Essential Mathematics for the Australian Curriculum Year 10 & 10A covers 10A content as clearly defined topics within chapters. 10A questions in chapter reviews and semester reviews are also clearly identified. In this way, the book can be used by both students undertaking the Year 10 course, and those completing the 10A course, whether in mixed or separate classes. Essential Mathematics for the Australian Curriculum has been developed by a team of highly experienced maths educators and proven authors to provide a complete teaching and learning program for the new curriculum. The logical and sequential development of topics encourages understanding, reduces lesson planning time, and allows the teaching program to be built around the textbook structure. It also ensures that students have covered prerequisite knowledge – including areas of maths that may or may not have been covered in primary school – before tackling new maths concepts. Complex probability and statistics concepts are covered accurately and at a level that is appropriate for students in junior and middle secondary. Diagnostic pre-tests at the start of each chapter help identify gaps in prerequisite knowledge while extensive chapter and semester reviews consolidate understanding and ensure students are prepared for future learning. Investigations and Puzzles encourage group work, literacy skills and creativity. Together with numeracy skills and ICT activities, these general capabilities are incorporated in every chapter. Carefully graded questions, focusing first on building understanding and fluency then on their application, are cross-referenced to worked examples which clearly demonstrate all key problem types. Every question is grouped according to the four proficiency strands – Understanding, Fluency, Problem-solving and Reasoning – allowing you to easily select a range of questions and problems for students with a wide variety of learning abilities, backgrounds and styles. Problem-solving and Reasoning questions are included in every exercise to promote logical and analytical thinking, and to encourage students to employ creative mathematical strategies to wide range of contexts and to achieve a deeper understanding. Enrichment questions in every exercise, and investigations, challenges and puzzles in every chapter, reflect curriculum aims by extending students in depth within a topic, rather than by accelerating content. Innovative digital resources and other technologies are integrated in the complete teaching and learning program as valuable tools for consolidating and expanding for knowledge and understanding in the maths classroom. Optional technology activities cater for a variety of school approaches and access to technology. They incorporate dynamic geometry, spreadsheets and calculators.
