Prints of this textbook before 2015 included a student CD, but any later reprints (2015 onwards) have moved all of the CD features to Snowflake – our online learning system.
Mathematics for Australia 10 has been designed and written for the Australian Curriculum. The textbook covers all of the content outlined in the Year 10 curriculum. This textbook is best used in conjunction with the related year levels in our ‘Mathematics for Australia’ series.
The textbook and interactive student CD provide an engaging and structured package, allowing students to explore and develop their confidence in mathematics. The material is presented in a clear, easy-to-follow style, free from unnecessary distractions, while effort has been made to contextualise questions so that students can relate concepts to everyday use.
The book contains a variety of exercises, ranging from basic to advanced, to cater for a range of student abilities and interests. Plenty of lower level questions are included, allowing students to improve their skills.
Each chapter begins with an Opening Problem, offering an insight into the application of the mathematics that will be studied in the chapter. Important information and key notes are highlighted, while worked examples provide step-by-step instructions with concise and relevant explanations. Discussions, Activities, Investigations, Puzzles, and Research exercises are used throughout the chapters to develop understanding, problem solving, and reasoning, within an interactive environment.
Extensive Review Sets are located at the end of each chapter, comprising a range of question types including short answer, extended response, and multiple choice.
