This workbook will help pupil to build the knowledge and skills expected to match the new National Curriculum for years 7. Although in reality many pupils in years 8 and 9 will benefit from working through this workbook as a refresher.
To maximise the benefit for the learners, it is recommended that these workbooks should be used from beginning to end.
The mathematical tasks in these workbooks are based on the variation theory. The tasks are set in a variety of contexts, with multiple representations that enable the pupils to deepen their understanding of algebraic concepts and develop techniques to solve algebraic problems.
The activities aim to empower pupils to use their natural powers of imagination, engage them to reason mathematically and allow them to make sense of their experiences.
