Ace your Year 9 Science exams with this 80-page exam workbook!
Do you worry about how your child performs in science exams? Students are often surprised by questions they haven’t seen before. Does your child perform well in class but struggle in exams? They’re not alone. Many students struggle to apply what they’ve learned practically.
Conventional school textbooks provide course content in a way that helps students gain a sound knowledge and understand the fundamental concepts. This isn’t enough for success.
Why is this not enough to achieve high marks at school? At school, students are required to:
- Exhibit extensive knowledge and skills
- Apply Scientific concepts to unfamiliar questions/situations
- Employ sophisticated multi-step reasoning
- Practise excellent problem-solving skills
Here’s how we’ll get your child exam ready!
Matrix has prepared thousands of students from Year 7 through Year 12 to ace their exams and HSC over the past 20 years. To create the Year 9 Science Max SeriesTM Volume 1 we’ve drawn on this extensive experience and knowledge. Use our knowledge to help your child prepare for their next exam.
The Year 9 Science Max SeriesTM Volume 1 is not your typical Year 9 Science Revision Workbook. This workbook is designed for exam preparation, as well as providing students with the opportunity to further develop and practise fundamental concepts.
When students use this Science revision workbook correctly, they will gain significant advantages in their school exams.
Students who use the Year 9 Science Max SeriesTM Volume 1 are empowered to:
- Take control of their learning
- Tackle unfamiliar questions because they’ve been exposed students to exam-style questions
- Effectively prepare for school exams because they’ve bridged knowledge and skills gap between their textbooks and exam questions
- Improve their skills by sharing the exam and problem-solving techniques not published in regular textbooks.
How to use the Year 9 Science Max SeriesTM Volume 1 for Science exam success
Exam success comes from doing, not just knowing. This book is designed for students who have a sound understanding of the key year 9 concepts of:
- The Periodic Table
- Arrangement of electrons, stability and reactivity
- Applications of radioisotopes
Just having a sound understanding of these concepts isn’t enough. To succeed in exams, students need effective practice.
Students should only use this Year 9 Science revision workbook after gaining a sound knowledge and understanding of the key concepts of the Year 9 Science course content for Atoms and the periodic table, Radioactivity. This science revision workbook 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, there is a concise summary of the key concepts. 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.
This Year 9 Science revision workbook is an exam preparation workbook compliant with the NESA NSW Science Stage 5.3 Syllabus.
The Science revision content in the Year 9 Science Max SeriesTM Volume 1 covers the topics ‘Atoms and the periodic table, Radioactivity’ from the NSW Science Stage 5 Syllabus.
