Cambridge University Press978-1-107-64111-2 – Cambridge Checkpoint MathematicsGreg Byrd Lynn Byrd and Chris PearceFrontmatterMore informationIntroductionWelcome to Cambridge Checkpoint Mathematics stage 7The Cambridge Checkpoint Mathematics course covers the Cambridge Secondary 1 mathematicsframework and is divided into three stages: 7, 8 and 9. This book covers all you need to know forstage 7.There are two more books in the series to cover stages 8 and 9. Together they will give you a firmfoundation in mathematics.At the end of the year, your teacher may ask you to take a Progression test to find out how well youhave done. This book will help you to learn how to apply your mathematical knowledge to dowell in the test.The curriculum is presented in six content areas: Number Algebra Measure Handling data Geometry Problem solving.This book has 19 units, each related to one of the first five content areas. Problem solving is included inall units. There are no clear dividing lines between the five areas of mathematics; skills learned in oneunit are often used in other units.Each unit starts with an introduction, with key words listed in a blue box. This will prepare you for whatyou will learn in the unit. At the end of each unit is a summary box, to remind you what you’ve learned.Each unit is divided into several topics. Each topic has an introduction explaining the topic content,usually with worked examples. Helpful hints are given in blue rounded boxes. At the end of each topicthere is an exercise. Each unit ends with a review exercise. The questions in the exercises encourage youto apply your mathematical knowledge and develop your understanding of the subject.As well as learning mathematical skills you need to learn when and how to use them. One of the mostimportant mathematical skills you must learn is how to solve problems.When you see this symbol, it means that the question will help you to develop your problemsolving skills.During your course, you will learn a lot of facts, information and techniques. You will start to think likea mathematician. You will discuss ideas and methods with other students as well as your teacher. Thesediscussions are an important part of developing your mathematical skills and understanding.Look out for these students, who will be asking questions, making suggestions and taking part in theactivities throughout the aAhmadXavierRaziOditiHarshaTaneshaZalika3 in this web service Cambridge University Presswww.cambridge.org
