8 Core is the newest edition to our popular Essential Maths series. This updated version of our 2009 8C textbook includes subtle changes throughout focusing more on reasoning opportunities to assist in deepening mathematical understanding. The content changes are minimal in the hope that this will reduce planning work in schools.
New questions are inserted throughout into current sets of problems. Structurally each topic is now arranged so that, after the main body of work, there are consolidation questions for those that need them and extension problems accordingly. This will aid differentiation in the classroom.
New ‘Spot the mistake’ sections encourage the pupils to think about each topic and to explain the reasoning involved.
Essential Maths 8 Core provides:
A wealth of carefully graded questions to stimulate an interest in mathematics
Differentiated exercises on topics to encourage consolidation and provide challenge for the most able pupils
Pupil self-assessment points throughout the book
New ‘Spot the mistake’ sections.
A focus on mathematical themes from the past
A selection of puzzles, investigations and mental arithmetic problems
