This book has been prepared in conjunction with the New National Curriculum for year 6 and covers the major 11 topics. It provides a very structured and clear idea of the new syllabus by relating similar concepts so that students can see how the topics fit together. There are explanations of the theoretical concepts as well as fully worked examples and applications. Finally, there are diagnostic tests at the end of each topic according to the following descriptions:

**Level 1**These easier questions, covering only the most basic ideas in the topic, are intended to build up confidence for weaker students.**Levels 2 and 3**The questions in these two levels are of average difficulty level, and they will give students a good opportunity to practise and consolidate the ideas and rules covered throughout most of the topic.**Level 4**These questions are more difficult. The numbers involved are larger, and the more difficult ideas in the topic are tested. This should only be attempted by more capable students.**Level 5-7**These extension levels have been included to challenge those students who are more gifted at Maths. Usually the questions are more sentence and problem solving orientated, and therefore they involve more reading and comprehension skills.

The book is suitable for Year 6 children in all States in Australia, and excellent for parents who wish to help their children excel.
