What is in year 7 Problems for Students?
While most English speaking students can read and interpret written math problems, for those who are learning English as a second language, it can prove quite difficult especially, if they are not familiar with the terms that are used.
“Generally, ESL students who have had formal training in their own countries, do not have mathematical difficulties, with their problems only beginning when they commence written word problems in another language that they have not yet mastered “
For this reason, it is recommended that students take the time required to learn the key terminology used in written math problems prior, to their attempts to solve them. This will eliminate misunderstanding of an important aspect of the question, thus leading to frustration on the part of the student when they come up with the wrong answer.
About Year 7 Problems
In the CMG Year 7 Problems book, students learn to read and interpret correctly through repetition, the written math problem, thus making the task of solving it, much simpler and easier for the student. Many of the problems on rates and frequency can be solved using the unitary method and ratio, a powerful skill that is missing in many school textbooks. CMG realizes too well the advantages to be gained by mastering that skill.
Math Problems and Solutions
Answers follow on directly from the questions in this book as giving immediate feedback to students trying to understand a particular topic is crucial to being able to retain the interest level of the student as well as their confidence level.
In each of the CMG workbooks, care is taken to provide practice and revision for each of the basic fundamentals of math thus eliminating one of the main reasons why students fail:
“When students miss out on learning and understanding one of the basic rules and fundamentals of math, they lose confidence in their ability to perform in a test situation.
