Beta Mathematics

This collection of Beta Mathematics resources, published by Schofield & Sims, was developed to cater for students of average or below average ability many of whom may have had reading difficulties. The course is covered at a slower pace than the Alpha Mathematics series. It also utilises suitable apparatus and teaching devices as well as keeping to smaller quantities and stressing the importance of vocabulary and language. There are links between the two series which would allow a student to transfer between them.

Practical activities are featured prominently at all stages throughout the Beta series, as it was felt that these were the means by which students would:

*discover the concepts and relationships of numbers

*develop an appreciation of money, length, mass, capacity and time

*practice methods of measuring and estimating in the different units

*study lines, angles, plane and solid shapes, surfaces and areas

Throughout the Beta series, revision is achieved systematically by returning to selected exercises at regular intervals to practise them in short, but concentrated spells, in order to consolidate basic knowledge and skills and increase accuracy and speed.
