Pack three of the Century Maths Themes series comprises three theme books, each containing two themes, accompanied by the corresponding teacher support pack. The themes are designed to complement the work covered in the Year Nine Focus books.
The themes are:
• Made to measure/Linkages
• People patterns/Cultures count
• Just rubbish/Growing up
The Theme books are totally different in structure in comparison with the Focus books. They provide an accessible source of activities which can be used in a variety of ways.
Although the themes differ in context, they contain many practical and group-based activities. Most can stand alone and there are suggestions in outline for other possibilities.
