Endorsed for the OCR J560 GCSE Mathematics Higher tier specification for first teaching from 2015, our Homework Book is an ideal companion to the OCR Higher tier Student Book and can be used as a standalone resource. With exercises that correspond to each section of the Student Book, it offers a wealth of additional questions for practice and consolidation. Our Homework Books contain a breadth and depth of questions covering a variety of skills, including problem-solving and mathematical reasoning, as well as extensive drill questions. Answers to all questions are available free on the Cambridge University Press UK Schools website.
Offers practice questions for students covering the full range of topics across the Higher tier GCSE Mathematics curriculum.
Questions follow the same gradient of difficulty as in the Student Book, getting progressively more difficult throughout the course of each exercise and chapter.
Full coverage of all Assessment Objectives.
Chapters are organised to offer a ready-made learning trajectory.
Can be used in the classroom or set as homework.
Contains a Homework exercise corresponding to each exercise in the Student Book, offering twice the amount of practice material to students.
Can be used as a standalone resource or as part of the Cambridge GCSE Mathematics suite of resources.
Includes tips to help students memorise material when tackling more difficult questions.
Ideally sized for school bags.
