    Our specialist mathematics advisers understand that the best way to revise Maths is to practise it, so topics have been chosen to help students make best use of their time. Students and teachers can select the workbook for their target grade which will then test and build their understanding of the more challenging topics. Lower grade workbook can be used to remind students of key areas they may not have studied recently.

    Each book contains a programme of 30 separate sessions that each focus on a key topic to help students succeed at GCSE. Each session includes

    • a quick quiz to encourage recall of important facts and methods
    • a short review of the previous session
    • simple explanations and reminders
    • several carefully varied questions to cement understanding
    • a selection of reasoning and problem-solving questions


    Each full colour book costs £7.95 (plus postage and packing) and can be ordered from the HfL Shop by both parents and schools.
