Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Mathematics Foundation

Publication expected: 2020.

The book will be available in printed paperback format, or as a digital subscription edition

This Edexcel GCSE Foundation Student book provides a new approach to traditional textbooks. It is comprehensive in its coverage of the full Edexcel GCSE Maths Foundation specification, but this student book is a resource which can be used either to complement the teaching and learning materials produced by PG Online for this specification or as a stand-alone student book.  It comprises 25 sections, each focusing on aspects from one of the strands of the specification.  Each section is further divided into six or seven chapters; one chapter representing the learning from approximately one lesson. 

Each chapter begins by identifying the learning objectives and then moves on to summarise the key learning points with concise explanations supported by worked examples.  The chapter concludes with a set of graduated questions to allow students opportunity to practise and more deeply apply the learning from the chapter.  A balance of skills practice and application questions, testing reasoning and problem-solving skills support the Mastery approach.  Appropriate use of procedural variation and representations is made, with some examination-style questions.

Solutions to all questions and exercises are provided to teachers only in a free teacher pack available on our website.

To accompany this textbook, PG Online also publishes a series of 25 downloadable teaching units. Each topic in a unit consists of a PowerPoint presentation, teacher’s notes, exercise sheets and a final assessment test with practice questions. Each topic within a unit is expected to be taught over several lessons in a week. Units are sold as a lifetime site licence and may be loaded onto the school’s private network or VLE.

What people say...

Starters are designed to encourage the independent retrieval of pre-requisite knowledge, requiring students to think rather than just be told, again.

Heather Davis. Mathematics Education Consultant,

Great work, easily the most clear and easily accessible book I have seen for our subject.
