Teaching A-Level well can be a challenge for experienced teachers. Even more so for teachers new to A-Level. Especially so with the current proof-led curriculum.
You need quick answers - provided in the textbooks - and fully worked solutions for deeper understanding.
A new syllabus, without a history of questions to drill students on, is an opportunity for a fresh approach. We start with the assumption that mathematics at A Level should deliver good students for higher level studies – in mathematics and science. These answers provide part of that approach.
Developed by teachers for teachers – there are applets that demonstrate points for use in the classroom or for student use at home.
A key part of the contemporary, comprehensive series
Priceless in livening up difficult topics, and exciting students with the dynamism of the mathematics that they are studying. Tarquin has over 50 years experience of making mathematics fun for young and old. This book is an excellent addition to our list.
£25.00 for BOTH the book and ebook (supplied in the Tarquin eReader).
This book is also in the Tarquin Select Thinking Mathematically package with 100s of other resources for a TINY fee. Click the orange icon to find out more.
For maximum convenience and understanding, you want fully worked solutions.
Focus on mathematical thinking with this book - and series - to really create a new generation of mathematicians!
A team of practical, technology-savvy teachers – who are able mathematicians – has been put together to deliver the new suite of Tarquin A-Level products. The team is led by:
Dr Tom Bennison: following completion of a PhD in Applied Mathematics, Tom Bennison is pursuing a career in teaching and is now the Level 3 Lead for the East Midlands West MathsHub. With experience of teaching undergraduates, postgraduates and school students he is keen to support other teachers deliver A-Level Mathematics. He views the introduction of the new syllabus as an opportunity to expose students to mathematics; not just past exam questions. He is a proponent of technology in the classroom and advocates the use of interactive activities alongside the more traditional exercises to develop understanding and intuition amongst students.
Dr Edward Hall is currently a mathematics lecturer at the University of Nottingham. He has four years of lecturing experience, teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate mathematics and engineering students. As somebody who has worked both within mathematics and engineering departments and closely with industrial collaborators, he is well placed to understand what Universities are looking for from those applying to study STEM subjects. He hopes this textbook will enable students to approach the new unified A-Level syllabus with confidence and inspire them to further their mathematical studies at university.
