Basic Skills - Language & Mathematics Year 7 (Basic Skills No. 74)
Basic Skills Year 7 Language / Mathematics is part of a series of books designed to help pupils learn the fundamentals in Language and Mathematics together with some general knowledge. Students will improve their skills by the systematic study and disciplined practice offered in the many challenging exercises on each page or set of work.
Much of the mathematics section contains problems rather than mechanical examples. This sharpens thinking and reasoning skills as well as tests mathematical ability and accuracy. Some problems may appear to be too difficult for an algebraic solution in Year 7 but can, with persistence, be solved using the trial and error method.
Guesswork should be avoided in the language section where multiple choice answers were provided. When answering these questions a dictionary or other reference source should be consulted. This will develop the habit of enquiry and verification, so important in later years of study.
The answer section is placed in the middle of the book so that it can be removed by a parent.
