Mastering Mathematics - Algebra by

Deliver outstanding lessons that build fluency, problem-solving and mathematical reasoning skills to enable sustained progress at Key Stage 3, in preparation for GCSE. Mastering Mathematics provides flexible online and print teaching and learning resources. The service focuses on strands within the curriculum to improve progression throughout Secondary Mathematics. Mastering Mathematics Student Books and Whiteboard eTextbooks are organised into progression strands in line with Mastering Mathematics Teaching and Learning Resources: - Enable students to identify appropriate remediation or extension steps they need in order to progress, through easy to follow progression charts - Clear explanations of the tools needed for the chapter followed by questions that develop fluency, reasoning and problem-solving in order to ensure transferability of skills - Show band of difficulty for each chapter and links with other areas of maths throughout the books so students know how they are doing and what they need to learn next


This is the second book I have from Mastering Mathematics series. Algebra is a topic that for some students you only have to mention the word and they go white. Each unit contains a helpful Toolbox and worked examples together with highlighted Remember section. There are plenty of practice exercises for the students - invaluable - I find students learn better and are more engaged with a hands-on approach. The book covers basic algebra up to and including solving simple equations, expanding brackets, indices, substitution, inequalities and simple simultaneous equations. Related topics such as sequences and finding the nth term (another topic hated by students) and graphs - real-life, linear, and functions are also covered well. A great book for helping students to become familiar (and not afraid!) of the basics of algebra. -- Bridget Jones Abigail Lambert
