Nuffield National Curriculum Mathematics
Nuffield National Curriculum Mathematics was written to provide comprehensive coverage of the 1996 National Curriculum for mathematics. Each student’s book in the series offers focused coverage of mathematical topics identified in the National Curriculum level descriptions. Used together the books in the series provide a straightforward and motivating route through National Curriculum mathematics for students.
The series structure of separate books for Number and algebra, Shape, space and measures and Handling data reflected the structure of the National Curriculum, with a students' book for each NC level and content attainment target up to NC Level 7.
Level 8 and above are treated in one longer student’s book. Using and applying mathematics is not treated separately but is an integral part of each book.
Up to stage four, every student’s book is presented as a series of units, each designed to provide about two weeks' work. Each book builds on the previous level and anticipates the next level. There are also some enrichment activities which are essential to a balanced mathematical education.
A strength of this series is that students may work on the book which is most appropriate to their current needs as it was believed that students would not progress through National Curriculum levels uniformly and that some students are better at topics which interest them or which they meet in other contexts.
To help teachers plan their teaching, each students' book includes a chart showing where the statements in the National Curriculum level descriptions are covered in the book. This chart is also shown in the assessment packs as is a Programme of Study matching chart. In addition to this, detailed content descriptions are provided at the top of each students' book .
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
Stage one of Nuffield National Curriculum Mathematics consists of three books one each for Number and algebra, Shape space and measures and Handling data. They are all at level four of the National Curriculum. Each students' book is accompanied by an Assessment and Resource pack offering the following materials: •…
Stage two of Nuffield National Curriculum Mathematics consists of three books at level five, one each for Number and algebra, Shape, space and measures and Handling data. They are all at level four of the National Curriculum. These students books were suitable for a foundation GCSE course. Each students' book is accompanied…
These level six books from Nuffield National Curriculum Mathematics, on Number and algebra, Shape, space and measures, and Handling data, were all suitable for a foundation GCSE course. Each students' book is accompanied by an assessment and resource pack offering the following materials: • Teaching notes - brief…
Nuffield National Curriculum Mathematics stage four books were intended for those students working at level seven and followed an intermediate GCSE course. As with previous stages, there are three books, each one covering an attainment target but also incorporating using and applying mathematics. The assessment and resource…
The Nuffield National Curriculum Mathematics stage five book, for those students following an higher GCSE course, was split into the same three sections as the previous stages’ books. Each section was divided into chapters giving relevant information and presented activities to do and questions to answer.
