About the authors

The most trusted maths resource for the Victorian Curriculum, Essential Mathematics Years 7-10 Third edition now offers a powerful diagnostic tool to identify and address gaps in student knowledge.

Teachers can create their own sets of tests for a unit of work from our large bank of questions, use the intuitive reports to identify gaps and weaknesses, and target these with suggested follow-up work. The fully integrated digital resources include online features such as quizzes, walk-throughs, Workspaces and worked example videos. This edition also includes: technology and computational thinking activities requiring the use of algorithms, simulations, flowcharts and pseudocode; more modelling activities for developing transferrable real-world skills; new targeted skillsheets; and editable lesson summaries for teacher use.

  • A NEW diagnostic tool to help identify and address gaps in your students’ knowledge allows you to create your own family of tests for a designated unit of work from our large bank of questions. Use the intuitive reports to identify gaps in knowledge and set the suggested next steps of work to help students improve their performance. Let the system generate a post-test that matches the skills you have covered in your test family. 
  • A test generator allows teacher to quickly create customised tests from a large bank of questions. Questions are auto-marked and reporting tools available. 
  • Teachers can access a range of downloadable worksheets and focused skillsheets for developing both understanding and skills.
  • Use the task manager to direct students on a custom activity sequence based on their scores in measurable tasks.
