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 8 Student Book provides accessible content to engage international school students from a wide range of backgrounds. Scientific enquiry material is integrated throughout, with practical activities to develop the required skills. Learning outcomes at the start of each spread are matched to the curriculum framework and let the students know what they need to learn and understand in each topic. Learning is put into real-world contexts through Science in context! spreads, challenging students to think about wider issues. Summary questions throughout the text test and consolidate students' learning. 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 covering key points of the curriculum framework, revision material, and exam preparation material.
