Shape and Space

This collection from Century Maths comprises the Shape and Space elements of the Focus books.

There are three sections aimed at years 7/8, year 9 and year 10/11. Each section contains a student book and teacher material. (Note: the collection is in the process of being completed, some files may not be available at present.)

Focus books are provided at three overlapping levels for each age group. The three levels are consistently referred to as Lead-in, Core and Extension and are intended for less able, average and above average attaining students respectively.

There is a teacher's support pack for each student Focus book. The support material gives a great deal of help in making cross-curricular links as well as suggesting teaching approaches and providing answers to the student material. The first half of the Focus Teacher's Support Pack is essentially common to all of the Focus teacher's support packs.
