Lessons begin with a class activity to encourage discovery. Worked examples of new concepts are followed by similar questions for students to solidify their understanding.

Exercises include:

  • Basic Practice: Simple questions that drill comprehension of concepts
  • Further Practice: More challenging questions that involve direct application
  • Challenging Practice: Questions that require synthesis
  • Maths@Work: Questions that apply mathematical concepts to real world situations
  • Brainworks and Enrichment: Questions involving higher order thinking or an open-ended approach to problems.

Each chapter in Grades 7-8 is followed by a review exercise. The Extend Your Learning Curve activity encourages students to consider math outside the classroom with questions requiring sentence or paragraph reflections on their learning experiences.
