Designed to meet the needs of students taking the GCSE Mathematics Examination, especially those students seeking to pass at grades B, C, D, E or F, this book was written to satisfy the requirements of the Intermediate tier of the National Curriculum syllabus (1994 onwards), covering Attainment Levels 5-8. In line with the National Curriculum, it is divided into four broad areas: number, algebra, shape and space, and handling data. Numerous worked examples for each topic and graded exercises should develop and test understanding. Examination questions are included at the end of each section to provide the necessary practice. All concepts are explained thoroughly, allowing the book to be used for independent study, or as part of a formal course.
