The Year 9 Max Series^{TM }Volume 2 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 multistep reasoning
 Exhibit excellent problemsolving skills
This Year 9 Maths revision workbook should be the last stop before your exam.
The Year 9 Maths Max Series^{TM} 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 9 Maths Max Series^{TM }works by:
 Exposing students to examstyle 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’ problemsolving skills by sharing the techniques not published in textbooks.
How to use this Year 9 Maths revision workbook.
Students should only use this maths revision workbook after gaining a sound knowledge and understanding of the key concepts of the Mathematics course content for equations and linear relationships. This book will effectively prepare students for school exams when the following steps are closely followed.
Step 1 Review theory content
At the beginning of each topic, a concise summary of the key concepts 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 examstyle questions. The stepbystep worked solutions for each example provides clear multistep reasoning to enhance your understanding and provide a structure for maximising marks in exams.
Step 3 Attempt practice questions to improve problemsolving 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.
