Cambridge HSC General Mathematics Study Guide by Jim Stamell


Cambridge HSC General Mathematics Study Guide by Jim Stamell

The Cambridge General Mathematics Study Guide is designed to assist students to conduct a thorough topic-by-topic review of concepts and techniques from both the Preliminary and HSC Mathematics courses. It encourages students to apply their knowledge and skills to solve a variety of problems. Each chapter is devoted to a single topic area and comprises: * a summary of the topic content arranged under subheadings; * worked examples which illustrate the application of this content to problem solving and the appropriate setting out of mathematical working; * a set of graded exercises for students to test their understanding and practise their skills, with worked solutions provided; * a more substantial set of graded further exercises for consolidation, with outline solutions provided. Finally, a set of two Practice papers is included. Each of the papers follows the format of the HSC examination paper for Mathematics.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
