Essential Mathematics Gold for the Australian Curriculum Year 7 contains the following features: * The three interconnected content strands are incorporated into 10-11 units of work that can be completed in the school year. * Carefully chosen and assessed language, design and sentence structures engage students who struggle with maths and potentially with reading. * Examples show explanations alongside solutions, and are closely linked to carefully graded exercises, giving students the opportunity for immediate success and to work independently. * Maths Words and Hint balloons reinforce the meaning of key terms and help students apply key concepts as they work through the exercises. * Every question is grouped according to the proficiency strands of the Australian Curriculum * Important terms are defined within the text for immediate understanding and included in the glossary for reference and revision. * Games and puzzles in every chapter * Chapter reviews include summary mind maps of key concepts and lots of revision questions to test understanding.
