This is a thorough revision of our established course for students in Year 10. The content is presented in 29 short chapters: chapters 1-24 are printed in the book in full colour, chapters 25-29 are presented on the accompanying CD as printable pages.
The book caters for a range of student abilities. It contains many problems, graded from basic to advanced. Some exercises are designed to build skills, others contextualise the problem so that students can see the practical, everyday applications of the mathematics they are studying.
Most chapters begin with an Opening Problem to show the application of the mathematics that will be studied in the chapter. Definitions and rules are highlighted and worked examples (with ) give step-by-step, easy-to-follow explanations. Investigations are included to help students develop problem solving skills and discover mathematical concepts for themselves.
