Part of the Discovering mathematics series
Discovering Mathematics is adapted from the leading Singapore course to fully match the English Key Stage 3 National Curriculum.
This groundbreaking series harnesses authentic mastery principles through a Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) approach, and use of precise mathematical language.
Students learn by discovery, an approach pioneered by this course.
Written by an experienced UK/Singapore team, this engaging book provides progression and practice forFoundation tier students in Year 8. Topics are introduced through inclusive whole-class activities.
Worked examples give clear steps of how to present solutions, with hints and discussion points to encourage paired, group and whole-class working.
Practice exercises are differentiated into two levels, progressing from basic fluency to problem solving, with consolidation through end-of-chapter exercises.
Short answers are in the back of the book to help students quickly check their understanding, with fully-worked solutionscontaining GCSE grades in the Teacher Guide.
Exercises incorporate 'intelligent practice', with careful variation of the numbers to reinforce and deepen learning.
Problem-solving skills are identified throughout, with two dedicated problem-solving sections to support skills development.
Students are alsoencouraged to reflect upon and embed their learning through a Write in Your Journal in every chapter.
This Student Book will help students discover the underlying principles of mathematics and set them on the road to mastery.
