MATHS 5-14. CD-Rom for PC and Mac. pound;50 for unlimited site licence. Renfrewshire Council. tel 0141 848 7602
This pack covers the full A-E level range and all strands of the 5-14 maths programme. The main focus is on-screen practical work for pupils, with considerable use of spreadsheets, graphs and databases. These, of course, are also key strands of the 5-14 information and communications technology programme.
Support notes for teachers at all levels of computer literacy are detailed and encouraging. The preparation of pie charts, for example, gives advice on the use of colour and practical ideas for data collection and manipulation. The pack also includes photocopiable materials, a forward planner and templates for work records.
