Synopsis

Making Sense of Maths: All Things Equal - Student Book Solving Equations and Algebraic Manipulation by Susan Hough, Frank Eade, Paul Dickinson, Steve Gough

Making Sense of Maths is the only series that develops conceptual understanding. This series will motivate, engage and develop the conceptual understanding of students at KS3 and KS4.

The Student's Book, used in conjunction with the workbook and teachers' book, provides engaging activities that support students in developing a true understanding of solving equations and algebraic manipulation. Making Sense of Maths has been based on Realistic Maths Education (RME) and extensively trialled in KS3 and KS4 classrooms in the UK by a team from Manchester Metropolitan University. - Use alongside existing resources or on its own - Ideal for Year 10s heading for the C/D borderline - Ideal for intervention groups - Supports the move from modular to linear specifications by improving knowledge retention - Provides support for good teaching and learning under the current Ofsted criteria
