Appreciate that premature rounding has a influence on the accuracy of calculations (consider bounds)

Solving equations by plotting graphs and finding intersections

Calculating equation of line through a point and perpendicular to a given line

Calculating the distance between points using 3D co-ordinates (in simple cases where this does not require Pythagoras)

Constructing and interpreting histograms

Understand stratified sampling

Find probability for combined events using multiplication and addition

Unit 1 Grade A* skills are:

Knowing proofs of angle theorems

Knowing proofs of constructions and conguence

Below is a list of all the key skills needed for GCSE, sorted by level. At the moment, all I've had time to do is copy it three times and put the correct titles on it. Within each section I need to go back and delete the skills that aren't needed on that particular unit. If you learn all these skills, that should cover the grade, but you'd be learning a lot of extra material that won't be tested until the next unit. Call back in 48 hours to hopefully see this completed.
