Solving Real-Life Stuff with Maths for Years 7 - 10, Book 2

The Solving Real-Life Stuff with Maths titles go beyond abstract theory and help students in years 7—10 to understand the practical application of the mathematical concepts they learn from text books.

Product details

Each book contains an array of challenging, hands-on activities and high-interest topics (such as sport and bungee-jumping Barbie dolls!) that will motivate and engage even the most reluctant learner in your classroom and foster an active-learning environment. Most units have a link to general science concepts, making them an ideal cross-curriculum resource.
Students are encouraged to work together and to use technological materials and computer programs such as Excel to complete tasks.
