This engaging course incorporates crucial challenge material right from the start, enabling students to confidently leap into Cambridge IGCSE (R) Science study with a solid foundation in Physics. It is the best preparation for our bestselling Complete Science for Cambridge IGCSE course, facilitating seamless progression from Cambridge Lower Secondary Stage 9 right into Complete Physics for Cambridge IGCSE. Complete Physics for Cambridge Lower Secondary covers all three years of Cambridge Lower Secondary Physics in the same book, flowing smoothly from one stage to the next. Regular revision and extension exercises will help consolidate learning and then stretch and challenge students to reach the next level. Plus, it's fully matched to the Cambridge syllabus, so you know everything is covered.
Complete Science for Cambridge Secondary 1 is easy to navigate, with each learning topic covered by a double-page spread. Concepts are clearly explained and followed by questions to test students understanding. In addition to these, this book contains end of unit questions to help students prepare for the progress test. And also, Scientific Enquiry sections include advice on carrying out practical work and recording results. Answers to the questions are included on the Teacher's Resource book and CD-ROM. * Dr. Kyaw Khine, Head of Science,Nelson International Education Center, Myanmar * "Complete Physics for Cambridge Secondary 1 is comprehensive, well written and clear. The mathematical and technical aspects of the subject are made understandable by Helen Reynolds. Students will find this a good resource." * Amazon teacher review * "We were particularly impressed by the layout, clear language, scientific investigations and that we can link your book chapters clearly to the chapters in our native language books." * Fiona Luna, Science Teacher, IES Karlstad, Sweden *
