  • "Our middle school teachers have been very happy with the format and are looking forward to using this resource next academic year. Some of the things they like about it are that it does have more practice problems than our present resource and that all the topics explored at each level are in a single book which makes it easier for students to manage." - Phil Bennett, Academic Leader Mathematics, International School of Luxembourg
  • "An excellent mathematics book. This is a superb book for students following stage 7 of the Cambridge Secondary 1 scheme of work. The explanations in the book are clear. Detailed worked examples are given for each mathematical method covered." - Amazon teacher review
  • These are the best Maths resources for this level that I have ever taught from. We love the homework books which offer extra practice to consolidate core content. - Carolyn Hatton, Head of Mathematics, King Richard III College, Spain
