Containing a large and varied set of problems, this rich resource will allow students to stretch their mathematical abilities beyond the school syllabus, and bridge the gap to university-level mathematics. Many proofs are provided to better equip students for the transition to university. The author covers substantial extension material using the language of sixth form mathematics, thus enabling students to understand the more complex material. Exercises are carefully chosen to introduce students to some central ideas, without building up large amounts of abstract technology. There are over 1500 carefully graded exercises, with hints included in the text, and solutions available online. Historical and contextual asides highlight each area of mathematics and show how it has developed over time.Read more
- Contains substantial, carefully graded problem sets, with hints included in the text and solutions available online
- Avoids abstract language, meaning the content is accessible to sixth form students
- Includes numerous proofs which is an aspect largely absent from sixth form maths
Reviews & endorsements
'The text is quite reader friendly, with over 1,500 graded exercises (most with hints) presented throughout the text, not just at the ends of sections or chapters. As a result, readers are encouraged and motivated to take the time and make the effort to understand each concept as they proceed. Earl exerts a positive influence on beginning students as they decide whether to pursue a degree in mathematics. Perhaps best of all, students get a glimpse of the breadth of areas they can pursue within the mathematics realm - even at the early stages of their study. Summing Up: Recommended.' J. T. Zerger, ChoiceSee more reviews
'The biggest stumbling-block for many students about to go to university to study mathematics is not the lack of syllabus covered but the lethal attitude 'you don't need this for the exam'. This book will provide much of what they need … It is also a good resource for school and college departments looking for questions on FM material that will stretch their best learners.' Owen Toller, Mathematical Gazette
