Excellence in Maths 2 for Secondary Students

Author: George Fisher, 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. Each book in the series contains challenging questions on all major topics for that level.

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

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