The "MSM Mathematics" series offers an integrated and comprehensive assessment for GCSE mathematics. It provides a one-book-per-year mathematics course. There are worked examples and numerous graded exercises. The maths is set in the context of everyday life, involving investigations and project work, to provide approaches to all kinds of mathematical problem solving. The writing team has organized the mathematics covered by the National Curriculum into a series of topic-based sections within each book. Mathematical knowledge and skills are developed in line with current practice in maths teaching. The "MSM" series comprises course books at all levels. Books 1 and 2 provide maths for all abilities at Key Stage 3. Students of average ability can continue with the "x" series - books 3x, 4x and 5x. The "w" series provides support for students having difficulty with the maths covered in the books 1, 2, 3x-5x. The material in the "w" books is organized in the same sequence as the main course, but concentrates on the development of basic concepts for those students experiencing difficulties.
The "y" series caters for more able students, providing maths for top grades of GCSE and preparation for Sixth-Form work leading up to Levels 9-10 at Key Stage 4.show more
