Developmental Mathematics is a unique and trusted series for Years 7 – 10 (NZ Years 8 - 11) students with strong numeracy and literacy needs.
Revised for the new Australian Curriculum as well as the New South Wales syllabus Stages 4 and 5.1.
Each chapter is presented clearly on a double-page spread.
The left page contains explanations, worked examples, and if appropriate a word bank of mathematical terminology and a fact box.
The right page contains an exercise set, including multiple-choice questions, scaffolded solutions and realistic applications of mathematics.
Each chapter concludes with a language activity that reinforces mathematical terminology.
Chapter practice tests are included containing non-calculator questions on general topics and topic questions grouped by chapter subheading.
