The Year 10 Max Series™ Volume 4 is not your ordinary Maths revision workbook.
Are you constantly surprised to find that your school exam questions differ from the textbook questions you spent hours perfecting? Do you find those practice papers your teacher provided for you didn’t quite prepare you for the exam?
Textbooks provide course content in a way that helps students gain a sound knowledge and understanding of the fundamental concepts.
But this is insufficient to achieve exam success at school as students are required to:
- Demonstrate extensive knowledge and skills
- Apply Maths concepts to unfamiliar questions/situations
- Use sophisticated multi-step reasoning
- Exhibit excellent problem-solving skills
This is the last step before your exam
The Year 10 Maths Max SeriesTM is designed for maths revision and exam preparation, as well as providing students with the opportunity to further develop and practice the fundamental concepts. When it is used correctly, students will gain a significant advantage for their school exams.
The Year 10 Maths Max SeriesTM works by:
- Exposing students to exam-style questions to reduce the chance of encountering unfamiliar problems.
- Effectively preparing students for school exams by bridging the knowledge and skills gap between their textbooks and exam questions.
- Improving students’ problem solving skills by sharing the techniques not published in textbooks.
How to use this book
Students should only use this maths revision workbook after gaining a sound knowledge and understanding of the key concepts of the Year 10 Mathematics course content of quadratic expressions and equations. This revision workbook will effectively prepare students for school exams when the following steps are followed closely.
Step 1 Review theory content
At the beginning of each topic, a concise summary of the key concepts for quadratic expressions and equations is provided. Be sure to read and understand it before attempting any questions.
Step 2 Study the examples and their solutions to gain clarity
The examples expose students to various exam-style questions. The step-by-step worked solutions for each example provides clear multi-step reasoning to enhance your understanding and provide a structure for maximising marks in exams.
Step 3 Attempt practice questions to improve problem solving skills
Questions are organised in a progressive manner to facilitate independent learning.
If you have difficulty, the ‘NOTES TO STUDENTS’ section provides you with hints to encourage problem solving without referring to the solution.
The ‘LEVEL’ of difficulty is a useful tool to assess your ability to solve new, unseen and difficult problems.
