Mainstream texts are for mainstream students, and Spectrum Mathematics Gold Year 7 second Edition recognises that not all students are mainstream! This success-focused text comes from the authors' extensive careers in Special Education. Purpose written for the NSW Year 7 mathematics syllabus, Spectrum Mathematics Gold Year 7 provides a complete course of instruction for students with special needs and is ideal for separate classes or withdrawal groups. However, since Spectrum Mathematics Gold Year 7 reflects the content sequence of Spectrum Mathematics Year 7, teachers can draw from both texts simultaneously to meet the needs of all their students. In common with Spectrum Mathematics Years 7, this text covers the full course requirements of the NSW syllabus; features syllabus outcomes at the beginning of each chapter and comprehensive chapter reviews at the end; and contains an appropriate balance of basic mathematical skills and more advanced concepts.
