New Zealand Maths Homework Book For Age 11 by Geldof (update of previous Book 1)

NZMC Dragon Maths 5 is a write-on student book that contains afull mathematics programme for most Year 7 students. It revises work at curriculum Level 3 and starts work on Level 4.

Each chapter is based on a strand of the NZ Mathematics Curriculum document. The Number Strand has been allocated 4 chapters (50) pages to adequately cover all ne numeracy strategies currently being taught in NZ primary schools. A revision test is provided at the end of each chapter.

Dragon Maths 5 features instruction boxes, worked examples and a full set of answers (removable) to help students work independently of the teacher. The best use of this resource is as a classwork/homework book for use after new maths ideas have been introduced and the class has done some guided work from texts. It can also be used as a pre-exam revision resource. Students find the write-on format saves them time and the instruction boxes and worked examples reinforce classroom learning. Removable answers (perforated pages) allow students to mark their own work or the teacher may choose to hold the answers in the classroom.
