S. Chand’s ‘IIT Foundation Mathematics: Class VIII’ is a book that is meant to be a formative foundation block for young students from class VIII who aspire to have a successful future in competitive examinations. The book is focused around creating a strong foundation in Mathematics for students at a young age. It is during 11th and 12th standard when Mathematics takes centre stage for Non-medical and commerce students. However, with increasing competition and limited seats in prestigious universities, it fares well if the concepts become clear during the smaller classes itself. This is what this book aims to achieve.
The book helps the students to prepare for tough entrance examinations like the IIT-JEE, AIEEE, OJEE, WBJEE, etc. The book closely follows the syllabus that has been prescribed by the council and has been divided contextually in the best possible manner to facilitate student integration and understanding. The book deals with concepts of Mathematics those are crucial from an exam point of view. The concepts of Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, Trigonometry and Mensuration have been explained in a detailed manner using illustrations and examples. This makes it easy for the students to understand and grasp the fundamentals properly. The book is interactive in the sense that it has a practice section after explanation of each concept so that the students can test their understanding of the chapter that they have studied. Moreover, this allows the students to gauge their grasping level and work on concepts that they might have missed initially.
The book also has several mock test papers in the end so that the students can test their skills before sitting for the examinations. The self assessment sections also have answers provided at the end of the book so that the students can correct their errors. The book has been appreciated thanks to the in-depth analysis of the concepts and the vivid illustrations of the various examples that have been cited. S. Chand’s ‘IIT Foundation Mathematics: Class VIII’ is a comprehensive book as it familiarises the students with the concepts of Mathematics while at the same time forms a strong base that will help them prepare for competitive examinations in the future.
