About this resource
Written by an experienced A Level author who is a practising A Level teacher, Collins Bridging GCSE and A Level Mathematics is an ideal resource to be used in the classroom or for independent study.
Similar in structure to Collins Maths revision guides, the Bridging GCSE and A Level Maths Student Book is split into an explanation section and a practice section.
• Identify and understand the transition from GCSE to AS Level Maths with ‘What you should already know’ objectives and ‘What you will learn’ objectives at the start of each topic
• Get a head start on your AS Level Maths with introductions to key Core 1 Maths topics for all exam boards (AQA, OCR and Edexcel)
• Boost your understanding with worked examples which include extra guidance in the form of ‘Handy hint’, ‘Checkpoint’, ‘AS Alert!’ and ‘Common error’ boxes
• Reinforce and build on your maths to fully prepare you for AS Level with worked examples and plenty of practice questions from B-A* at GCSE Level extending to AS Level
• Think and draw on different areas of maths with investigations at the end of some topics
• Check your progress with answers to Maths practice questions at the back of the book
• Test your understanding of the maths you’ve covered with the tear-out practice exam paper
The transition between GCSE and AS/A2 level mathematics is considerable. This essential textbook will help students navigate their way through all the key concepts and applications to enable students to achieve real success in post-16 mathematics.Chris CurtisHead of MathematicsFrome Community College
