Cambridge Senior Mathematics: Australian Curriculum/VCE builds on a proven teaching and learning formula to support the new AC/VCE Mathematics Study Designs for implementation in 2016. Our authors have unrivalled expertise in writing examples and problems to prepare students for exams, as well as proven experience interpreting the Australian Curriculum and VCE Study Designs for VCE students.
Developed from the popular Cambridge Essential Mathematics VCE series, the new series combines logical topic development with a wealth of examples, exercises, exam-style questions and a focus on what is important to guide students to VCE success.
- Carefully-developed creative and rigorous questions help students understand concepts and develop mathematical skills, apply maths to real life and prepare for exams. Drawing on the successful
- Essential Mathematics VCE style, the questions are now fully updated for the new study designs and latest exams.
- A new level of digital support, powered by Cambridge HOTmaths, allows you to navigate effortlessly and immediately from the Interactive Textbook to interactive animations, video examples, complete worked solutions*, automarked questions, online testing* and a powerful learning management system*.
*These features are available when students are linked to a class managed by a teacher. A teacher may choose to make worked solutions available.
