# Transition Year - Mathematics

## Text & Tests for Transition Year

#### Exploring Maths through History!

**Designed specifically for Transition Year classes, this textbook will give students a fresh and exciting perspective on the development of maths and its place in the world.**

* Text & Tests for Transition Year* is a new and engaging textbook that explores mathematics through history and key concepts. Built around eight modules, it acts as a bridge into Transition Year from the Junior Cycle course, revisiting and consolidating work previously completed (

**Looking Back <<**), while showing how these topics will develop later on (

**Looking Ahead >>**).

- Each module begins with a timeline, mapping the development through history of this branch of mathematics.
- The modules are divided into parts, each of which revises a specific topic. These are written in an accessible, easy-to-understand style.
- Links between mathematical ideas are shown and concepts are connected to real‑world use.
- Worked examples with focused exercises (tagged as
**Check-up**) are key elements of each module, with the level of difficulty of the questions in each Check-up graduated. **Talking points**appear throughout the book to stimulate discussion, suggest other approaches or add clarity.- Each chapter concludes with a
**Test**that covers all the mathematical topics covered in that module.

**Author**

The author, **Paul Cooke**, is a highly regarded and experienced teacher, who has been a key member of the * Text & Tests* team for many years.
