Alpha, Beta, Gamma pupils' books pound;9, teachers' book pound;30 Aimed at the top 25 per cent, coherent, challenging and fun. Could be a top set class text. Read the teacher's book.

Game Mathletts from AG Interactive Learning, pound;350 for an eight-box set or pound;325 if you quote The TES www.mathletts.com
