Product description

Endorsed by Cambridge International Examinations, the Essential Science for Cambridge Secondary 1 series provides complete curriculum framework coverage for Stages 7-9. It has been written by an experienced author team and provides a seamless link into Cambridge IGCSE, maximising students' potential. The Stage 7 Student Book provides accessible content to engage international school students from a wide range of backgrounds. Double-page spreads comprehensively cover the syllabus framework, each spread emphasising the key learning points. There is a dedicated section on Scientific Enquiry in this text, with practical activities to develop the required skills. Students are challenged to think about wider issues through Science in context! spreads. Each chapter concludes with examination-style questions, preparing students for the checkpoint test and introducing them to IGCSE-style questions. The CD -ROM included with the book contains engaging interactive learning exercises, revision material and exam preparation.
