  1. I have been asked to teach KS3 maths to a Looked After Child, but I dont have any text books. Could someone please tell me which ones I need?

    Hadn't you heard, we don't use textbooks any more? [​IMG]
    Anyway, is the child attending school? If so, talk to the school and find out what they use - they may be prepared to lend a copy.
    If not, there are a small number of KS3 textbooks in wide use. The Oxford Framework Maths set are popular as are Colins Maths Frameworking.
    Both series have books for each of years 7, 8 & 9 and offer various levels of books for each year intended to cover various ability levels.
    The Oxford books have a sub code in the title A = "Access", S = "Support", C = "Core", E = "Extension".
    With Maths Frameworking from Colins, there are 3 books for each year - Book 1 is the easiest, Book 3 the hardest. (Book 1 is a somewhere between Framework Maths Access & Support books, Book 3 about the same as Framework Maths Extension.)
    There are some downlaodable resources on Colins publising site that may get you going.
     
  4. Of course CIMT offer a full and comprehensive resource for free.
     
  5. ditto that.
    You can also get some old books off ebay that are deemed unfashionable
    These series are some of the best books I have used and are peanuts to buy (in nice big cut and paste text)

    It really doesn't matter. One textbook is much the same as another. Go into a bookseller and find one you think the student might respond to.
