### Student Workbook for Ordinary Level Maths - Financial Maths

A guided student exercise booklet for Ordinary Level Mathematics on Financial Maths put together by teacher Aoife McDonnell. Front page includes a reference for students on what teacher expects them to know about Financial Maths. Booklet was used as a revision practice and guide for students. The structured step-by-step format enables struggling students to gain confidence in their ability to tackle problems - giving them reassurance throughout problems. Problems are also broken down into mini-achievable parts so students come away from saying "I can't do it" to "I can do part 1 and maybe 2 of the problem" From here, other students begin to discuss as some students will say "I can do part 3 of the problem" Students begin to look to one another for answers in a carefully planned out booklet approach to revision. (Note: Some topics are missing from the front list as these were worksheets from a very good old workbook.)
