Nuffield advanced mathematics: surfaces
This "option" text is part of the "Nuffield Advanced Mathematics" project. The project consists of five student books and several option books: "Mechanics 1", "Mechanics 2", "Complex Numbers and Numeral Methods", "Statistics", "Discrete Mathematics" and "Surfaces", a maths reader, teacher's book and copymasters.
The project adopts a student-centred approach to post-16 mathematics. The project is accessible to students who have attained National Curriculum level 7 (GCSE grade C and above), and encourages them to discuss, think for themselves and take some responsibility for their own learning.
By offering students the opportunity to follow their own interests, apply mathematics to real problems and study a range of options, this curriculum development includes some material normally only covered at the undergraduate level.
