New Mathematics Counts 1

New Mathematics Counts 1


For Grade 7, or upon completion of Book 6 in Primary Maths, 3rd edition or My Pals are Here! Maths.

For those who like the Primary Maths, 3rd Edition format and math is not considered your childs "strong point", then this series is for you.  It covers all the concepts in other 4-yr programs, but progresses at a slower pace to cover the concepts in 5 years.  No additional workbooks required and students can usually work through this program unassisted. 

New Math Counts follows the same format of abstract reasoning supported by slowly introduced concrete examples.  Chapters open with an interesting story or related example, objectives for the chapter, diagrams that help visualize the abstract concepts, highlighted key ideas, worked step-by-step examples, sidebar hints, and more.

Exercises promote a multi-faceted understanding with increasingly difficult questions, activities that force students to remember last-years lessons, and challenge-questions.  Time-out and journaling activities incorporate IT, thinking skills and journal writing tasks for a more interdisciplinary learning experience.

Review papers and "concept checks" help diagnose any weakness.  Eight units cover the topics: Numbers, factors and multiples; rational numbers and estimations; percentages; algebraic expressions and manipulation; ratio, rate and speed; basic geometry; mensuration of planes and solids; and statistical representations.  Full-color pages are bright and provide visual interest, and a clearer explanation of mathematical concepts.

Paperback.  354 pages.
