Features of the series:

  • In-text Exercises given after every section of a chapter to reinforce the concepts learnt
  • Maths Info for additional information and Try These for hands-on practice are given throughout the chapters
  • At A Glance at the end of each chapter to summarize the concepts learnt
  • Mental Maths, Practice Time and Think Smart to consolidate the concepts learnt in each chapter
  • Unit-wise Self-Testing Exercises and Question Bank compiled at the end of the book
  • Concepts’ Glimpse and Formula Sheet provided at the end of the book for a quick recall
  • Life skills-based questions given either throughout the chapter or at the end of Practice Time
  • Subject Integration introduced to help students understand the application of mathematics in other subjects and various fields
  • Activities integrated throughout the book to strengthen the concepts learnt
