What is the best way to encourage your students to reason mathematically and solve problems?

The new National Curriculum in Mathematics has at its heart an active, process-orientated delivery of the content; greater emphasis is placed on reasoning and problem solving.

These teaching materials will supplement your chosen textbook and provide your pupils with the opportunity to think for themselves about developing a mathematical strategy to fit a given activity.

The materials have been updated with the content from the new National Curriculum to cover:

  • Developing fluency
  • Reasoning mathematically
  • Solving problems

Topics covered are:

  • The nth term
  • Percentages
  • Tessellation
  • Probability

Each topic contains: details of the mathematical content covered; a pupil’s target achieved/progression sheet, lesson plans; worksheets; assessment. A section providing answers to all worksheets is provided at the end of the book.

Selected Topics in KS3 Maths is available as a photocopiable book or on CD Rom, and individual activities can thus be readily copied and distributed to students as required. The copies can also be shared with colleagues or given to supply teachers, without any fear of the original book being misplaced.
