What’s new?
Providing the most reliable interpretation and delivery of the new Study Design, and now with additional, highly experienced educators on the author team, the proven teaching and learning formula of the second edition of this series is enhanced by a number of new features:

  • Authoritative curriculum coverage of algorithms and pseudocode, including appendix support of the basic principles, and guides to the use of Python and the programming capabilities of CAS calculators for writing and implementing algorithms.
  • A revised structure for General Mathematics Units 1&2, combined with Now Try This questions after worked examples to give students immediate practice, plus carefully graded exercises and explicitly labelled exam-style questions.
  • More revision opportunities with dedicated revision chapters on groups of topics and a final chapter that revises the textbook.
  • Practice opportunities for the Mathematical Investigation in Units 1&2 with the inclusion of several investigations in the review chapters of each book and additional investigations in the Online Teaching Suite.
  • Tools for students to work independently and keep track of their progress such as Learning Intentions and Success Criteria, combined with access to fully worked solutions when enabled by the teacher.
  • Access to new digital resources for the classroom and at home with workspaces and self-assessment tools available for all exercise questions, videos for all worked examples, revised and augmented auto-marked quizzes and access to auto-marked, multiple-choice practice exams created by the teacher.
  • A new Exam Generator for teachers that allows them to create custom practice exams using previous VCAA questions plus additional VCAA-style questions with mark allocation and solutions.
