This series integrates prealgebra, algebra, geometry, and some advanced math topics. Textbooks emphasize investigative work, communication skills, computation, estimation, mental calculation, and problemsolving heuristics. Many questions require students to apply knowledge to new situations rather than follow rote procedures. They include answer keys to Exercises, Revision Exercises, Miscellaneous Exercises, and Assessment Papers.
Features & Components:
 Exercises, including challenging and revision problems, meet the needs of students of varied abilities.
 Chapter reviews consolidate key concepts and skills.
 Investigation sections provide opportunities for students to explore, experiment with, and discuss mathematical ideas.
 Assessments help students and educators measure progress.
Note: One textbook for each grade. Soft cover. New Elementary Solutions Manual contain worked solutions to Exercises, Revision Exercises, Miscellaneous Exercises, and Assessment Papers.
