Introduction

Welcome to Cambridge Checkpoint Mathematics Practice Book 9

The Cambridge Checkpoint Mathematics course covers the Cambridge Secondary 1 Mathematics framework. The course is divided into three stages: 7, 8 and 9. This Practice Book can be used with Coursebook 9. ItÂ is intended to give you extra practice in all the topics covered in the Coursebook. Like the Coursebook, the Practice Book is divided into 19 units. In each unit you will find an exercise for every topic. These exercises contain similar questions to the corresponding exercises in the Coursebook. This Practice Book gives you a chance to try further questions on your own. This will improve your understanding of the subject. It will also help you to feel confident about working on your own when there is no teacher available to help you. There are no explanations or worked examples in this book. If you are not sure what to do, or need to remind yourself about something, look at the explanations and worked examples in the Coursebook.
