You can also use the books as a catch-up for any lessons missed, or as extension if your child is bright because the workbooks are written as a series and can be used in sequence. Each write-on workbook features simple instruction boxes with an actual example of the concept being taught. These instructions demonstrate the rules and techniques of today’s mathematics so you can understand your child’s work and become an effective home-teacher. The book also contains a removable full set of answers for marking. For Teachers: The Dragon Maths series provides a sequential set of write-on workbooks for students from Year 3 to Year 6. Year 7 and 8 titles are available for extension work. Each workbook covers the following curriculum strands : Number and Algebra, Geometry and Measurement, and Statistics.
