Higher GCSE Maths 4-9
This book covers the material required for the GCSE Higher Tier (grades 4 to 9).
Nowadays there is a wealth of enriching resources available to teachers, particularly on the internet. This book can be used alongside these to enable students to work at topics in a systematic way which helps to build up their confidence.
‘M’ sections cover the main part of the syllabus and ‘E’ sections cover the extended part of the syllabus.
Constant revisiting of topics is essential for mathematical fluency and success. Throughout this book, ‘Can you still?’ sections encourage this continual reviewing process. This material is designed for short sessions within lessons to keep ideas fresh in students’ minds.
Questions are provided at the end of each unit for students to test themselves against each learning objective stated at the start of the unit. These are then backed up with a selection of GCSE examination questions.
‘Use your maths’ sections are designed to encourage discussion and to highlight the maths required in a variety of situations. There are also two additional units devoted to raising students’ awareness of money matters.
