Excellence in Maths 1 for Secondary Students

Author: George Fisher & Peter Howard, Publisher: Phoenix

The Excellence in Maths series was created to give sequenced instruction in the four basic areas of maths: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Additionally they aim to develop problem solving skills with a combination of riddles, brain-twisters and puzzles that are aimed at enriching students. There are challenging questions on all major topics.

Book 1 is for Junior Secondary and Book 2 is for Middle Secondary.

Answers are provided in the centre of each book and are removable by the parent or teacher.
