    Sections contain challenge and extension activities that build on from the main problem. The problems are designed to consolidate comprehension skills as well as mathematical processes and problem solving strategies. Activities are linked to student outcomes and each section contains an opportunity for reflection.

    Sections include: Maths in the news. Maths in advertising. Planning a holiday. Using a mobile phone
    Real Life Maths Book 2 is a follow on to book 1. Sections include :Features of CDs. Buying a widget. Party planning. Owning a credit card. Maths in the movies. An introduction to the stock market

    Go Figure - Set of 2

    This two-book series is packed with activities that involve students in problem-solving and exploration. They all involve a ‘puzzle’, mathematical mystery or story which students have to work through to a solution.

    Watch your students rise to challenges such as:
  • Deciding where to place camera detectors in an art gallery (Geometry)
  • Cracking a secret code (Interpreting information, logic and reasoning)
  • Installing a TV transmitter so it reaches all towns in the region (Measurement; Calculation)
  • Solving the mystery of barcodes and learning how to check digits (Modular Arithmetic and Problem Solving)

    Thinking Maths Set of 3

    Who for?
    These worksheets are designed for students of average mathematical ability who are aged 12 to 14 years. The questions are designed to make students THINK and are not confined to one level of the mathematics curriculum.

    What are they?
    The worksheets are photocopiable (or in book form) write-on mathematics worksheets designed to encourage students to THINK. They may be set by teachers as homework sheets, one per week, so as not to interfere too much with a tight school homework programme. To promote THINKING, the worksheets can also be used in the classroom, perhaps the last half hour at the end of the day, or on a Friday. The worksheets can be handed out to students who have worked quickly and completed the work designated for a lesson, and are looking for something else. Alternatively the worksheets will absorb students in class when teachers are absent and work has not been set.

    How do they work?
    The worksheets will enable students to think, have fun, be challenged, have a wide variety of new experiences and consolidate their knowledge of mathematics. Correct mathematics vocabulary and terminology are used in the text and the processes will develop the student’s general knowledge and give them practice in identifying patterns. A mathematical glossary or dictionary may be helpful. It is not intended that students complete, in one session, every question on a worksheet, but rather answer as many questions as possible and enjoy the participation. The questions are rich with stimulating examples, diagrams, and other illustrations. It is hoped the students will discover the amazing relevance of mathematics in the world around them. It is important in any Mathematics Curriculum to place an emphasis on THINKING.

    Mind Your Maths

    While recognising that students need a calculator for certain topics such as trigonometry, the activities in this book deepen students' insight into just how much arithmetic they can do successfully without one. They also set timeframes for completion so that students work on their speed as an essential component of effective mental arithmetic. Topics cover integers, fractions, decimals and percentages, emphasising the practice of operations such as powers of numbers and finding the square root and cube roots of fractions and decimals.

    Striving To Improve - Numeracy - Set of 4

    The Striving to Improve Series targets students who, for whatever reason, are struggling to keep up with their peers. The activities in the books are designed to prevent students from regressing any further at school. The tasks are based on a modified curriculum so that students can work at their own pace and without constant supervision from the teacher. There are also four literacy books in this series. Each section of the book provides students with the opportunity to consolidate written and mental methods of calculation, with an emphasis on process and understanding.

    Fractions The section entitled Understanding Fractions enables students to re-encounter ideas of equivalent fractions, simplifying fractions, improper fraction, mixed numerals and comparing fractions. The section entitled Calculating With Fractions walks students through the four core calculations

    Fractions, Decimals and Percentages The section entitled Skills With Decimals enables students to re-encounter ideas in decimal place value, calculations with decimals, comparing decimal quantities and rounding decimal amounts. The section entitled Fractions, Decimals And Percentages walks students through conversions between fractions, decimals and percentages. Students explore mental and written methods for performing conversion calculations. Attention is also given to real world applications and uses of these different representations, with an emphasis on understanding and using percentages.

    Angles, Shapes and MensurationThe section entitled Angles enables students to review types of angles and naming angles. There is the opportunity to practise drawing angles and using angles within a context. Students then have the opportunity to investigate angles in a triangle and to also classify the different types of triangles. The section entitled Shapes And Mensuration familiarises students with units of length, mass and capacity and provides activities to consolidate unit conversions using mental strategies. The activities then move on to exploring perimeter and area of rectangles and triangles and allow for a thorough consolidation of these foundational concepts. Students then engage with simple volume and capacity ideas.

    Integers The section entitled Understanding Integers enables students to re-encounter ideas of place value, rounding, estimation, factors, multiples and the concept of a directed number.The section entitled Calculating With Integers walks students through the four core calculations. Students explore addition and subtraction with two and three digit sums and can apply what they have learned to some real life application problems. Similarly, students explore the various levels of multiplication and division before applying them to a variety of applications.

    These activities are a useful way to scaffold a new unit of Mathematics and will help build confidence for lower ability students to attempt more challenging problems. The activities are designed to guide student learning with minimal input from the teacher and there is a strong emphasis on process and understanding.The activities can be used for individual students needing further consolidation in a mainstream classroom or as instructional worksheets for a whole class of lower ability students.
