What’s inside of Raven Math
- Each book covers all of the required learning outcomes of the new 2016 BC math curriculum
- Each chapter begins with a summary of the concepts (or outcomes) to be learned
- Each new concept is, in turn, introduced and explained in clear, non-technical language, using simple sentences and illustrations (when needed). The new concept is then reviewed and the problem-solving strategies are introduced by way of “Examples with (step-by-step) Solutions.” Understanding of the new concept and problem solving ability are tested with “Exercises” and “Extra for Experts” (work space provided).
- Each chapter concludes with “Extra Practice” and a comprehensive “Chapter Test.” The answers for the “Exercises,” “Extra Practice,” and “Chapter Tests” are at the back of the book, allowing for self-testing that provides immediate feedback on the success of learning.
