Apply Practice Book GCSE
Published in September 2018. Pre-order price until 31st August.
Many students miss out on the 60% of marks in new GCSE that are for applying and analysing. They find it difficult to figure out questions different to any that students have seen before. Textbooks and revision guides don't help - they're only good for the 40% of marks for knowledge recall.
The GCSE Mastery Practice Book teaches all students to apply knowledge. Firmly grounded in cognitive science, it uses a 3-step approach to problem solving, explained through worked examples. with carefully guided practice to make students confident with whatever examiners ask.
This book follows on from our successful Year 7 book, and covers 60+ key concepts from year 9-11 (age 14-16).
✔ 60+ worked examples and problem types
✔ 100's of carefully crafted questions
✔ Hints and answers
✔ Ideal for both school and home use
✔ Based on proven research

The first page of each problem is a clear and visually explained worked example. It shows students a 3-step process for successfully solving unfamiliar questions:
- Detect: work out what you need to do to answer the question
- Recall: bring to mind all the relevant knowledge
- Solve: go step-by-step from what you know to the solution
The second page is a set of 'your turn' questions to try. The first is similar to the example to check that students can follow the thinking. Further questions are carefully crafted as stepping stones to build their competence and confidence. There are hints to get students unstuck, and answers at the back.
At the end of a chapter, students are ready for the 'mixed up problem' challenge. Like in an examination, several types of problems are mixed together, but now students have learned the skills of recognising which knowledge to use in each situation.
