This Mathematics Methods Study Guide by Gregory Hill supports the Western Australian ATAR Curriculum and combine the informative benefits of a textbook with the practical applications of a workbook. This comprehensive study guide enables students to work progressively through the different types of questions, building their confidence and preparing them for exams.
Year 12 students will have many practice questions to best prepare them for their exams and tests with this detailed study guide specifically written for the WA curriculum.
The Syllabus Checklist indicates to students which skills they must have acquired and the objectives they need to meet under each of the major headings of the course.
The Worked Examples are presented in a detailed manner, with brief notes and explanations being used to amplify the understanding required for the particular question. Some of these worked examples could be used in the written notes that students are permitted to take into an examination.
The Problems to Solve section in each chapter provide students with a broad range of questions without the repetitive nature of problems usually associated with a course textbook.
The Trial Tests are an additional component to this book, and allow students to familiarise themselves with examination questions. Suggested times are given for these tests, and students should be encouraged to adhere to these times to prepare properly for final examinations. Fully worked solutions are provided for students to receive immediate, accurate and useful feedback on their performance.
Tests are provided for both the resource free (no calculator) and the resource rich (calculator allowed) components of the assessment.
