Puzzle for Today

Puzzle No. 455 – Wednesday 10 April

In schools across the UK, exam season is around the corner so the Easter holidays are a key time of revision for students. In the Maths Appeal GCSE revision podcast, Susan and Bobby spend one third of the episode discussing revision tips and half as much time explaining the new Maths GCSE curriculum.

Today’s #PuzzleForToday has been set by Bobby Seagull and fellow maths teacher Susan Okereke, who are both co-hosts of the Maths Appeal podcast.
