Carlong Integrated Assessment Papers Book 3 - Mathematics replaces both the Carlong Assessment Tests (CAT) 3rd Year - Mathematics and the numeracy part of CAT 3rd Year - Reasoning and Problem-solving.

The format of this workbook follows that of the previous books in the series with revision facts followed by examples and related activities.

We have provided the market with a book that is mainly based on the latest curriculum from the Ministry of Education, Jamaica but relevant to the rest of the Caribbean.

The textbook is organized as follows:

Note to the Teacher/Parent - tells the teacher or parent how the book works/ how it is structured.

Note to the Student - prepares them for the interesting activities that they will get to do.

Homework Reminder - serves to alert parents and remind students about exercises that have been assigned as homework.

Units 1-11 - cover the core concepts in the curriculum. Students are given both formative and summative assessments once the topics have been revised and examples have been provided.

Unit 12 - gives students a taste of what they can expect in Jamaica’s Grade 4 Numeracy Test.

Unit 13 - focuses on testing the students’ reasoning and problem-solving skills through various stimuli.

Answers - These are provided for the Reasoning and Problem-solving test papers and are included at the back of the book.

Teacher/Parent Corner - offers important tips on how to assist students with some of the more difficult topics or activities.
